I’m so bad at blogging. I also don’t journal nearly as much as I used to. I kind of think this is a good thing (the journaling, anyway) since it’s because I tend to use Matt as a sounding board instead of a sheet of paper, and my journals have always sort of stood in the place of actual friends. But I do need more practice writing. Also, the blogs are more for friends/family who want to keep up with my life since I’m still pretty terrible at being outgoing and talking on the phone.

Anyway. I’ve had the last two days off; I was supposed to work on Monday but we ended up being closed all day due to the snow. I was scheduled off yesterday and today but am going to have to close tonight because of some staffing issues (grrrr). It’s, surprisingly, still snowing too. So we’re going to be slow at work, I can guarantee it. People don’t like to drive in the snow, especially if it’s dark. I can understand; I sure wouldn’t be going out except that I have to work.

To change the subject, we’re going to be moving here in the next couple of weeks (FINALLY). We have high hopes of moving into a house a couple of blocks down the road from our current house, but have yet to hear back from the real estate company. It would be another rental, but we’re going to open a new savings account to save for a down payment on a house. We just don’t have enough money right now to buy a house. Matt did just open a credit card account to try to build up his credit, and mine is good but could be better. Eventually we’ll stop renting. But in the meantime, this house we’re hoping to get is brick and kind of an ugly shade of blue (why do people feel that they have to paint over brick??), but it’s growing on me. The landscaping needs lots of work. If we get it, I’ll post pictures.

I’ll try to blog more for real. I don’t have a ton to say at the moment though….

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

One thought on “Snow”

  1. I like what you said, especially in that first paragraph.

    Yeah, it’s nice to have a pretty house. But…well, what can you do? You can make the INside pretty. 🙂
