School has been in session about two weeks now. Both boys attend full time this year. It’s been a bit of an adjustment not having my little hell raiser here during the day. I can’t say I mind the break, but I do find myself getting bored. There’s only so much house work I can force myself to do in a day.
I dedicate about 45 minutes per day to job searching. I found an admin position with the county that seems promising. I submitted an application, hope I hear back. County benefits would be a huge budget win for us, since DH’s are crap.
I’m still unpacking the house, box by box, but I am growing frustrated with the amount of junk we’ve accumulated. You don’t realize how much stuff you have until you have to pack and unpack it all!! DH put in for a week off later this month. If it’s approved, we’re planning a 2 day yard sale. I bet we have at least $1,000 worth of stuff to sell.
I decided to get out of my comfort zone and sign up for a 6 week personal fitness class. It offers 3 classes per week for 6 weeks, with a nutritionist provided meal plan. It’s $100 for the 6 weeks, which I found reasonable. I start this weekend. I am nervous. But I’m pushing myself to get healthier and this is step 1. I nearly had a panic attack walking in to the place to register. I spoke with the two women in charge, they were lovely, and paid. There’s no turning back now!
Accident update: DH received the POA to complete for the at-fault drivers insurance company. They’re now in control of our Capital One auto loan and will pay it in full and mail us the difference. That’s just for the value of the truck, they still owe us for the car seats, and the lawyer is still withholding a chunk for medical he is negotiating.
House update: Finally had two contractors call us back to set up estimates. I hope they are reasonable, because our adjustor (still MIA), sure didn’t give us much to work with. We did buy the kitchen cabinets at Lowe’s, since it was over $600 we received a 20% discount. That leaves us with about $2,200 to hire someone to demo, reinstall, and patch the ceiling.
