Making A Move...Maybe

It looks like we might be moving this summer...but it's not written in stone yet.  Dwayne's got a friend that he works with at HP and he moved to California.  He now needs someone to rent his house in Roswell, and Dwayne is considering it.  We will be together 7 years this August, and it looks like we might finally be moving in together.  There's a fenced in back yard for Scarlettte, which makes me very happy. 

I haven't seen the house yet myself, but Dwayne says it's pretty big.  He also said it needs some work on the inside, and although we'll be renting, the option to buy in the future is there, so there's a few things we might change.  One thing we're interested in is recessed lighting  in the livingroom.  It also has a full basement, and Dwayne said the flooring down there needs some improvement as well.  All in all, I'm hoping it works out.  My commute to work will go from 20 minutes to at least an hour, but I think the things I'll gain from the move will make it well worth it.  On the other hand, Dwayne's current hour-long commute to work will drop to about 10-15 minutes, so it's a huge bonus for him.  After driving that hour back and forth to work for 5 years now, he deserves the break.

I was scheduled to do a long walk with my friend Kim this morning, but she participated in a 10k yesterday and is now very sore....understandably!!  We re-scheduled for next Sunday, and the plan is to do a "LONG" walk each Sunday together in preparation for the Half Marathon we'll be doing together at the end of the year.  Tomorrow starts my week from hell at work, as Billie is on vacation and I'll be running the office.  Pray for me friends....it's gonna' get crazy.  After this week of overtime, the plan is to start doing my own walks on the treadmill in the fitness center here at my apartment complex.  As my dear friend Tina said, you JUST. HAVE. TO. DO. IT.  Amen sister. :)
