Things are settling down...

Things are finally settling down.  I'm no longer a contract worker, which is freaking awesome.  I never realized how much that was bothering me until recently.  I was told that I would have a position post 10/1 but I'm not trusting so I worried a lot more than I should have.  Even though regular employment has a "false sense of security", I wanted that...and I didn't have it until last week.  I'm permanent and I got the salary adjustment that I was looking for.  Needless to say, I'm feeling better about the job.  There's supposed to be bigger things in store for me during the next few months so I will wait and see...but not hold my breath!

Tonight, I hit the basement.  It's been several months since I have been down there.  There's a ton of boxes from our old house that need to be unpacked.  It's been two years and every time I go down there, I run back upstairs because it's way too overwhelming.  Determined to find my pumpkin patch that I know is down there, I started peeking.  I didn't run and I've come to the conclusion, that it's got to be organized and stuff needs to be either be used, donated, or tossed.  Eventually, we are going to want to finish that off so it needs to happen.  Hopefully over the next few months, we'll get it done.  I didn't find my pumpkin patch but I did find my vintage jewelry, old picture, and postcard album that I thought I lost so it was good.  The one good thing is I love the feeling of "Oh, I remember I got that....".

Went back to WW a few weeks back.  I'm doing the filling foods option and so far so good.  The meeting is smaller and everyone seems to be nice.  We'll see how it goes but I had to do something :)
