Today is Tuesday, May 4, 2010. Woke to pouring rain yesterday. It was cooler, but not cold.
George got all of his paper work done and his UA. Called the company back to let them know that it had been faxed to them, they gave him a start date of MONDAY! So we are heading home Saturday morning? Oh, no we will be outta here Friday, he informed me. In a hurry to get home are you? I just thought we could get up early on Saturday and leave then, I'll be fine, he said.
There are three or four of them that used to work together in Lake City, that will now be working together in Jacksonville. He has been sitting for eight hours a day doing nothing but waiting on QC's. When he called me at eight yesterday morning, he informed me he had had enough. George is a doer and doesn't sit well, so for him to sit and do nothing for eight hours is just pure torture.
The boys are really excited about going home. Young son informed me he wants dad to put a diving board on our pool, good luck with that one. Son #5 is going nuts not driving and listening to all of that bass they play. And of course their friends, good thing for me that they have their friends on the "friends" list with Verizon, or I would have to auction them off on e-bay to pay their bill.
As for me, I have learned a lot. My four bedroom, 2 bath, one which the boys do not use, is a beautiful place to be. My kitchen didn't use to have near enough counter space, however it does now. No more dryers for me, my clothes line is my friend. And Doc running around chasing the birds and squirrels without a chain, free to run, barking when someone is coming up to the gates will be such a welcome sight. I doubt he will ever step foot in this RV again.
Thinking back on all of this, when it all first started seven months ago, there are things that we do not know. We tried for months to get a house here, tried to even buy, but nothing was happening. If we had rented and signed a lease, we would have six months of rent to pay on a house. If we had bought a house we would have another mortgage to pay. We just had to go through this. It has shown us how blessed that we really are and made us all a stronger family unit. Even the boys now know how great their privacy is at home, they have missed that, but then I have too.
So Friday afternoon or early evening, we will head home, where our hearts are.
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today.~Brightest Blessings~
