Just a little summary of how things are going lately.

GOOD
• Thanks to not divorcing W and not having to pay him his equity in the house the mortgage has been fully paid off this month.
• I finally got the Mirena IUD placed late last month, and it will hopefully help with the “lady issues” I’ve struggled with for so long. So far so good according to my Dr.
• Summer is almost here meaning camps for N, vacation for N and me at some point, and hopefully no more cold weather for a few months.
• I’ve gone back to manicuring my own nails on a fairly regular basis and even bought some new nail polish. N likes when I wear bright red (which I seldom do), but I prefer more muted tones.

BAD
• For N’s soccer tournament this weekend the weather looks to be clear on Friday and Sunday, but his games are on Saturday and Monday when the forecast is less kind.
• Last week we wrapped up in blankets to watch Little League. This week we are sweltering even in the shade even in the evening.
• W’s health is not so great, not that it has been for a long time, but his current issues are really hurting him. I’d go into more detail except for the fear he would search on a symptom or disease or whatnot and find this blog. Not that it matters that much, but there’s no reason to hurt his feelings more than I already have.
• N’s been on the DL (disabled list for those of you that were thinking down low) a lot lately first with strep throat and now with a sprained wrist. It’s bumming him out to miss so much baseball and soccer. At least the wrist is better enough that he’s back to playing soccer since it doesn’t count on wrist strength and flexibility much to play soccer.

UGLY
• My hair, which is in its natural state of long, scraggly, and graying. Hopefully, with the mortgage paid off I can return to keeping it beautiful. I’d still like it long, but less scraggly and less gray.
• Work has been ugly for a while now. I am kind of caught in the middle of a personality clash situation that I didn’t intend to be in the middle of. I’m sorry, but I can get along with each party separately. The fact that they can’t get along with one another shouldn’t be my problem. Must refuse to listen to both sides. Play nice girls, play nice.
• The lawn at home is more scraggly than my hair, but at least it’s the right color – green. Again with the mortgage paid off maybe I can hire someone to do something about it. I’m so terrified of the poison ivy and poison sumac (due to the bad reactions I have had in the past) that’s out there I just can’t bring myself to get out there and do it myself.

Okay so that’s my update. It ain’t much, but it’s all I got.

But still nice to have an update, seems like much is at least heading in a better direction, and mortgage caught up etc, has to feel *great*

I miss your postings sooo much!

Fusion said...

Paid off as in you own it free and clear? That's an awesome feeling and place to be in, isn't it?
Good to hear from you True!

Sailor - Yes, things are, in general, headed in a better direction. It's just that when real life is going well it doesn't seem to lend to blogging much. :(

Ginny - Thanks. I hope I get to a place where I can resume more regular posts, maybe when I can finally afford to replace my long dead laptop. :)

Fusion - Yep, I own the house free and clear. I say "I" not "we" because W executed a quit claim deed a while back so no matter what this house is 100% mine and paid for. Hallelujah!

Congrats on being a free-&-clear home owner, that's awesome!
I've got to post about my bummer of a holiday weekend, but need a little more time/space/perspective...
[Not 100% tragedy, but I need to contemplate more to discern that silver lining]

Congratulations on paying off the mortgage. Don't forget you may have to pay your own property taxes and/or home owners insurance now that it isn't automatically paid as part of the mortgage.
