So they last four or five days have been so crazy. Joe and I moved on Saturday. Everything went off without a hitch. We started unpacking were excited to be in our new place. There were also trips to Walmart, Target, and Costco. And we drove around a lot on the weekend, visiting my brother's friends as well. So on Monday we were excited to get going with furniture shopping (since we have none..not even a mattress). We also decided that we would make plans to look at cars, since we knew we would need a second vehicle.
Well, on our way to the furniture shop, a woman hit our truck! So Monday was a bit stressful. In fact, we did not know if the old 1992 truck our parents just gave us on Friday will be able to pass inspections. It runs fine, but one of the lights are busted. It was definitely bad luck for us as we had high hopes to use it for at least a few years. So that changed our motives and we began looking for cars. After test driving, emailing car dealers, and narrowing it down, we ended up with a vehicle that I would have never expected, a Honda Element. I personally think they are ugly looking, but they do serve a lot of our needs as outdoors people. So I conceded to my husband who was sure that was what he wanted. Then we took the plunge the next day and bought one. At least we were able to get them to bring the price down about 4,000 dollars. I think it was a good deal, but now it is one more payment for us.
Today we found out that they other lady's car insurance will be giving us some money to help with repairs, so that is promising. Plus, I also have some leads on two new positions in the county in History. And I have a lot of people networking for me, which is a good sign. Joe did some networking while he was in the office and so has his principal who I went two weeks ago. So I was feeling really good as I drove around today to drop off my resumes. Then I decided to go to the Social Security office to finally make the name change request.
While I was waiting in line at the offices, I started to black out and next thing you know, I had passed out! I fell smack on the floor and hit my chin on the tile. I am lucky nothing was broken. They called medics to check me out and everything was okay so I did not want to go to the hospital (I am not understand insurance right now....Joe just filled out the paperwork today). I feel fine right now, except for the big swollen bump on my chin! One good thing that came out of it was that I got to jump ahead in the line and get everything taken care of.
Everyday we are doing a little more to feel at home. Joe will start working tomorrow and if all goes well then I hope to be hired soon too. At this point I am playing house and trying to put everything together on a budget. In fact, I kind of like the challenge of looking for things on sale. Let's just hope that I stay well and nothing happens to me again. I have never passed out before, so I don't know what caused it, but I am thinking it was a lack of water and a hot room. So crazy!
