Boy has this been a week from you know where. I was so afraid that we would have a hard time finding some place to live. I have been so stressed and upset that I literally could hardly think straight. I think the worst part of this whole week was the sense of betrayal I felt. I am sure that my landlord was upset also but it could all have been avoided if he had just keep his word or at least explained why he changed his mind instead of trying to put the blame on me. Any way I guess it has worked out. I just hope he realizes that going to court will not help either one of us.
On the up side the apartment complex that we are moving to has a full fitness center that is open 24 hours a day. Now I have no excuse not to use the treadmill when the weather is bad and no reason not to do some strength training weekly. In the summer time they also have a pool dedicated to doing laps. If you have to move after 5 years then this is a nice place to go. I will also be forced to get rid of all the STUFF that I no longer need but have just been holding on to. Please keep me in your prayers. There is a lot of work to be done in a little amount of time.

This Thanksgiving I have many many things to be thankful for. The most important is my family and friends. My daughter has jumped right in and is helping me get ready for the move. She is taking a week of her vacation time just to help. She is also providing Christmas for her brother's child as he will not be able to this year. She buys for Dylan just as if he is her son. My son and his family are wonderful also. I have a great job that I love and get to help provide care and support for families in critical situations. I hope each and every one of my Spark friends have a wonderful Holiday and keeps the eating under control. Enjoy the food but keep in mind how hard you have worked this last few weeks or months to lose the weight.

    I hear you on the decrapifying of stuff...however it is wonderful to hear that things are falling into place. I can not imagine what you've been through.

    It seems that Thanksgiving started a bit early for you, may the rest of year go well and it be even better next year.

    Happy to hear things seem to be working out nicely. It's a huge task, but downsizing and decluttering always feel very freeing to me once it's done. Sounds like you have a wonderful family. Hope you can find a little time to enjoy the holiday.

    How stressful with the whole apartment thing, but sounds like you are moving to a great place. Nice that it has a fitness center to help you work on your goals - no excuses now! Your daughter sounds like a wonderful person. How great is that! Have a very happy Thanksgiving! Good luck with the packing and purging.
