so nine months after getting laid off, the beau started working again. he is back at the same place he was at when we met 14 years ago. they have a new owner, and many improvements, so it is much better place to work. he is mostly in the cutting shop, where he cuts fabric for manufacturing boom, for oil spills. there is much work, since they are making it for the problem in the gulf. so he is working 10 hr days, 7 days a week. they rotate two shifts, one working 6 to 4, the other working 2 to midnight. whats hardest for me is when he is coming home just after midnight. i camp out on the couch with three cats and the dogs, watch a little TV and sleep some. its not the same as going to bed when he’s here. but he’s glad to be working, and im happy about it too. he will stay until the house sells and closes.
speaking of the house … i guess my realtor took me seriously, at least somewhat. she has scheduled a brokers open house for next tuesday. im a little stressed, because she will be having a lunch available to help draw in the other realtors. that means people walking around my house with food, and i wont be here to micromanage them. i will just have to clean especially good after i get home that day. *wrinkles brow* hard on the obsessive compulsions. but i will live through it.
i had really wanted to be out of oklahoma by now. the heat and humidity is really draining me. i can take it physically, and i do as i have every summer since ive lived here. it just wears on me emotionally, and mentally. i find it so unpleasant and oppressive. the beau, who was born here, even feels the same way. bleh …
but i have asked God for a buyer, and i know He has one on the way. someone who will be a good neoghbor to the people here. im so looking forward to moving!
