well I'm still alive!
Ok. So I was at home a couple of weeks ago and I realized how much I hate my job. Seriously! It's not what I want. Now or ever. I am thankful for the opportunity to work here for almost 4 years, but I think my time has come up. So, I started job searching. Then, I realized, if I quit my job, I won't have a place to live (I get free apartment & utilities with my job).
Hubby has been talking about getting a house. I always said no because I really didn't think through the idea. I thought we could never make it (moneywise). But you know what? We totally can. So, we are buying a house.
So we were torn between a used home or having a new home built. So we went to see a couple of used homes and we also contacted a contractor which is really good friends with my Mother in law. And apparently we qualify and we can buy a new home!!!! We are so thrilled!!! This is a dream come true. So we have picked out the color of the cabinets, granite and tile. Today we go with to the bank and start all the singing!!! It's an amazing feeling. we have dreamed about getting our own home for a long time!And we still can't believe it!
So as you can imagine I've been really busy. I'm waiting for my call for the new job (full time, benefits, much much better pay), taking 2 online courses (1 math!! argghh), and planning our new home stuff.
Last week I did miss a couple of workouts but I have been wokring out this week. And I've lost 2 more lbs! I think I was doing too much strength training and not enough cardio! So now I am doing lots of cardio. and I love it actually.
My dad got a call from the neurosurgeon. He has his appointment on sept 15! can you believe that?!?! It's really frustrating but at least we have a date now. We are just waiting.
So that is a brief update on my last 2 weeks! I have to go, I have to clean up the apartment before we head out to the bank.
Sorry, I haven't been on as much. I promise as soon as we are less busy I'll be here!!
