Time seems to slip away and here I am almost a couple weeks since my last blog post! Summer has finally truly arrived in Michigan and we've been enjoying it, yet I already see how quickly it is going to slip away. I've actually been working a lot the past several weeks at a few different communities, so it has been 'new' for me to work things into my schedule that I find important - yoga, walking/biking, laundry, shopping, cooking, time with Thad and Izzie, and seeing friends. I am starting to see what life could be like working full time again but living my life in a new healthier way than I ever did before. I do like the 11-6 hours I have working at the model homes, but don't like the weekend days so much. I still don't know what I want to do when we move to California, but this job has been perfect for now and what I need.
Speaking of California - we should have some news in the next couple weeks about where Thad's company would like us to move to and a better handle on planning for when. He told them our preference is October. Going back to Oceanside is looking likely. I still have dreams of living in walking distance to the beach (and walking distance to the commuter train for Thad) - plus just give me a nice kitchen and a good location for Izzie and we'll all be happy. October will roll around before we know it and so I've been starting to put items on craigslist and ebay that we need to get rid of and started pricing things for an August garage sale. It is a little overwhelming as we have so much to find new homes for. We both really want to minimize what we take and enjoy the freedom of living more unencumbered by the 'things' in our lives. So, lots to do in my off time going through things!
