Put Your Hands Up!


I'm not gonna lie to you folks. These past six weeks have been a giant emotional rollercoaster. So many things have happened that I want to share my thoughts about, and I do plan to go back and write a few posts that I will just post-date for my own sanity. But to give a brief overview...

  • A interviewed for a promotion in Tampa, FL.
  • We rescued a little kitty we named Oliver.
  • The Steelers won the first game of the season without Ben.
  • I can't sleep.
  • A got the job in Tampa.
  • We found out Oliver was a lady cat.
  • We found out our house was worth $10.
  • The Steelers lost their second starting quaterback. Still won game 2.
  • A was offered $3 more in salary per year to move.
  • A got an interview with a new company.
  • I can't sleep.
  • We survived the Cat Crisis of 2010.
  • I cry myself to sleep.
  • The Steelers won game 3.
  • A turned down the promotion.
  • A flew to New Hampshire on a day's notice to meet with new company.
  • New company offered him job.
  • A accepts job with new company, 10 days after first intervew.
  • We have a giant party at our house with over a dozen out of town guests to celebrate A's big birthday.
  • I wake up sick as a dog with a sore throat that I attempt to tame with frequent sips of Apple Cider Vinegar (which works but OMG almost makes you throw up).
  • ON A's actual birthday, he accidentally shuts Compass' tail in our front door.
  • While at the vet on his birthday, A gets a call that his Gramma had passed away.
  • We pack up 2 cats, 1 dog and a week's worth of shiz-nitz and head to Pittsburgh.
  • I can't sleep.
  • We spend an emotional week with A's family saying goodbye to Gram.
  • A comes down with my illness.
  • We drive back across the turnpike and arrive home at midnight on Saturday.
  • Praise the Lord, at least the Steelers have a BYE week so we can lie in bed and recover. Although I sleep most of the day Sunday, you guessed it - by Sunday night - I can't sleep.
Seriously folks. That is pretty much more excitement crammed into 6 weeks than we sometimes have all year. And while there is a lot of good news sprinkled in there (NEW JOB - did you see that?!?!) I am honestly just ready for a bit of an emotional break.
There are a few things that I've still got bumping around in my head and I'm looking forward to typing them out in the next few days.

But yeah. Whew. Whoa.
