It's about time for an update. I have been living in a blur of time going by too fast. My work days are fast paced and they fly by in a hurry. I was shocked to find that Wednesday was over already.
Things are going well for me at work right now. There has been a struggle or five going on lately, but things seem to be going my way right now. As I always say, "It ain't over till it's over". Some days I think I'll be lucky to still have my job after this buy out, and other days I think everything is fine. As for this moment in time, I'm safe. Tomorrow may bring a whole new catastrophe.
If all goes well and I don't get canned before years' end, I am going to realize my ultimate goal of being a remote coder from home. ::celebration noises and happy dances go here:: It is like a raise, since I will have zero commute and no lunches out, no time wasted on getting ready for work in the morning. I'll just roll out of bed, brush my teeth, get a cup of coffee, and "commute" into my home office. I am happy that the time I spend doing hair and make-up and driving to and from work will be time I can spend on my life and doing what I want to do.
My sister has married herself off and she is moving out of my house at the end of this month. That leaves the old homestead empty for the next several months. I've had someone offer to rent it from me, but I want to take my time and do some things to the place before I rent it out or live in it myself. I could move into my paid off house and make my big city salary in my little town home. That is THE smart thing to do. Obviously. My problem is that I adore my community that I live in here in Texas and I don't want to leave it. I prefer every single thing about living here, except the fact that none of my loved ones are close by. I can afford to stay here. I might end up selling my house and buying a new one here, but I just don't know. I'm torn between being near my family or living where I want to live and visiting my family. I don't have much of a support system here, but that's my own fault. I have friends, but you know... I miss the family.
Decisions, decisions. I'm still under lease for about 9 more months, so I have time to decide.
I locked my diary for a day or two, but it's back to normal now.
And now... I must go eat fruit salad,and it shall require all of my attention so to all I must say goodnight.
