So...so much has happened.

I shall give you the Cliff Notes version

  • In one weekend, Chandra & Brian got an offer on the house when it wasn't even listed and the house was in its worst conditiom ever - literally undergarments spewn on countertops and dog poo in shower

  • Week later, they signed a contract with the buyers. Cash. For both house and property. And they want to buy some of the furnishings too.

  • That weekend, C&B&co flew to Colorado and made an offer on a 80-acre ranch

  • Before all this, I was planning on taking vacation in July and going out to PA

  • When this all happened, I think booked off 2 weeks from July 11

  • Then I found out they are now moving July 10/11th.

  • I don't think I will get to see my home one last time.

  • At work, they have come out with a new roster of which I am now merchandiser. It is a lucrative position, and fun and challenging. No more dumb customer service for the most part heh.

  • Today, I started training for keyholder position!! Which means double raise because I'm also supposed to be getting my annual performance-based raise soon, which I believe will be good. :) My boss loves me and has chosen me as "key associate" for some important business conference call. It worries me a little she puts me on such a high pedestal and tells me I'm going places. Just further for me to fall and disappoint but I appreciate what this job and this new role is teaching me. Teaching me real leadership skills & help build a backbone haha

  • I am not moving out with C&B to Colorado right away like originally planned. God wants me here longer, which at first was heart-breaking. But He knows what He's doing. He sold C&B's house under amazing circumstances. I remember in September asking the pastor's wife to pray for C&B and the house to sell. I don't remember anything except that she prayed for cash buyers. I remember being at first surprised, "I never thought to pray that big... But man...it's a million dollar home. No one's going to pay cash for it." But it stuck in my head, and I told C&B and look - cash buyer for 1.5 million sale!!!

  • The boy and I are just being friends, but have kind of gone back and forth on that. Mostly my fault. Still wondering if he's boyfriend material, but we have all the time to figure that out. I just gotta stop mixing my signals and make sure my actions follow suit with my words. :/

  • I got a new client. Once I am done the work for both of my clients, I think I will start applying/looking for a part-time graphic design internship or other similar position

  • C&B&co should be visiting Toronto next weekend!!!!! Now something may come up with meeting the buyers, but goodness I pray they can still come. I miss them so much :( :( And want them to meet all my new family here :)

BTW, Kachi, we still need to do Wonderland!! Wanna do sometime in August or October? If we pick a date, I think I can get a good group of us to go :) You're so cool, I wanna show you off to my friends here lol. Second BTW, how do you like this entry plug ;) feel special? :)

O_o wow. you sound like you've been busy!

Yay for house-selling, and yay for promotions! Don't think of it as somewhere to fall from, though. Have confidence in yourself! Good luck with your designing :).
