Be careful what you wish for...

...because it just may ruin your marriage.

I am struggling folks. Bad. I am so severly homesick and DH has been being a real prick to me which is doing nothing but making me sink even further into this funk. It's so bad right now that I am longing for Albany if you can believe that. I was ready to pack Oop and Bear up last night and start heading north. I don't know if my marriage can survive this and I don't know why DH has suddenly begun acting like this. *sobs*

Aaaaannnnndddddd, we're back!

Hi everyone! I've missed you guys and seriously, I thought about all of you on a regular basis. I apologize for the confusion as to who could read my blog etc. It had nothing to do with allowing peeps to read, I just didn't know how to take it down while I was gone without deleting it completely.

This is going to be rather disjointed so I apologize in advance.

ETA: I left my job with my held high and I was definitley the bigger person. I brought Oop in on my last day and introduced her to TEE. Yup. TEE had actually given me some sound advice when Oop was little so I thought that would be the perfect way to leave. So, I know in my heart that TEE can't say ONE.NEGATIVE.THING about me thats true. And, in on the same type of subject, the neighbors kids? Taunted my movers. My moving crew was all African American; an uncle and his two nephews. The fvcking kids next door, stood out on the sidewalk and freakin' taunted them while they were moving our stuff. I was livid and wanted to call the cops and came || <---- this close but was worried that they would do something awful to the house. You have no idea how badly I wanted to scream a ridiculous amount of obscenities at their house when I drove away but I didn't. I figured it would make me feel worse to that then just walk away...

So. We're in Charlotte in our new house. We didn't hit one major snag which was unbelievable! I arrived here Thursday with the dogs. DH started his new job two weeks ago and loves it. We've already gone to a neighbor's house for a cookout with lots of wine so that was nice. We had new washer and dryer delivered along with a new 42 inch plasma hdtv and a new printer/copier/scanner thingy, all courtesy of DH's old firm.

I am busy unpacking and holy.hell. do we have A LOT of stuff. Yikes. I had no idea we had as many kitchen items as we do.

I have only talked with the good employee once. I could barely handle that. I knew my old job was toxic, I just never realized how much. I had to drive by the back of my old building to get to the U-Haul store for more boxes and I would get that familiar tightness in my chest just thinking about that jail that I worked in for 5 years. I definitely miss working to be honest with you. Miss having a purpose I guess. My purpose now is so mundane; take care of the dogs, unpacking boxes, cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping...I suppose I am not really cut out for staying at home. Basically, after everything is done with the house, I need to find a job ASAP. Although, I still haven't left the house on my own. I'm a bit wary of that. I haven't driven anywhere without the dogs in over 10 days. I knew Charlotte was huge but driving around with DH yesterday? OMG. I could get lost and not find my way back for a week! Oh and we joined a church if you can believe that. *snort*

Just wanted to touch base with all of you. I will be catching up on your blogs when I take breaks from the endless cardboard and packing paper which seems to have consumed my life. *SMOOCHES*!!!

P.S. Luna, if you and your DH are planning on coming down in October for the race at Lowe's, you are more that welcome to stay with us. :)
