I just want to say I miss writing and MISS YOU. I feel like I’m long overdue for a coffee date with a good friend. Thank you so much for the encouragement last week. Things are going better. It’s been a week of changes for sure. We are starting to get settled in to our new place as much as we can. We are renting out our old house so the focus right now is getting it ready for the new tenants by their move in date next weekend. There is lots of painting, repairing, caulking, yard work, and cleaning to be done over there before we can spend much time organizing our stuff here at the new house.
Unfortunately, during the move our fish, Shark Bait Whohehaha, died. This made me terribly sad and I found myself sobbing in my husband’s arms over a goldfish after our “flushing ceremony”. Is this normal?
I’m not the only one who will miss Shark Bait.
We don’t yet have internet at our new place and won’t until next Tuesday. WITHDRAWAL. It actually has been a nice change of routine except I miss reading about your lives. It’s funny, I’ll be painting and find myself wondering what so and so has been up to even though I haven’t met the majority of you in person! I’ll be catching up soon!
There are good things too. Thing 1 and Thing 2 were
complaining about working and wanting to go “home” calling the new place “home” within hours.
Even if last week was a tough one, I mentioned I am hopefully looking to new horizons. I’ve always found that when things feel really dark that God always lets in some light, often times, in unexpected ways. I got a part time job.
I feel so grown up. I’m going back to my old gym but this time as a trainer. I’ve been hired to help roll out and grow a new fitness program at a privately owned gym. They have removed a lot of the machines and replaced that section with barbells, KETTLEBELLS, medicine balls, rollers, rowers, and TRXs. The program is going to be focused on getting people off the hamster wheels machines and using their bodies in a more functional ways. It’s so exciting to see a bigger gym making changes that are for the benefit of their members and I’m super EXCITED to be a part of it!!! I teach my first class next week.
Well I need to get to bed. I have another tournament this weekend and I think MMA Mama will be there as well as another girl who is really really good. The two tournaments where I didn’t win in sparring, I was beat by those two girls so I should get some rest. Not that I want to win or anything. ;-) Not only that but I’m using up Brent’s allotted data on his phone.
I hope you are doing well. I’m looking forward to getting
MY INTERNET BACK back into a routine and catching up!
What have you been up to? Have you ever cried over a fish? Any major changes in your lives?
Hugs and High Fives,
