Changes Coming.......

For the GOOD this time!

DH is taking a new job.  It could not come at a better time. A lot, lot less traveling which he is more than ready for and so am I.  This was a decission based upon his parents health and age as well as his present job taking a spiral in the wrong direction.  He seen signs and I did too that indicated things were not good for the future.  This new job found him, which is a true blessing.  We are still expecting is bonus anyday now as well as a small tax refund.  He is current on all his travel expenses and does not plan to travel anymore.

The second part of this big change is that I am retiring.  I've worked full time non-stop since I was 17 yrs. old.  As many of you know, I have health issues with my heart as well as my back and arthritis.  I'm looking forward to the first time in my life being a housewife, homemaker, gardner and the biggest role, Mimi to my grandson Gavin now 8 yrs. old. I am working a couple of more weeks just to shore up our savings. 

As far as the completion of the bankruptcy, we are still waiting on the discharge and to sign one final paper that we are not obligated for child support.  One credit union stll owes me a car title and release a lien on the tractor.  They will send that after they receive the discharge.  It's really good to have this all behind us.  I still cannot believe it's finally over....PINCH ME!

To sum it up......LIFE IS GOOD!

Norma, that's WONDERFUL new!  You TOTALLY deserve to have some time off, enjoy your family (both two legged and four legged ones), and take care of your health.

So happy for you!
