    I finished my last day of work at the old job and am working on moving. I have had a moving sale this last weekend and made over $800. I need another $400-600 to ship my antiques to Ohio. I am hoping my second moving sale will do it. I sold quite a few items of glassware. 4 dish sets, art , furniture. I didn't have all of my antiques out as I am still going thru it to find out what to save and what to sell or donate. I have a few days to get it organized to hopefully sell more. I am hoping to ...

    My update for the move up to Northern CA. I start work on the 10th of August. That gives me a week I am trying to work around the house, but it is so hot. We also had a problem with the fuel pump on the Jeep. The AAA tow guy helped us out by telling us to hit the fuel pump with a hammer while starting it. To loosen a bead that floats on the top of the fuel pump. That saved us a tow. We were able to drive it to the garage. I tipped the guy. He could have just towed us. Earlier yesterday morning I ...

    Well I enjoyed my family reunion in Ohio. It was beautiful(so green) a week wasn't enough. The new job is starting Aug. 2 around Sacramento and I finish work on July 30th. So no days off and I have tons to do. I am preparing for the move. The pay I am looking forward to, but not the stress of taking over a big project. I am also looking forward to debt pay down. I feel like I should buy a lottery ticket. I was sent a letter that I am a possible donor match for bone marrow. I have been on the list ...

    Well I have been busy. I put in my notice to quit my job as of the end of July. I haven't told my employees yet. I will after I get back from Ohio. I gave a 6week notice as I had already scheduled 2 weeks vacation. I have been cleaning my desk out anyway. I am partially done. It is a little scary but I am, glad I made up my mind to go. I will take a traveling position if I must, but I have a great paying option that will hopefully be coming in 1-3 months up around Sacramento. So I may be moving ...
