Writermom, that ping pong place is supposed to be awesome. I have not been there but a number of my friends/former co-workers have and they say it is really fun. Maybe you can do some other time? Amber, did you hear good news about your house? I have a good feeling that you will get a great offer! Virgos are supposed to have some kind of financial windfall during the month of December so fingers crossed for you!

Laura- I go to NYC this weekend, I am hoping it is not so cold! My boss's hubby was really into ping pong, I think he and Tony played like 12 games LOL! I suck at it!!!

Well I am suppose to have an offer on the house tomorrow! I am so excited I could bust!!!! the Realtor said he spoke to the other agent and they are putting together an offer for me, so hopefully if it is not ridiculous my realtor is coming at 7:00 tomorrow night to go over it!!!!

Of course this means packing ughghg!!!!! But oh well I will spend the winter packing I am so excited I cant stand it!!!

Nice Boss..

Sounds like a great brunch. Weight on fast..off fast!
Glad you like your job and boss. When you
said you were going into insurance after
summer, was a little worried for you. Sometimes
the jobs aren't what they say. Sounds like
you lucked out big time.

When you sell your house..where will you go?
Have another house in mind?

Gail..Hope your right about Virgos..all virgos. (me)

Bella- my boss is the nicest woman ever and she is one of the top agents in the US actually so she is super busy, and she never gets rattled I have never seen her lose it no matter what, LOL It is a little stressful somedays and a lot to learn, but I am so much happier with her than my old job! I miss having 5 weeks vacation and all that but no worries at least I am working and like it!

We have one house that we looked at months ago that is still for sale we need to keep Robert in the same school district, no houses have been selling so most of the ones we looked at are still for sale, I am taking a bath on my house but the homes we are looking at have dropped so much as well we are hoping we will make it back in the new house eventually! So we are only moving about 3 miles from here the house we like is so close to the schools Bobby will be going to he can walk and he could also walk to his Dad's house from there. So that is our #1 choice, and really good friends of ours live right across the street!!! So I am keeping my fingers crossed!!!!

Well the offer was OK, they want full seller's assistance so we countered at the asking price since now I am not going to have anything left over, they wanted settlement 1/18 NOT! OMG we dont even have a house to move to yet, so we said 2/28 so we will hear today the housing market here is so bad all the homes we like are in foreclosure, so we might be looking at storing our stuff while we wait for a house, that sucks, I dont know I am totally stressed out now about it all, but we will see if they accept the offer!
got my stitches looked at healing well, another week of no exercise, ughghg!

I've been hiding under a mound of shame!! The eating is bad and the exercise is just as bad!!!

I am so happy that your job is going good!! It makes it so much easier when we go to work and do something that we enjoy and with people we enjoy being around!!

Yes, I am getting ready for Chrismas! It seems that my daughter's list just keeps getting longer, but thats ok. How about you!

Have a great day!!! YAY for your trip to NYC. How far is that from you? Reason i ask is because I will be there in MARCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NYC for 4 days with 3 friends thanks to my MIL!!! LOVES HER!!!

Pretty awesome that you received an offer except that it is causing you stress

Glad that you are healing good and I'm sure your body is appreciating a rest from exercise.

Kristi- I am good, lots of craziness of late!!!

So the house offer was accepted, now we are going to night to look at the 5 houses in our price range and desired hoods, and 4 are in foreclosure! So long wait, why they call it a short sale when it takes forever I have no idea!

Cee- NYC is 3 hours away, we take the train up to avoid the traffic, my son loves riding the train and to park is so expensive, so I might have to come see you!!!!

OMG eating this week was terrible stress eating carbs you name it, plus now I am getting sick and feel like crap! Ughghg!

So tonight a busy night and then to Mom's so we can get the train there and we are going to the Broadway show of a Christmas Story I hope it is good, I think Bobby will like it!

So NYC was great it was so nice on Saturday not so cold! The show was terrific, OMG I loved it the hotel was too, I swear it was the most comfortable bed ever! A cannoli went down, LOL No pasta though!!!!! I am so so much it is not even funny!

So my house is offically sold and here the one boy I used to work with knows the guy buying my house, he posted a pic on Facebook, and he said that looks like Amber's house, LOL He used to be his football coach!

We found a house we LOVE!!! OMG and we can afford it and we both love it, so offer is being put in today after we fax everything to the loan girl and then wait and see!

Tony packed up 54 boxes this weekend, my house is a disaster area but I guess we are moving so might as well start!

Lots of good things happening now, this morning is our Christmas exchange at work! We get the gifts from our boss, and we give her gift we are taking her to a Cirque holiday show the evening of the 26th and out to dinner. No spending in NYC, I was good, except for perfume in Canal Street!

Bobby and Tony made it to the playoffs in Fantasy football so one of them has the chance to win the money! Now who do I cheer for? Bobby! LOL

So today it is will be a carb free day that is for sure!!!!!Good grief! I told my trainer to lose last week's weight thank goodness since I was away, 12 pounds in a freaking week, that is nuts!

No scratch that I am in a deep funk the realtor called there were 2 offers already on the house, good grief! We loved that house, now there is just nothing around that we like so we are up to our ears in boxes and no idea where we are going to live again! Looking at a new house tonight that is almost ready to go so might work it is in the same development as the other but it is right on the end near a busy street I think that will drive Tony nuts! The other house we liked is in short sale so wont be ready by the end of Feb and needs carpet, we looked at it last year and it was beautiful they rented it and the people trashed it, left all kinds of junk behind but that might be our back up. God I am so stressed to the max and now the house is full of boxes for Christmas, never the less we gotta get out of here, so we still need to pack, we want to get a pod or something to move the boxes into but there is no place here to park one! Ughghg!!!

Amber, take a deep breath and breathe it out slowly...
All things work together in time...
Remember when your job ended???
Look what came out of that!!!
Sure, things will be in an upheavel for a while
but that is what moving is all about!
Stop, take time to enjoy Christmas & the holidays!
Looks like Tony has things under control.
Was just thinking about you earlier & stand in awe
At how far you have come in the short time I have known you.

YOU CAN DO THIS! ONE DAY AT A TIME!
