Back in action

June 1st, 2016 at 10:35 am

About 2 weeks ago DD2 spilled water on my laptop, making it completely nonfunctioning. It looked like a new laptop was in the future. Last night, though, I tried to turn it on one last time before I decided to recycle it. Lo and behold, my laptop is up and running again, good as new. Well, except for numbers 5 and 6 on the calculations pad on the right, but I can just use the standard number keys for those!

17 days left of school! That means very busy days as we wrap up the year.

The kids will be with their dad for a few weeks vacationing out west. That will give me some time to turn over my tiny rental condo, as my tenant of the last couple years is moving out at the end of the month. I always get anxious when it is time to rent out the condo again, but I've had it for nearly 5 years and done well with it. I don't think it has appreciated any but it does bring in a few hundred in positive cash flow monthly.

I will be teaching summer school again this year. I keep most of my same students, and they are only there 3 hours a day, and it is just for one month. It's pretty easy money so I don't mind doing it. I'm also starting a part-time position outside of school so that I can get experience in the private practice setting. That extra cash will go to help boost savings, I'm not sure if I will be continuing the job in the school year.

So life is good. There are some parts that are still murky (relationship)but for my own sanity I am only devoting but so much energy to that at a time. I find that it is too easy to become consumed by issues in my head, without coming up with real solutions. We are talking to a therapist now, but there are still tough decisions we have to make for ourselves. I have to deliberately choose to steer my thoughts towards other areas of importance. End of the year activities with my kids. My career. Summer plans.

I hope everyone has some fun planned in this busy month somewhere!

    Once you stop being a teenager, there is really only so much energy you can devote to your relationship; it's so important to keep other areas of your life going too. You are doing the right thing.

    Sometimes a good drying out is all it takes! My son once ran my key fob through the washer. After a couple of days, it worked again!

    We've done so much in May that I'm not sure I'm up for much in June! Although, I really could hit the beach again. Smile
