I spent last summer agonizing over finding a new job and what I would possibly do if come September, I didn't have a job. I spent the summer trying to enjoy our new home, while also trying not to think about losing it.
I spent a lot of the summer feeling anxious and unable to relax. In addition to dreading meeting with my boss, I worried constantly about finding a job and paying bills.
To distract myself, I painted our kitchen, living room, sun room, and bedroom. I unpacked. I tried to make this house feel more like a home.
And in September, we got Bronx. Being home allowed me to train him and spend the important first few months with him.
You might remember that I totally believe that everything happens for a reason. As tough as last summer was, I know that I needed to go through it and that actually, it ended up being perfect timing. I had the time to take care of our home, I had time to give Bronx exactly what he needed as a puppy. And none of this would have been possible if I hadn't had to go through that tough summer.
Sitting here one year later, I know that I'm lucky to have come through last summer with such little damage. We still own our home. Bronx is a well-adjusted little peanut. LoLo and I are stronger than ever.
I said it once and I'll say it again... everything happens for a reason.
You have a beautiful home. You should be so proud to have made it through such a tough time. I'm definitely proud of you! I hope this summer is ten times better!
I know how you feel, my friend. Buying a house is always a risk, and when a spouse loses a job it's especially scary. I'm so glad that it all worked out for you & you see how it worked for the good!
This is a great lesson for me today.
That’s totally my motto.. anything and everything happens for a reason. Most of the time its something that was meant to make us the strong woman we are today!
Wow that boss of yours sounds like a real charmer ( angry face) I cant imagine how hard it would be to be so excited about your new home and so nervous about your job situation. But it all worked out.. and your house looks beautiful!!!
