Life Right Now...

In a word? Hectic. Disorganized. Stressful. The bright side... the pain in my chest has eased some. No more uncontrollable sobbing. But still sudden, sharp longing that comes and goes. It's been a month and a half. Still four and a half months to go?

The renovations to the house have still not been wrapped up. The landlord promised to have everything done by the 31st, and as of today, everything still isn't fixed. And more problems are cropping up. My bathroom is now flooding every time water is used somewhere else in the house. The toilet will start bubbling, and then the water comes gushing out below. Fun! My mom hasn't been able to move in because the garage isn't done, and she needs to put a lot of stuff in there in order to fit. Thankfully she's been able to stay in her old place without a problem. But that means she's paying double rent. We're considering asking him to take two weeks off of the March 1st rent. Has anyone else ever asked this of their landlord, with similar circumstances? What's been your experience?

The bright side is that it's a lovely house, in a nice area, within walking distance to a job I applied for the other day (which I REALLY REALLY want, I might add - keep your fingers crossed for me ;)), with a pleasant landlord (albeit one that hires lazy, semi-competent workers).

Money is really stressing me out right now, although I do have some in the bank. I just need to get a job ASAP before any more of that money disappears.

In the most important news, I've decided to postpone taking the bar until July. The folks with my bar review course have been incredibly kind to me, and offered to let me take the course again at that time. I hope I'm in a stronger, sunnier place at that time... ready to kick some ass. :) Right now, I'm just ready to get settled and focus on making money.

Hey, that's great! I'm glad you were able to schedule the bar for July instead. Your wounds will be less tender in the summer, and you'll be able to focus better. Good luck! :)

p.s. Sorry about the toilet issues! I swear we live in the same house... Ours hasn't gotten to the "gushing" stage yet. Right now, it's just leaking. Oh boy!

Its great to hear that you are starting to heal. I know the process is long but Its for the best. These things make us so much stronger. Good luck with the job I am sure you'll get it!! Construction is always a pain but the house I am sure will be lovely once its all done.

Glad your feeling better right now honey. I'm glad you were able to postpone the bar for when you are feeling a lot better and less stressed.

I hope you get the job. Good job on postponing the bar. It will be better when you're not completely stressed out.
