Checking In

Hello friends-- I am tired as hell and can only stay for a few minutes. Here's what I've been up to the last few days:

  • I am on *vacation* from work-I am very fortunate to have a butt load of vacation time and I am soooo grateful for that!

  • this is a working vacation, but that is OK.

  • I am finally getting off my dead ass, and I feel much better mentally

  • physically however, I do not. I am getting a cold and that's what I get for boasting that I NEVER get sick

  • I helped move my sister-in-law out of her house the last few days, holy hell she has a lot of *stuff*. We got done at about 3 o'clock this morning.

  • even though it was basically just the two of us women moving EVERYTHING including my *new refrigerator and stove*(YAY) we had a blast and I love this girl to pieces.

  • this SIL is POS's sister(and a very good friend of mine), and during the move I got to see and speak his other siblings and I think they no longer think I am such a bitch, or whatever they thought I was. It was nice catching up with them and knowing they no longer hold a grudge.

  • I did get my new appliances, but the are currently in my living room (HAHA) until I get the new floor installed. This will hopefully happen in the next few days.

  • I had a PPT meeting with my son's current school and his new high school team. He is going to a Tech high school and I am very excited for him. He got to sit in on this meeting and I was VERY proud of him, he answered questions appropriately and was on his best behavior for the new administrators. I see maturity creeping up in many ways with him recently and I am very proud of my boy.

  • my son and my son from anotha mutha helped over the weekend with the move. It's amazing what 13 year olds will do for you when you flip them 20 bucks!

Wow, relax for a while, girlie, lol. Hey with all that vay-kay time, you should come visit good ole Michigan sometime and hang out! Seriously, think about the laughs...

Pat said...

You sound happy and the vacation sounds great. I just vegetate on mine and don't do much work at all. Or at least I try to avoid doing work. Glad that your son is doing well.

Sounds like my kind of vacation. Take off work to do harder work.
When I remodeled the bathroom I had a washer and dryer, and a toilet, in the middle of my kitchen. That was pretty funny for, oh, about an hour. It definitely got me moving on that floor.
can't wait to see pictures!!!

Hope you get everything put together with some spare time to enjoy it before your va-ca is over. Wow, what great news on your son!

Honestly I think women get more things doen faster than if the guys chipped in and helped. Although having the two sons on board I'm sure was a lot of help too. Try to at least enjoy a "little" of your vacation time dear friend. (Hugs)Indigo
