And it’s June. Where did May go? For that matter, April seems to have disappeared too. My mom told me long ago that the older you get the faster time goes by and I guess I’ve reached that critical point because it’s flying by and I’m just getting more behind everyday.
We’ve been dealing with a nasty virus recently, it’s been many sleepless nights here mainly care of Tryg but, knock on wood, I think we are over the giant hump.
School is out until the middle of June so that’s disrupting our schedule but this summer will be full of school. Sig pre-preschool, Sig and Tryg play school and swimming lessons for Sig! It’ll be busy and it makes me more tired then I am just thinking about that but it will be fun I’m sure!
We got an unpleasant surprise last week, we have carpenter ants in our front windows. Eww and ugh don’t begin to cover my feelings on this. We’ve been treated and haven’t seen any since but the damage is done in the windows and now it’s really time to replace them. The nice part is they’re from 1988 so we knew it needed to be done soon, I just didn’t think it would be this soon. We’ve got a guy coming out tonight to take a look and get us some numbers for what it will cost to replace those 9 windows. So there’s that.
Other than all of that, it’s soccer season which means Patrick is gone (only) two nights a week this summer except the next few weeks where it’s up to four days. It’s good exercise, he enjoys it and it’s some extra money but it makes for long days for me.
I’ve also been extra busy with my transcription work. Earlier this year I was notified that my company, Avatar, based in Orlando, FL will be outsourcing their transcription department to a company named Adapt in Minnetonka, MN about 25 minutes from here. I interviewed and will be an independent contractor transcriptionist for them when Avatar is done with me. In the mean time though I’ve been asked to train Adapt how to do our work. So basically, I’m training the company my job is getting outsourced to then becoming co-workers with these folks down the road. It’s been interesting to say the least but I will still have a job that is flexible hours and work from home so I’m happy!
Life seems to be moving at break neck speed, and moments like last night when I was able to just stand and watch Sig playing by herself getting a picnic ready for us aren’t enjoyed enough. Here’s to talking a minute and living the life we’re given. Pirate princess serenades and all 🙂
