Packing Up Stuff

Our office is being remodeled.  That means everything has to be packed for the movers by 4pm today.  Luckily I don't have a lot of stuff, but it can still be a pain.  The biggest pain will be working from home for the next week.  I love working from home, but I want to make sure I don't pack something I actually need to do my work. 

I've been absent from my blog because I've been so freakin' busy.  I'm trying to wrap stuff up at the office and then take on stuff at the tea room, plus keep my cub scouts happy.  I know that when November hits life will take on a different tone.  But for now I have to get through October and do this stuff!

I'm really getting excited about my contract work.  I think it's going to be great.  Now if I can just GET there.

Time is running out...

Clock by Junghans, circa 1890 - 1920

I've given my notice at my "day job".

This makes me very happy.  For the last year I've been working on average of seven days a week with my contracting work and the day job.  I'm at the point where I have to let one go and obviously it will be the day job.  This move gives me more flexibility and allows me to be with the CO Boy when I need to be as well as facilitate the expansion of my sister's business.

But getting out of here ain't easy.  My boss is a dear friend and as such, I've given a six-week notice so we can get someone in here.  But there's so much to wrap up.  So much to tell folks, like where the dead bodies are buried, etc. 

But I'm really happy with my decision and I feel it in my bones that it's the right thing to do.

Sidenote:  Is that clock gorgeous or what??  Sold for about $600 at auction.  That's a steal if you ask me.

No bounding just yet

Okay.  So this isn't us just yet...
But we're still trying!

The days are changing and this morning when I woke up for boot camp it was dark.  Ick.  But I got out of bed, and walked to the family center to meet Laura and our trainer. 

She kicked our butts.  But she has to work a bit harder to do that now, in comparison to our first pathetic day.  So while I don't feel like the pup bounding in the first pic, know that we are on our way!

Right now, we both have a little spring in our step as we walk quickly-:).
