I've been such an absentee lately. I've had so much going on in life that I'm not sure where most of the end of the Summer went. So, what have I been up to?
My husband and I just got through drafting and signing our will's, trust's, and health care directives. That has been a huge process. We're now waiting on the county recorder to send the re titled deed to our house back to our lawyer so we can pick up the copies we need.
A friend of ours has had a hard past few months. He lost his job, his car broke down, and he basically hadn't eaten in 3 weeks. We brought him over the Utah to fix his car for him after we got him caught up on all his bills. We're still in the process of fixing his car but we had to go buy a new transmission for it. Tomorrow we have to drive him down to Barstow, CA to pay off some traffic tickets and get updated stickers for his car. That's going to be fun.
My brother got a job which may not seem relevant but, trust me, it is. Without him jobless that means I don't have anyone to watch my dogs. What that means for me is that I get to sit at home most of the day with nothing to do but let my dogs out every couple hours to go to the bathroom. My husband went to CA on his own to pick up our friend. He, and our friend, went up to Salt Lake to pick up the new transmission and he, and our friend of course, are going to be traveling to Barstow tomorrow (without me) to deal with the DMV. What this also means for me, or should I say us, is that we can't go on any joint vacations until we find someone to watch our dogs. It's a nightmare. We can't take our dogs with us because we've got more, and bigger dogs, than almost every hotel will allow. We also don't have a travel trailer or an RV to put them in so they have to stay at home. This doesn't allow for many exciting blog posts.
I've tried to contact people for this "job" of watching my dogs while we're on vacation and for some reason people aren't willing to do it. I'm offering free rent, utilities, cable, wifi, food, and I'll be paying your phone bill PLUS giving you money just to sit at my house and watch my dogs while my husband and I go on vacations. Seriously, who wouldn't want that?
So that's what life has thrown at me in the past few months. I know it doesn't sound hectic but it really is. It's also frustrating and a little annoying. I can only sit at home so long before I go stir crazy.
