Month: March 2015

The Journey to the Enchanted Forest

We are all in various stages of this respiratory infection. It’s been a terrible sickness in which we’ve had nightmares, periods of chills and sweats, terrible deep coughs, loss of voice, lethargy, and other symptoms. After a month, EJ is mostly healthy, although he…

Offer

I am beginning my second week of being sick with the nasty respiratory infection that EJ gave me. He was sick with it for at least two weeks, so I kind of expect the same. I am very congested, swimmy-headed, and tired, and I…

There’s No Place Like Home

JJ and my packing came to an abrupt stop until the middle of last week when I got sick. I think I probably caught EJ’s respiratory infection when he came home the weekend before. I think catching his infection was a small price to…

The Enchanted Forest

EJ came home for the weekend. He got home from on Saturday afternoon and left on Sunday afternoon. It was so wonderful to see him! We went to the store together and EJ encountered a couple of his former co-workers. The joy on his…

Possibilities

We are making good progress packing up the house. All the rooms, closets, and drawers are nearly empty except for the kitchen and bathroom. I am leaving those for last. After that I will have to work on the back porch and basement. I’m…

The Saga Continues

The saga of our move continues… I’ve been spending my days packing. I’m trying to get everything packed as soon as possible so we will be ready to move as soon as EJ finds us a house. Upstairs we have the library all packed,…

Separation

This morning my dear hubby drove off to the Emerald City. I missed him before he even left and I teared up as he drove away. Except for a few days when he was off hunting, we have never been apart. I really miss…

Busy

We have been very, very busy. Yesterday morning EJ and I drove to the city to buy him new machinist tools. Machinists always have their own tools. I felt as if we were buy him supplies for the first day of school. On the…

The (Im)possible Dream

We have had very cold days for the last month or so. Occasionally we’d have a slightly warmer day and the snow would melt just enough to make everything slippery when the temperatures dropped again. A couple of times we had freezing rain or…

A Tale of Two Stories

This morning EJ and I finalized financial matters so we have money for the move to the Emerald City. EJ also selected a motel and reserved a room for next week when he begins his new job. He is going without us because it…

Those Who Go Down To The Sea In Ships

Yesterday the occupational doctor put a restriction in her report that EJ could only lift 30 lbs. It was so frustrating that she could have trapped him at a job that was definitely affecting his health while blocking him from a physically easier job….

The Next Cliffhanger Installment

Since EJ was scheduled to begin work on March 9th, which is next Monday, we working really hard on the house this weekend. I painted the ceiling and stained some doors, while EJ working on hanging more drywall. Saturday we worked until about midnight…
