Nothing Exciting, But Here It Is...

I haven't felt much like posting lately. Probably because I don't have a whole lot to say. But, here's a bit of what's going on around here....

Mister started his new job yesterday. This is very exciting, of course. Unfortunately, it will be more long days as he is coming in to the company in the midst of many projects that need a lot of work done in a short amount of time. But, it's all good. This will give him an opportunity to prove how awesome and invaluable he is, right?

The bad news is that he had to walk away from his business partnership with outstanding debt still hanging over his head. His former business partner is wrapping up some of their projects--and once they are completed, we will know how much debt is left. My hubby has agreed to pay 50% of what is left over. Of course. And, since we don't have buckets of money laying around, he'll be making monthly payments toward the debt. So, even though he will be making more money, it won't feel like it so much, until that debt is paid off. *sigh* It seems like we're always moving one step forward and 50 steps back. Ya know?

Potential good news: Apparently, some other company is interested in buying one of the products that my husband and his business partner were developing. This is a BIG IF...but...if they look at it and decide to buy it, it MIGHT be enough to pay off the outstanding debt. This of course, would be a major answer to prayer. So, send up a prayer for us, will ya? Thanks.

Other than that it's pretty boring stuff around here. For some reason I seem to have wicked allergies this year, and I'm walking around in a nose-drippy, throat-scratchy fog 90% of the time, so I'm feeling neither productive or creative. I managed to finally get all of my tax stuff off to our CPA which is a big relief. I'm keeping my fingers crossed big time that I don't owe anything. Yeesh. But, it's good to have the monkey off my back. It took me forever to get all that sh%t together. Not fun. (Ah, the glamorous side of running your own business--blecch.)

See--nothing exciting, or creative from me right now. Sorry.

Thanks to everyone who sent me your sweet, loving, supportive comments last week. It meant so much. You guys are the best. I just wish we could all get together right here in my living room in real life and eat chocolate and drink wine. Wanna? I did finally talk to T., and everything is fine. Her baby came early, but all is well. She has just been (understandably) preoccupied and has taken a while to get back to me.

Wow - that would be a HUGE break for your hubby if that came through. Yes, definitely we'll pray with you about that! c",)

I'm glad your hubby will get to show off his amazing skills. I'm sending up a prayer right now for that company to pick up the product.

I wish we could all get together too. How much fun we would all have bitching, laughing, and crying together.

Oh hell yeah...I will bring the wine!!!!!!
I will definitely be keeping my fingers crossed that things work out moneywise! There aren't many things more stressful than money woes.
