I’ve been so slack, not keeping up with my blog.  Naughty me.  To be honest there’s been so much going on, I’ve been spending a lot of time sleeping.  (big surprise there, I’m sure!)  All the properties are going well – nice tenants who pay on time and look after them – so they’re all okay for the moment.  My new job is great, I’m settling in really well and very happy.  I’m hoping they’ll want to extend my contract or maybe even offer permanency, so fingers crossed.  I just cannot imagine ever getting stressed doing this kind of work.  C has noticed that I’m a lot happier too, which has made him happier as a bonus side effect.

Speaking of C, he’s been called in to work tonight.  Lots of important stuff going on and they decided they HAD to have him in.  He got the call early afternoon, and I just spoke to him – he should be home in an hour or so.  That’s about seven hours of overtime.  Looks like somebody will be able to make an extra mortgage payment this week 🙂

I’m slowly reconnecting with friends.  Even though I’m tired after work, I still have more energy and inclination to see people I haven’t seen for a while, including some of my good friends from high school.  That’s been really nice so far.

I’ve had a falling out with my mother.  She rang me up and berated me for being a horrible daughter, the day after she had us over for my birthday dinner.  I didn’t know what to say (and in fact I still don’t) and when I recounted the conversation to C, he couldn’t believe it.  So I’m basically not worrying about keeping in touch.  It’s not like ‘Oh, I’m not speaking to her’, it’s just that when she gets like this anything I say makes it worse, so I’m basically just laying low and not calling or emailing her voluntarily.  Much less stressful that way.  It’ll all sort itself out eventually.
