Things are looking up around Casa Singer. I'm feeling much better (thanks to all who expressed their concern!) and am back in the saddle, so to speak. I'm in the middle at my first 5 day work week all month ... Since the last week of July I have taken either the Friday or the Monday off each week to make a series of long weekends throughout August. First for our trip to Quebec, then for my birthday, then for the concert last weekend ... add to that my sick days last week and I'm not sure I can work five whole days in a row! Yes, yes, somebody call the waaaaaaahmbulance. If that's the worst thing I can find to complain about, I'm doing pretty well, no? (Especially since this upcoming weekend is a long weekend as well.)
And yes, it is true, my life is particularly full of blessings right now. I am most grateful, and trying very hard every day not to take them for granted.
Unfortunately, that makes for some pretty boring blog entries. Just don't have a lot to report, and simply gushing about how wonderful my life is gets pretty tiresome (for readers, at least! :-). We are tightening up arrangements on our new apartment, which is very exciting. We're hoping to have a lease signed by the end of the week just to make it official (and have something in writing!), but unofficially everything is a go. As excited as I am both about the new apartment and about taking this next step with Serdic, I have to admit to feeling slightly overwhelmed by everything that has to be done between now and then. I am not a fan of packing, or cleaning, or hauling heavy things around, and there's going to be a hell of a lot of all three over the next six or so weeks. Sigh. It's a good thing the end result is going to be building a home with my love. I'm trying to focus on that and not the four years' worth of crap I have to clean out of my old apartment.
I've got some fun things to look forward to in the next couple of months besides the move ... a mini getaway with Serdic, a family trip to Pennsylvania, both choirs starting up again, an opportunity to humiliate myself weekly when we take up curling, Thanksgiving (always great family time) and so forth. Yeah, life is good at Casa Singer these days. Soon to be Casa Double S.
