Limbo Land

Life as we know it is always changing. Change is something I typically do not do well though I have come a long way. The last few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster of change as MoylanMayhem has taken a whole new meaning.

We are packing up and leaving the only life we have known as a married couple. B is taking a job with the Missouri ANG very, very soon. Like, he isn’t even back from his TDY and will be leaving shortly after his return. Which means, I am the one that is really packing up and able to get things done.

I teeter between excited about the move and completely bummed and scared about leaving GTF. It is the only place we have lived in our adult lives and we have had so many milestones and events happen while we have been here. I am extremely sad about leaving behind my co-workers and a lot of my clients. Some I have been auditing for the entire 7 years and some I practically move into their offices for awhile and will truly miss seeing them every year.

Plus, selling the house!! Eek! I can tell it is already going to be an experience I am not going to enjoy. It already has me stressed and we haven’t even listed it yet.

I will also go on record and say it is really hard to plan your last days at an office when you don’t know when the last day is. It feels so weird saying this will be my last tax party, last out of town audit, last time eating at a favorite Mexican place at said audit, last, last, last….

Ultimately, I think this is a good move for our family, but at the same time I am clinging to all that I have ever known. I am scared to job hunt, house hunt, pick a new town to live in, make new friends and having to fill up with gas more than once a month.

Funnily, I can bounce from one emotion and back in a matter of minutes during the day, so that is not helping the fact that all of this is happening. It is however helping me purge things from our home without much regret. Oy Vey! On the plus side, I am actually figuring out the things we use most often and a lot of the things I am packing we could probably live without anyway.

But as they say, life goes on, and we have to adapt to overcome. All in due time I say.

A Whole Lot of Nothing

B informed me tonight that my blog was sucking as of late. I agreed. I have had several blog posts rumbling in my head, each more exciting g than the last. They have included; our yogurt journey, strawberries, grandparents and much more.  Some of those things I can't share yet, but I am guessing my posting will pick up soon.

I have mostly tried to keep the fact I am solo parenting yet again off Facebook, but since I have so few readers I can probably "speak" freely here. We are on week 3 of the latest TDY and it has probably been the hardest yet.  Mostly because we really miss B and partly because Willa is in the most awesome phase of fighting bedtime. Seriously, it is the best.

Can't remember if I mentioned that I am not doing tax returns this year. Kind of a new thing for our office since mostly everyone does both tax and audits. Typically, everyone has a chosen path but still dabbles on the other side. So far, it has been about the same as last year, except no Saturdays!

 The board I am on hosted their annual fundraiser on Saturday and it was the first time I was on the otherwise of such a big event.  I had a vision in my head how I thought my night would go and how perfect and smooth it would be.  No major hiccups but I barely got to wolf down my chocolate pasta and fought technology and small screened laptops most of the evening.  Still, it was a success and I enjoyed being apart of it.

More to come as I catch up.
