Bit the Binuch

I forgot how helpful it is to blog/journal!!! Something about putting your thoughts into words makes it tangible and easier to deal with.  The bonus with blogging is getting feedback.  Thank you Karla for reaching out! You too ES. You both really helped me to put things into perspective.

So, yesterday I was packing boxes and all of a sudden there wasn't a picture on the TV. Just sound.  I feared it was the TV but I was still hopeful. The TV is only a few years old and its a Samsung which I have had good luck with. Well, after almost 40 minutes trouble shooting with DIRECTV, it was the TV. I was bummed. I made due by watching Storage Wars on my Laptop. I was half tempted to go shopping for a new one but of all days, I wasn't in the mood for crowds and chaos.

This morning I got up and went to Target at 8:00 a.m. I like shopping at that time of the day. No one is really there and the shelves are freshly stocked.   The first store did not have what I wanted nor did they have my second choice. I decided to go to the next closest store and they did not have it either. Grrrrrr... To make a long story shorter, the sales associate took pity on me and sold me a 49" Philips HD for $400! It retails for $579. That absolutely made my day! Woot Woot!

Instead of focusing on the sad part of this move and the negative stuff, I opted to put the energy into doing productive things. Not only did I bring in, assemble and program the TV, I also put a kennel together that I bought for Bogey for the road. It took some patience let me tell you! I am proud of myself! Only 5 more days and I am on my way HOME!


P.S. Bit the binuch = no longer works


  1. I think you will enjoy a fresh start. When you settle in, make sure you meet your neighbors!

  2. Try and look forward to new things and new traditions when you get settled in your new place :) Emily. x

  3. "Putting the energy into PRODUCTIVE things".... that is worth remembering!

  4. I am so excited for you with this whole change! I know I don't comment much (because, you know, I suck at commenting) ... but I have been reading right along and cheering you on at least in my head ;)

  5. Wow! You are a hell of a woman!! I had a move about a year and a half ago and it has been a mixed bag. One thing I know though, when I leave and go back home, I will truly miss some of the perks. I think there is good and bad everywhere and your can do, positive attitude will certainly be help as you travel a new path!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
