Getting Ready for the Sale

My husband and I bought a new house. We are so thrilled. It has two car garage and is almost 600 square feet bigger than our current shoe box. YAY! The stress now is selling our current home. And worse.....getting the house ready for show. I have so much crap to go through and cleaning to do. You don't realize all the things you overlook in your everyday life. The dust on the baseboards, the dirt and fingerprints on the front door, etc. OK, so most people might have noticed these things and dealt with them, but I am not a fan of cleaning. Husband noticed the other day that you can see the outline of the Christmas decals that I had on our patio door. He seemed shocked that I had not cleaned the window since Christmas. Oops.

The most exciting thing is going to be that everything will be new and finished!!!! We bought this house as a fixer upper so the past 2 years have been living in a state of renovation. This new one will be brand new with no work needing to be done but paint. Ahhhh, the bliss.

So whats on the menu for tomorrow? Cleaning. I will be the one person who is not chearing TGIF. I'll be saying "damn, I wish it was Monday and all the cleaning was done".

Workin Girl

So now is the time to start thinking about work after maternity leave. It sucks. I technically still have 4 months left but if I am to look for a new job instead of going back to the old one, I have to do that in the next two months. I really, really don't want to. How do moms do this? Entrust your most precious possession to someone else? I know of lots of people who were looking forward to going back but I'm just not one of them. I love the freedom I have to do whatever the heck I want to in a day.

The other reason I dread going back to work is that I feel I have no direction. I'm one of those people who hasn't found their passion yet. I haven't figured out what I want to do for a career. It's very frustrating. I have a husband and friends who are doing what they have dreamed about for 10 years. How do I find out what I am meant to do? Or do I spend my life just working a job instead of building a career?

The First One

Wow. I'm officially a blogger now. I know a few people who have blogs (that I read regularily) who I don't see on a regular basis. I love how I can keep up with whats going on in their lives without speaking with them. Sounds kinda lazy I know but we all have busy lives right?

I guess I will tell a little about myself in this first entry. I am 26, have an 8 month old daughter and have been married for almost 4 years. My life is great but it certainly has its ups and downs.

I know this is kinda short but it's very late and I don't want to get too far into anything. I'll write more tomorrow.
