Week in review!
It's been a very crazy week for me. Remember when I said I would start posting daily? Yeah that didn't work out very well and I've learned a valuable lesson, in which I can't promise or say I'll post this or that because right now, my life is just a crazy roller coaster ride.
So week in review, what exactly kept me so busy the past few days?
I would have to say the biggest thing was finalizing the kid's schooling and finally getting them into Connections Academy. The weight is off my shoulders, I am now feeling relieved and ready to start the new year, and that is happening in less than a month. Goodness!!
We've also been working on getting a new vehicle. I didn't want to get into another car payment, it was not something I feel comfortable with but the truth of the matter is that we are down to no reliable vehicle between us.
My car still needs a new engine so it sits in our workshop, waiting, until we can save up some money and recover from this big move so we can get it fixed. It gets paid off early next year, can you believe that?
My husband's truck is running, but not very well and we need to have it looked at and fixed very soon, because I'm worried that if he keeps driving it, it will eventually break for good and I would hate to be stuck with two vehicles who need new engines.
Right now, we are looking at purchasing another vehicle, we've actually been driving it the past week and I'm in love with it. But between the dealership trying to make it's money, which they always do, and waiting on our own bank for a loan approval, it's taken the whole week. I feel as if I've had the phone attached to my ear for days and if you know me, you know how I feel about phone calls. Hate it!!!
As always I'm enjoying the wild life around me, especially the birds. I feel like every single day, I get to see one I hadn't seen before and they're all different colors.
I think they're Yellow Bellied Flycatchers, but I may be way off. If you know what they are let me know.
Anyway, I'm still enjoying my life here in Texas, I'm still loving the new house and our new life and I'm looking forward to getting a reliable vehicle so that we can start adventuring out and getting to know the area, there's nothing worse than moving to a new place and being stuck in the house with no way of going anywhere.
My plans for this weekend are:
- planting out front
- start seeds
- move exercise machine to the closet
- get office finished
- work on garage
- break down all the empty boxes and move to workshop
- finish putting up pictures, shelves etc
- clean the turtle tank
Yes, quite another busy weekend, but next week we are headed to Dallas, and I'm taking my camera so I can get a lot of pictures to share with you all.
I want so badly to try to do better at posting on the blog, because really my only other alternative is to stop blogging altogether, and I'm not quite sure I'm ready for that step. Guess I need to do some thinking on this one.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, sending you hugs until the next post :)
