Some things I have been keeping inside for way too long...
Good news - DD made the last payment on her car in May. Brought the title last week to BMV to have it changed from Indiana to Tennessee and also put car in her name.
Bad news - while driving to work yesterday someone made a left turn in front of her while she was going through the intersection. You guessed it....they collided. Tow truck driver said in his opinion her car is totalled....other car just has some damage to the front passenger headlight area. Have to wait for insurance to be sure but looking at pictures on her cell phone hers looks like she was hit by a truck.
Good news -- Only the vehicles were damaged. DD only has a bruise on her collarbone and stomach from seatbelt. The five in the other car were also okay. Thank goodness for airbags.
Good news - DH retired.
Bad news -- Company he worked for was taken over by another while coming out of bankruptcy and decided to move the headquarters to Minnesota from Memphis and use their existing staff members to fill the positions. So as of May 31st, he and several hundred others were out of jobs.
Good news -- In May, our DS graduated from high school with a regular diploma. Which for us was an amazing accomplishment as he is 21 and was diagnosed with autism at 6 yrs old. We had been told by previous school systems that at best he would get a certificate of completion. The school system here in Tennessee from the administrators to the teachers/staff said he/we can do better than that....and set about doing just that. It wasn't an easy road but we are so proud of him.
Good news -- I resigned my position at the school I worked at. It really was not a good fit for me.
Bad news -- now I need to find a job with benefits as with DH' s retirement we will not have any once COBRA is gone.
Good news -- we may be moving......for those that know Me. Yes again.....
Bad news -- haven't decided where just yet.
Good news -- went to Texas a few weeks ago to check out the San Antonio and Austin areas. This week we are headed to the Nashville area to check it out.
Bad news -- through all the upheaval of the last few weeks/months .... I have gained 10+ pounds and am feeling down...and questioning why I am on this journey to a healthier lifestyle.......
Thanks for reading my blog....
