This morning one of my co-workers took me to get my rental car. I got a brand new Ford Focus. It's so new that there was only 50 miles on it when I got in it. It's a cute little car, but I really do miss my Honda. :( There is part of me that really hopes they just total it because I know if they fix it I could still have problems, but it's hard because I really loved the car. I left a message for the adjuster today to see if he had heard anything about my car. I am anxious to get my belongings out of the car.

My day at work was good. I do so much walking at my job and I really noticed how sore I am. I called and got a claim # so I can now go to the doctor and have an appointment tomorrow at 9am. Today I was standing talking to one of my techs and all of a sudden I got a horrible back spasm. I have never had one before and it literally took my breathe away. Last night I woke up at 3am and had spams in my legs and had trouble getting back to sleep.

I turned in my official notice at work and my last day will be March 12. I started telling my techs, which has been very hard. Most of them have been shocked and very upset. There are a lot of changes going on at work and I know my timing is really bad, but this is an opportunity I can't pass up.

I called about this house today:
It's still for rent, so I sent off my application and hopefully it will soon become my home. I already feel like it's my home and I am already thinking of ways I want to decorate the inside and of course the outside during the holidays. :)

Tonight I stopped and gave notice of my apartment as well. So...it's all official now. There is a lot to do between now and mid-March, but I feel so good about all of it. And with all the stuff I am selling I won't have as much to move.

I may have a lot less "stuff", but life is still really good.

I realized why I didn't see this post last night. I saw on facebook that you were very tired at (?) 7 PM, and I don't think I looked, thinking you didn't post here. Anyway, I'm glad things a relatively good now. All this stuff with the wreck in the middle of the good part of your life is inconvenient, but you'll make it work, I know! Don't over do!!
