Holy Crap. I’ve been gone for a while- not actually gone, just mentally gone.
I started a new job a few weeks ago- I’m an actual employee (not a contractor like before), and it’s great. I only work till’ 1 but I’m always really busy, so my blogging-at-work freedom is no more. I thought having my afternoons off would give me time to blog, but I’m always doing chores or being outside. After spending my morning on a computer, I’m not especially drawn to get back on my laptop at home.
However, this week I am working full-time hours filling in at one of our company’s other offices, and I’m bored bored bored. BORED, I tell you! So I decided to blog. I tried to sign on and I got an error message about cookies. Seeing as how my cookies usually burn, I decided not to pursue the issue but rather to try and sneak into blogger without the cookies finding out by signing in on a comments page instead of a main page, which worked somehow, but is entirely beside the point. So, here I am. Alive, and doing OK.
I’ve been in sort of a dark place lately. After much prayer and discussion (and crying, all by me), Stephen and I have decided to move away from Denver. He’s going to join his dad’s business, so by the end of the year, we’ll be living 1500 miles away from everything I know and love.
I’m torn about it. I know in my heart of hearts that this is the right decision for us and that God is definately leading us to take this course. But I grew up in Denver and I always thought I would raise my kids there. I like just getting in my car and being in the mountains in under an hour. I like living 10 minutes away from my parents. This is my home- I’m heartbroken about leaving. I lost sleep for 2 or 3 nights after we first talked about it, but now I have a peace. But that doesn’t mean I’m happy about it. It’s been pretty heavy on my mind, and that’s mostly why I haven’t posted lately.
Anyway, now that I know how to trick my computer into letting me blog at work, I’ll probably post more today and tomorrow. I’m so BORED!
