I haven’t posted much lately due to our site being hacked. WTF?! Come on hackers, there are sites out there that get FAR more traffic than ours! Move on to them, and hack away!
Whew! I’m glad I got that off my chest.
So, changes. Yep, there’s a lot changing in our world right now. We’ve been working really hard to put our house on the market. We’ve decided that we need to live somewhere else. For our GA friends, that may mean somewhere closer to Johns Creek. Not that we don’t like Sugar Hill, but our lives are out in the Johns Creek area. It also may mean a move somewhere else. We just don’t know yet. We do know that the first thing to do is sell our house, and then whatever we decide, we can accomplish a lot easier. Hopefully our house will go on the market within the next few weeks.
We’ve had rooms painted, put stuff in storage, made more trips to Goodwill than ever, and in general, we’re getting ready. This has taken a toll on both of us. Eli too. He asked me the other day, “mom, will we also sell our toilet?” What a crazy thing to ask, but I suppose it is in his realm of thought, and therefor a concern. He’s also been very concerned about us selling his toys. I’ve never though about this decision though his eyes, and I’m beginning to see that more things than I think impact him. That creature simply amazes me every day.
What else is changing, how about my employment status. Nothing has been confirmed for me, but I’m fairly certain my days are numbered where I work. I’ve been with this company long enough to know when layoffs are coming – there are things you see and notice, and these have certainly been happening. You take these hints and couple them with office gossip and rumors, and the writing on the wall is not only evident, but it’s neon green. While I wish I could go on and on about how I’m devastated by this news, I’m really glad it’s happening. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s not easy to hear your name isn’t picked for the soccer team. You might ask as to why I’m glad, well, I’ll write that post after the deed is done. So, if you know anyone looking for a business analyst/trainer/tech writer, give me a shout, ok? Networking is important.
And one more change… Eli is wrapping up his Pre-K year. He’ll do the summer camp at his school, but after that, it’s on to Kindergarden at the local Elementary school. I have a mix of emotions about this one, but it’s still a tough pill to swallow. My boy is growing up, and with that his mom had no idea the emotional impact this would have on her. I have often described my mom as being an emotional rock. I wonder if she had melt-downs too, but just did them where I couldn’t see. I’ll add that to the list of things to ask her.
So, changes are happening. Exciting and scary, all wrapped in to one! 🙂
