Lovely Changes Are Coming!

Purple Flowers

I am so happy to say that great changes are coming in my life!  Well, at least one great change!  I’m moving to a wonderful new place!!  It is about ten hundred kabillion steps up from the place I’m currently living in.  My current place is so small, I couldn’t even fit a couch, and I have no room to do any of my creative projects.  The new place is very spacious, with room for a new couch, it’s a one bedroom with a study, it has lovely granite countertops and nice flooring and new carpet, a gas fireplace (I LOVE gas fireplaces in the winter!!), a closet in the study and a walk-in closet in the bedroom, storage off the balcony, a pool, hot tub, and workout room.  I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!  Oh, and it’s on a greenbelt, not on a damn street, so I won’t have all the traffic noise!!!  It’s just so great.  Now I just need to pack, pack, pack my ass off these next two weekends, (and probably some during the week) and I will move on June 30.  AND to top it off, the month of July is FREE!!!  So that’s how I will finance buying a new couch and a new ottoman for my current easy chair (my current ottoman is busted).  I will also pay my parents back a big chunk of the money I owe them.  It scares the shit out of me to spend money, because it makes me scared that I’m manic, but I have made the decision to spend some.  And I will still have a good chunk left over.  I am SO HAPPY with how things are looking up!!

A few months ago I only had hopes and dreams of moving out of this shithole, but no actual means of doing so.  I thought I was going to have to move in with Mom and Dad, which was a depressing thought.  I am so super-glad that I don’t have to do that.  It will make me feel good every day to be in a nicer place.

The job is going well, although some mornings I feel tired of the same thing over & over and I wonder how I’m going to keep it up.  How do people do this over & over for years & years & years????  Life is so hard to sustain!!!  But I have to keep going, which means I have to take really good care of myself.  Living in this new place will make it a lot easier.  I will be able to work out, and relax at a pool and hot tub.  Also, I’ll be able to ride my bike to work if I want, the job will be about a mile or two down the road.

My mood is holding up well.  I have been getting up early in the morning and walking in the cool air, and I’ve also been walking at work over my lunch hour.  The picture I posted is from my morning walk.  I’ve been getting my 10,000 steps in on most days.  I haven’t lost any more weight (damn it) probably due to the enormous peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I’ve been eating for lunch.  I’ve become lazy on lunch-making.  Nevertheless, I will keep up the exercise and tracking what I eat.  I’m not going to give up on the weight loss!

Well I need to get to packing.  Hope you are all well.  Thank you to everyone who follows me, and welcome to the new followers!!  Let me know how you are in the comments please!!  Love and hugs to you all!  Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers!  Peach out!

  1. Truly wonderful news! I’m so happy for you! I’m babysitting this summer, and we started having 99 degree days in May here in Kansas. 98 yesterday on my day off, which I pretty much slept thru! Life here is good, too, we won’t talk about the hubs accidentally getting us overdrawn by upwards of $300. I will now be taking care of all the finances, and Banktivity does have its little quirks. We’ll celebrate (in some sort of kludgy way) our 20th anniversary. So, enjoy the new place and keep us all posted!

  2. Oh Sue I was hoping to hear from you!!! So sorry about being overdrawn!! But you sound good!!! Babysitting sounds like fun, better than the other work you were doing! And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! I always love hearing from you, thank you so much!! BIG HUGS TO YOU!!!!

    • Thanks so much!! I’m going to be very grateful for my new place. I’ve been grateful for my shithole, because it was a home of my own after living with family for years, but I’m definitely ready for something better 😁

      • Yes. This wasn’t my first time moving away, I had always lived on my own, but then I had a period of three years on Disability and kind of moved backwards in life. It’s been hard to come back from that.

      • I am doing really well now. It took forever to get stable. I was on ECT for a long time when I was on Disability. I was on private Disability through my employer, and the limit for mental illness was three years. I couldn’t get SSI Disability (three appeals) so I had no choice but to go back to work. I didn’t think I could do it, but I am doing it, one day at a time. I find it to be extremely exhausting. I try to be grateful every day and that helps.

      • I’m so happy to hear that you’re doing so good now. Yes it’s exhausting to go back to work and function full time again. I’m on lifetime disability from my country, so what I work with now is for free . I got crazy being just home and want to see what I can do.

      • It took me 14 years to get it and I got sicker and sicker so couldn’t work at all in the end. Norway is good when you finally get it , but once you have it they forget about you .

  3. The picture of the flowers is so gorgeous! And this is absolutely fantastic news – living in a better place will make a HUGELY positive difference!!!! I’m beyond thrilled for you, sweet peach! Good luck with the rest of packing!!!! 💖👍💐🌈

  4. Exercise is great. Keep it up. I’ve started running and have lost no weight either. At first this annoyed me but now I just enjoy the buzz of a achieving the run. I’m sure a fitter self will gradually appear the more you manage (John)

  5. I just read your last few posts and I am SO happy for you about the new job and the new place. 🙂 🙂 I’m currently in the same situation where you were in a little while ago about trying to find a job…
