Mid Week

Greetings and Salutations from my little corner of the world.  I hope this post finds everyone doing well. 

Last night while the DH and I were out putting up fence boards the recruiter for the position called and left me a voicemail.  Apparently the company needs to have a manager speak with me before making their decision, so I am expecting his call at any time.  Positive thoughts and fingers crossed.  The recruiter implied this was a formality.  Let's hope he is right!

We managed to get up all of the boards we bought.  We have to do it in sections because right now we just can't afford to buy all of the boards we need.  After the first section went up the rest went up quickly and easily.  The owner of the lumber yard told us if you are close to divorce NEVER attempt to put up a fence together.  I know what he means.  Luckily the DH and I worked well together on both the posts and the boards. 

I didn't work on the blanket last night and chances are I won't tonight either as we are buying another ten boards and knowing us, we will want to put them up tonight.  The goal is to get one end started and then we can take the portable panels and run them across the open section.  That way the girls can go out onto the newly fenced section with the panels blocking the unfinished section.  As we finish more boards, we can move the portable panels back to give them more room.  That's the plan anyway.  We'll see how it goes.  In theory it seems like it will work out well giving the girls room to graze and stretch a little. 

I had a text conversation with my sister yesterday.  She had spoken to my mother who was basically trying to see how much damage she could do to me.  Her plan was to call the house phone and reach the DH and give him a piece of her mind.  I guess for now she decided she won't do that.  Right now I am about 99% sure I am going to 1) get rid of our house phone and 2) change our cell phone numbers.  We don't use the house phone anyway and the cell numbers need to be changed to this location anyway.  Nothing says I have to give her the new numbers.  I know she will get mine eventually but she can stew about it for a bit.  Why does this have to be so horrible?  If I had it to do over again I would not have moved here simply to avoid being near her.  But I am stronger than that and I am not going to allow her bitterness to ruin my good life.  Not now and not ever.  I'm not going out of my way to fight with her or even stoop to her level to talk about her.  I'm just letting it all go. 

Right now I have a lot on my plate and a lot to look forward to:

1)  New job (cuz I just know they are going to make me an offer!)
2)  The fencing/pasture for the girls - our first of many!
3)  The second half of the barn will hopefully go in 2 months early
4)  The DH and I are planning a Vegas trip
5)  My son and daughter are visiting next month!

I have much to be thankful and grateful for.  Enjoy your day!


  1. You have a tone to be grateful for and I am glad you are still focusing on that during this stressful time. We can not pick our parents, we can only try to survive with the ones we have. You can do this, and you are right she doesn't have to have your number and you can live the life that makes you happy, with or without you Mom.
    Sending you positive job mojo,

  2. Thanks Meredith! Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated.

  3. I'm sorry you are going through a difficult time with your mother. I am in the same boat as you are so you have my sympathy.

    Sounds like things are going well with the fence! I am very happy for you and I'm sure the girls will be excited to get out into the new pasture.

    Praying for your new job!
