Mrs. H

5 days short of 4 months after we got married I have FINALLY changed my name at the bank! The whole name change has been a very slow process for me. I went to the SS office on Christmas Eve, but didn’t make it to the BMV before it closed, missed it by one minute! BUMMER!! So I went back to the BMV on New Year’s Eve to get my new DL. Now the bank was a whole different story. It isn’t close to work or home, they are only open last 5 PM on Fridays. Every time I was planning to go something came up. So I finally went tonight – GO ME! Of course the lady we talked to when we added Dave to the account in October gave me wrong info. Dave has to sign the paperwork for the account, so I have to mail it in after he signs it. But they let me cash my checks so I was happy!!

I met Dave at T.G.I. Friday’s for dinner after all the bank fun and sitting in traffic. They have a buy one entrĂ©e get one free coupon going on this month so we thought since we had other errands to run in the area and it would be late when we got home to we would give it a whirl. I haven’t been there in forever and we have never been together. The food was pretty good, but temp wise was VERY hot. Which made it hard to eat and annoying, but other than that it was good.

Well we are headed off to see my parents this weekend, so I better get a packing!

A happy medium…

I would LOVE to find a Happy Medium in life. This is an ongoing issue for me. I can’t just KINDA do something I either want to go go go or do nothing. If I am involved in a group or project it is normally all of nothing. At times this is not very fulfilling for me, or causes problems in other parts of my life.

I am TRYING to find a happy medium, to not continue doing things that don’t make me happy - that I am just doing to do. This week I stepped down as Co-Chair of the Relay For Life Hilliard. I decided that is was causing me too much unhappiness and straining my relationships with others. I don’t want that to happen, as much as I love Relay - I love my friends even more. I am still going to be on the committee and help where I can. It might even end up being more work, but a change of dynamics. It was a hard decision but I do personally feel much better!

I am finding this problem when it comes to housework. I like to be all or nothing with that too. And since I know I will never get to the all point I just do not much of anything. This one I think will take a little more practice on. Since I am home more it is coming along….slowly!!! I just need to keep the thought it my head that it will eventually get to the point I want if I keep trying!!!

And I won’t even get STARTED on my “hobbies” issues. I want to do this, I want to do that. Everything I hear sounds like fun…if only we had the time, space and money for it all!! I just need to focus on a few things consistently.

I need to get back to the basics and a nice happy medium…
