This and That Thursday

I am still here. I have been busy trying to find a place in the school district where my daughter needs to be next year. Things aren't looking good for the district that she goes to now and open enrollment will probably be really high where I want her to go...so my best bet? Move into the district.

So last weekend the girls and I drove around to look at some places. We found one that we liked and called about it. We drove by it, took a picture of it, set up an appointment to see it. I got a call the next day that it had been rented. Bummed because from what I had seen so far, I liked it.

So Wednesday I get a call that it fell through and it is available. So we set an appointment to meet the owner at 530pm. Get there a little early pull up in the driveway, wait, wait, wait...it is now 540pm so I call the owners house to see if i had gotten the days mixed up, she said no that he had headed over there that he was in PT Cruiser...i saw a PT Cruiser go by....guess what???? Yep, we were at the wrong house....sitting in someone else's driveway....took pics of someone else's house......"liked" someone else's house!! So we trek on down around the corner to the 'real' house.

At first I was thinking to myself....but I like the other one better.....BUT....once we got in there....I love it! It is so unique and has such character I can't even begin to describe it to you...don't worry, I won't bore you with that...you will have to wait for pictures....of the RIGHT house this time!! lol

***********
John went to the VA on Tuesday. Was there all day long...hurry up and wait all day. He had his blood work done which revealed that there has been some liver damage already...so all the more reason to go through this rehab. He leaves on Thursday January 29 to go to the rehab. His attitude is still great, still has not had a drink in 9 days today. He is looking forward to going to thru the program, getting out getting a job....and his license and getting on with life....sober!! So far he hasn't let me down!!
Things appear to be looking up for us right now...i/ we feel good, we are staying positive about John, my kids are happy, I am happy....life is good right now!!

Good! I hope everything keeps looking up for you and that this house works out!!!

I was going to say too that I when I read your blog at work and at home its hard to read.....the text isn't in the middle of the screen. Weird that it looks different for different people, huh?

Propane Amy said...

First, I hope it all works out for you. Stay positive. It's going to be a rough road where John is considered. But you both sound committed and that's a GREAT start!!!

Second, I see your blog just fine. Right down the middle of the screen.
