Where Do I Begin?

Okay, this has been the longest hiatus I have had from the blog.  Updating has been on my mind, but it has no been a priority in my life right now.  Where do I start?
The hubby and I decided to put our house on the market.  We felt it was better for a whole multitude of reasons.  We are renting the house where, if he did have to relocate somewhere, I can easily cover the rent by myself.

It is close to our current home, so not to disrupt our daughter too much, although she is taking it hard.  It is the only home she has known, so I can totally understand how she is feeling.  I think she may have to go to a different elementary school and we’ve been trying to prepare her for that for the fall.
Weight wise, I have managed to take off a couple of pounds, which is amazing.  With the packing of our house, and the stress…either I don’t eat or I eat more than I need.  I mean, last Saturday, after packing and cleaning, I didn’t eat anything all day until 7PM.  I was stressed and depressed.  The husband got me a subway sandwich and I only ate 1/2. 

It is hard trying to keep the house all nice and clean while we are showing it.  We get to move to the rental June 1st, so that will be added stress, but we won't have to worry about keeping this place “spotless”.  Family members are going to help us move, which is great.  It is a nice rental home, but not as big as our current home.  We had to get rid of some items.  We are hoping to eventually save money and buy a house in the next couple of years, but that depends on the hubby right now.
I had an interviewed on Monday at a great company, with great pay and benefits.  I want the job, as I would be doing something that I want to do and went to school for, as well as work with a couple of people I know.  However, it is up to the hiring manager and I think I did a great job at the interview.  I sent out thank you notes to everyone that I met and interviewed, so hopefully that is kuddos for me. Smile
Today, we have to be out of the house at noon, as there are some showings this afternoon.  Hopefully, someone will be interested, although I know that it may take awhile to sell this place. I’ve been trying to detach myself from the house. It  is so hard to do.

Wish us luck!

It's complicated

I suck!  I haven't updated in forever.  Sorry!  I have working, training and trying to get my head back in the weight loss game. My husband and daughter took me out to brunch for Mother's Day (Happy Mother's Day to the moms out there), which was really nice and sweet.  We are now on a very strict budget because the husband lost his job a week ago, so this was a splurge. His job loss was probably another reason why I've been stressed and not blogging. Ugh!  Yeah, it has been one heck of a week.

As the hubby job hunts, we've been trying to figure out what we want to do?  Do we want to stay in the PNW or move?  The job market all over the country is not the greatest, so no matter what we decide to do, there will be disadvantages.

So, my life is up in the air.  It is complicated, but I'm trying to remain positive.
