I know I know

I know it has been awhile since my last post. I swear to you that my life has been going 90 to nothing the past...what...15 days since my last post. My goal is to have a post up at the very least once a week. at.the.very.least. So I am going to get right on that again. I promise.

I haven't had much time to think about stuff to write about, so I am basically just going to talk about life...right now anyway.

The apartment is treating me fine. The more days I spend here the more I like it. Samuel actually asked me today why we didn't live in our house anymore. He is still adjusting... I have him every wednesday and every 1st, 3rd and 5th weekends. This coming up weekend he is with his mom, so I am going to spend this next week redoing his room. The theme is 'outer space' and I can't ever begin to tell you how excited I am. I may just be getting a little carried away. So far I have this great outer space bedding that I found online, an old iron bed that natalie is letting more borrow that I will be painting green or orange or yellow or red (I haven't really decided), these wall stickers that I ordered online, this rocket ship lamp, these circle rugs for the floor to look like planets, these two cartoon looking rocket ship/space ship paintings, this big moon night light, this big star night light, those glow in the dark stars/planets that you put on the ceiling, a blow up rocket, a blow up alien and I still need a night stand to put his lamp on. Yeah..I may be getting carried away, but it is a kids room. son's room. So these things are important! I will take pictures and share once I am finished. Lots to do this weekend.

My new job is going great! There is a lot to learn, but I am getting the hang of it. I do training and development and this company has never had a training group support them, so everything is a big mess. But I like a good challege, so I am excited.

Those are the two big items on the list right now. I know it isn't exciting to read about, but I will have better stuff soon.

On the Up and Up

I was talking to erin the other day...actually chatting I believe on gchat and she said "can you believe how much your life has changed in the past week?" and I thought to myself..OMG NO I CAN'T! It is crazy.

From Friday April 24th - Friday May 1st the following things happened:

- I interviewed for a job.
- I got a job. yay!
- I sold my house.
- I found an apartment.
- I scheduled a move.

You see...for MONTHS my life has sort of been...what's the word?.... sort of just there. I have been living in the house that my ex-wife and I built several years ago. Half empty. Knowing that I was going to move, so I haven't bothered to buy anything new or change it in anyway. I haven't been working because I was laid off. It wasn't all just seemed like my life was at a stand still.

but within a WEEK things started falling into place. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about my new place. It is sort of old...but it has a little character. And my JOB! is great. It really is. So things are going well. Really well.

- Great friends
- New job
- New apartment
- A boy that gives me butterflies everytime I think of him

I really couldn't ask for anything more.
