Hey, Look Who Remembered They Had a Blog!

Yes, yes, I know.  It's been a while.  Sorry, couldn't be helped.  I have been really, really busy and it looks like it's not going to slow down any time soon.

I'll give you the Reader's Digest version of life and perhaps in some future blogs I'll bore you with the details!  LOL.  Okay so let's see, the trip to Parris Island to see my nephew graduate from boot camp was fabulous.  Everyone behaved so all was well.  I will definitely be writing about that soon.

Frank's new job is going really well.  They are training him to be a foreman and that seems to have made him really happy.  It's so great to have a conversation with him at the end of the day and hear the positive attitude and to see him smiling.  Praise GOD!

I just got a promotion and an amazing raise.  I was floored by the whole offer and actually hugged my bosses because I was just overwhelmed with the whole thing.  So as of now I am officially a full-time working woman.  I am a little scared about the transition and finding my way around being a wife and mother and working 40+ hours a week.  I know that millions of women do it but I am certainly not as young as I used to be and so it all seems rather daunting right now.  

But exciting.

We went out and bought a new living room set this weekend.  We haven't bought NEW furniture (not hand-me-down/yard sale/Goodwill furniture) in over 20 years!  We actually have money left over at the end of the month - money that will allow us to move out of this stupid rental house and get away from our crazy landlord.  We can move to a bigger rental house or possibly stick it out for another year and have a sweet down payment to buy a house.  We're still working it out but it's exciting to even have the possibility.

So yes, life is crazy busy.  Challenge accepted.
