** I am sitting here, watching my beloved Orioles lose miserably to the stupid Yankees!!!! I hate the Yankees!! So I’m yelling at the players like they can actually hear me, but it’s only because I am so passionate and I know my boys are capable of far better than what we’ve been since Thursday! Come on Orioles, let’s get back in the grove!!
The past couple of weeks have been insanely stressful. I spoke about the weirdness happening in the office, now I’ve just been consumed with busy work. Numerous reports are due as we come to the end of the first quarter for the year, this coming week is the last week for VITA, and I’m getting ready to take a mini vacation so I’m trying to get everything completed or at the very least, ready to review before submission, so I don’t have so much to work on when I come back from my much needed time off.
Neil and I have been spending the past couple of weekends Spring cleaning, and we’re still not finished. We are going through everything though, closets, the guest room, etc… I’ve been holding onto items that once belonged to my mother that I don’t need or can’t use, but I wasn’t ready to part with them, because that truly means accepting her death, and at the time I went through all of her stuff, I just wasn’t ready, so now I need to part with some of it. I have been throwing A LOT away, not all of it hers. How do two people accumulate so much crap in 8 years time??
It also needs done because the inspector for the special loan we applied for is to come out sometime this month. We are hoping that he will take into account all of the problems our current house has and deem us worthy of a new one. In which case they will pay off what we still owe on our mortgage and lump it into the special loan cost of building a new house. This is our ideal option, so please, send us prayers, good thoughts, and positive vibes that this happens! It would be a HUGE blessing!
Neil created a floor plan of how we would like our new house to look, and I’m so excited and have fallen in love with it, so if this loan doesn’t go through, I’m going to be rather bummed. Plus, this house is getting unsafe for us to live in, so it’s not just a want, we really do NEED a new home.
So aside from all of the house and work stressors consuming our lives lately, we have also been talking about starting a podcast. We have been toying with the idea for a while, but we just recently decided that we’re going to go for it!! Neil has really been doing a lot of research on the type of equipment we need, what kinds of licenses we need to use music, etc…
It also helps that we have a friend, Jordan who co-hosts a podcast called “Random Ramblin.” with his friend, Eric. I recommend you guys give them a listen.
Anyway, Neil and I are hoping to start our podcast in a month or two! We have some of the equipment we need to get started, but we still need a few things, and as you know, we have a lot going on right now, but we are both really excited about this.
We are open to suggestions for topics. We’ve been throwing around some ideas, but we can use all the help we can get. Have you ever wished more podcasts would discuss certain topics? If you know either of us, is there anything you would like to hear our perspectives on? Drop them in the comments below, and we will be doing interviews from time to time, so who knows, maybe one of you could make it on the podcast someday!
Love & life lessons,
