Sunday - a pretty quiet day around here. And a lovely one. The heat has dissipated and I threw open the windows in every single room in the house and had a breeze through the second floor. I realized my second floor windows - which slide open can be open on either side - either left or right. I never realized this before today.
Rebel came over to the house looking for money, and cold medication. It seems her BF can't afford to buy this for her. She also asked to take some food from the pantry. I don't have to say anything - one of her friends was doing it for me. After that Rebel took a nap in her old room before leaving with her care packages. She seems to like her job at the gym so that's good.
Apparently XSU was opining on my lack of budgeting skills because I wouldn't give Rebel cash so she went to him. (of course she did) I told Rebel that what I did with my money or lack of it was none of her father's business since he decided to leave and gave up his right to tell me what to do with my life. She was surprised for some reason. Well think about it, I told her, why do I care what an ex husband has to say? He didn't care enough to help manage finances when we were married so why would I care what he thinks after he's left? Even more surprising - she agreed with me. Today. Tomorrow will be another day.
I start a new job on Monday. It's the first time that I am changing jobs and staying in the same organization. I am moving from a real office to a cube in a room without windows. I still haven't completely cleared out my office and organized it for the person coming in. There was no pressure since I wasn't actually leaving the place. I am really looking forward to just doing a "job" rather than managing people, dealing with budgets, strategic plans and crap. It will be a tough job but it will be good fun.
Moving on .
I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.
