There is a lot going on in our lives lately, and there are a lot of changes being made…personally, professionally, emotionally…you name it, it’s probably in a state of transition in our home & lives right now. This is a good turn of events…but also a hard, scary process. Everything from how much we drink to how we communicate to how we pay our bills is up for change. I need to take control of some issues that have been eating me alive, and the best way I know how to do that is to just start from square one.
Here’s the problem… as in love as I am with our new house, it makes some changes a little harder, a little scarier. Bills are tighter, nerves are frayed, and the responsibilities of real life are a little more intense.
The good news? Even though today was my husband’s last day of work (he’s a custom home builder and they’re out of work again), I’m doing okay. We just found out that they’ll have a little job (lasting 2-3 weeks) that will start later this month, and though it sucks to even lose one day of income, at least we have a little security there. Then we also just found out that his Dad’s best friend (who owns a concrete company in the area) just landed a huge job in a town about 90 miles away. It will be a commute, but it’s a JOB. It’s going to be a lot of driving, but it pays well and it’s a solid seven or so months of work that will get us through the winter. Hopefully by the time spring rolls around, there will be more houses to build and work to be had.
My work is in transition as well, though it’s not something I can write about on here yet. Hopefully I will be able to soon!
