My Week In Review

I’m happy to say that our week went fairly well. The drive got a little crazy as we were going through the rains of Faye. It was the worst weather either my husband or I remember ever driving through, and to top it off, it was dark. We were driving about 45 mph on the interstate and saw several wrecks along the way and actually stopped at one time because I couldn’t see the road at all and was getting scared. I’m still glad we didn’t wait until this weekend to come up. I hear that a lot of people in the gulf region of our state are headed north. There’s not a mandatory evacuation, and we’re not sure if Gustav will hit there or not, but either way, it’s good to have all of our stuff out ahead of time. And I’m happy that my husband and I aren’t sitting for hours in stand still traffic.

All in all, we had a pretty good week. I went to a job interview on Friday for a temporary position. I was very nervous about it, but it went pretty well. Not sure if I’ll get the job or not because I don’t have experience in the area which the position is for, but you never know.

As for the house, everything is looking good. In a lot of ways, it’s going to look like a new house when their done. Once the work is done, I’ll take some pictures and post them. I have a couple of “before” pictures that I’ll try to post as well. They were taken with a disposable camera rather than digital, so I’m sure how good they’ll look once scanned, but we shall see. Anyway the painting is almost finished, and they should begin putting in the new floors sometime this week. We’ll still have to do some cosmetic work to the outside of the house and to the outbuilding. But we can do all of that after we’ve moved in. (and boy, am I ready to move in!)

In thinking about moving, doing home improvements, and doing a little decorating and organizing, I’ve already got a ton of new post ideas. And hopefully in the next few days or week, I’ll get back to doing some regular posts on these very topics. It’s strange how you get so used to posting that you actually miss it, when you don’t get to do it. I also miss my laptop and my highspeed connection. (Right now I’m using my old computer which is on a dial up connection and is very slow!) Can’t wait to get into the new place and get back in the groove!


  1. Good news all around Jerri by the sound of things!! Fingers crossed for that new job 🙂
