I'm still here but I've had internet connection problems lately and it sucks! Right now we have AT&T wireless internet and I think that we're going to switch when our contract is up in December. Not so happy with our internet connection. Maybe if we didn't live in the booneys it would be a little bit easier.
We are pretty sure that we're going to build our house. We met with the builders this week and things went pretty well. We will try to keep it around $220,000. And our start date will be around mid June (hopefully) if all things go as planned. Wow! I can't believe that its finally happening. We have so many decisions to make and I don't want to fall in the trap of "We have to have this because its going to be our house!" We still need to be very cognizant of our budget. I will keep us to our budget!
Work is super busy and it was kind of a stressful week for me. Y had an appendectomy yesterday which was a surprise of course. (I'm pretty sure that an appendectomy is always a surprise.) Luckily, he went in before his appendix burst. People, please listen to your bodies! If you need to go in, just go in and get checked out. I felt like a bad wife because I was worried about work stuff when Y was in the hospital. Job stress! Usually I don't really mind but its hard when I have a couple closings going on and I'm completely not able to work. I think that I need a smart phone because of work. Yes, that is a need. I think it would pay for itself so I could work when I'm not at work.
So, how do you balance work stress and family? Any tips?
