I don't know if anyone is still interested in reading my blog (other than Jackie & Theresa 😊 Thank you for checking on me ladies).
I apologise for my lack of posts. Why have I been MIA for so long? DH & I decided to split. As in, we got divorced. I'm not going into details, but it took a huge toll on me, especially my health. Thankfully, my family have been very supportive, despite living on another continent. I don't know what I would've done without their love & support and that of my BFF (who lives nearby).
I'm currently house hunting (I should say I've been house hunting for months), since DH got the house (MI law). Not an easy task. Housing prices are still through the roof here, since there's a housing shortage in our state. So houses are snapped up fast. A house I was interested in, sold just earlier today. I'm so bummed. This happens half the time. There's still another one, so I'm hoping to go look at it soonest. I've looked for new furniture and delivery dates are 6-8 weeks. WTH?!! I want to have my furniture available when I move into my house. How am I supposed to function without furniture? However, I can't order furniture until I purchase a house. Just another stumbling block. Sigh. I hate stumbling blocks. I'm a smooth sailing kinda girl. I just want to buy my house, decorate it, get a Christmas tree & decorations, bake holiday cookies & be merry. A girl can dream or hope :) I like that hope word better. I've already been working on Christmas surprises. See, I don't allow stumbling blocks to keep me from putting smiles on people's faces over the holidays. I love the Christmas holidays. It's my favorite time of the year.
I really just have a lot on my plate right now. There's just so much to do and I'm doing everything by myself. No family here and only one close friend who keeps helping me whenever she gets a chance. I still need to contact an estate lawyer too. My former colleague/friend who is a partner at one of the big 5 accounting firms, has been helping me, but he's on another continent. I have all but forgotten that the company deals with estates too. Duh! Probably, because I haven't worked there in decades. So while I was laying on the beach this summer, I was talking to my friend about getting a trust set up for DS (see, I'm always the planner...lol). We haven't seen each other in almost 30 years and go without chatting for years, but whenever I need financial advice or service, I contact him because I know that he's going to get it done ASAP and I'm going to get top notch service. We're alike in that regard (we worked closely together years ago), so we understand each other. However, I need to find a local attorney to get that done too. I sure as heck cannot afford to do it through the accounting firm's offices here, because I know they charge mega bucks!!!
So that's my life in a nutshell right now. I'm just asking for prayer please. That everything that I still have to deal with, will go smoothly. This too shall pass. I'll try to blog when I get a spare moment. I do have some posts to share, but just not the time to do it. I do still read some of your blogs on occasion.
I hope everyone stays safe & healthy.
