Five Minute Friday

START. . What's up? Well here it is in a bullet list.

  • The spring was full of concern for Kenny's job.
  • August brought job loss.
  • Interviews.
  • Discussions. Decisions.
  • Job offer.
  • More discussions and decisions.
  • Job acceptance.
  • Kenny moved 300 miles to start new job.
  • "For Sale" sign goes up in the yard.
  • Carly and I are continuing on.

Today's little points ...

.

new roof finished just in time for the rain storm so we could discover that the new roof leaks, flower beds a wreck following 3 days of careless roofers, the dumpster that was placed in the front yard for the roofers was removed last night at 9:00 while the yard was still muddy (yep, big ruts), still no T.V because the roofers removed the satellite and as the helpful (NOT) lady from direct T.V says "you can't just put it back up".

.

Today's big points ... .

All that to be said... thank you for a little tennis on a gorgeous day with friends; thank you for lunch outside with more really good friends who showed concern, offered help, and then distracted me and made me laugh; thank you for a beautiful October night and the desire of Carly to go hang out with friends at the high school football game. And thank you for a sweet, loving, caring husband who is worrying 300 miles away that I might be losing it. I love you Sweetie. Really, I'm fine!

.

STOP.
