Laying it out

I feel bad not explaining why I can't blog right now. I really really want to, but there is too much going on to know where to start.

So, I thought I would break it down one thing at a time in list form because I am neurotic and crazy about lists. Some of the items may be vague but they have to be for some of my readers' sake.

1.) KW finishing up law school-This is great but it brings a bunch of complications
--a.) LAST FINALS (he will be turning into Finals KW)
--b.) Bar prep (he will be a mess with that)
--c.) moving (see below)
--d.) KW finding a job (see below)
--e.) leaving friends (see below)
--f.) leaving my job (see below)
2.) Moving -linked to 1.c.
--a.) we will have to move to Georgia for some time for KW to take the bar
--b.) KW will have to move before me and live there by himself and me here for my job (linked to 1.f.)
--c.) we will have to move a second time whether that is in Georgia, in the United States or overseas (linked to 1.d.)
--d.) I hate moving
--e.) If we move overseas, we may not be able to bring Penny with us.
3.) KW finding a job
--a.) KW is still looking for a job, but we are not worried because the jobs he wants can not be applied to early. In the legal field, some jobs can be acquired months in advance. KW's will only look at him closer to the time he can start working (ie. August)
--b.) He is VERY stressed about finding one
--c.) this economy is not relieving his stress
--d.) my parents don't relieve anyone's stress
--e.) He is being creative with his job search which could lead overseas
--f.) no matter what this job will entail me moving (2.c.), leaving friends 1.e.), and leaving my job (1.f.)
4.) Leaving Friends
--a.) I have made some amazing friends here that I will miss like crazy
--b.) It took me a long time to make these friends, which makes leaving even worse
--c.) Some of my friends seem to be acting strange lately. Not sure if it is from stress or nerves, but it rubs me badly. I want to soak up all the time I can before I leave
--d.) I am trying to figure out how to ensure seeing them in the future.
5.) Leaving my job
--a.) because my job will no longer exist after I leave it (the school is moving), I am working like crazy to get into shape for the next guy
--b.) because of the move, people who stay until the move get a retention package that includes pay vacation (that would cover KW's bar costs)
--c.) to get this package I have to stay in Ann Arbor without him (see 1.b. and 2.a)
--d.) this means I might have to stay in my apartment by myself with an aerobed and a lap top for 2-4 weeks
--e.) I have no idea when they will let me leave

There is a lot more like my brother getting married the week after KW's graduation, in that week we will have to move all of our stuff and KW to Atlanta, news about KW being moved someplace crazy for a job, and other impeding complications.

All this to say, I am barely keeping my synapses firing at the moment.

With all of the planning and this bump on my finger that is weird, I am spending a lot of my free time on Google (and WebMD).

Sorry that this list was incomprehensible and not a credit to my MPA degree...see above for excuses.

I am so sorry! Maybe the stress is manifesting in your finger growth?

The Mrs. said...

umm wow. thats a really long list. no wonder you are stressed. I guess a perk of the military is that someone else has final say on everything. (although upon reflection this is also a definite down side)

I hope you find some peace, I know thats easier said then done, but hang in there, it will all fall into place at some point.

Awwwwww, TRS, hang in there! Adventures are daunting, but they can be a whole lot of fun.

Hello there, TRS! Here's to hoping things calm down a bit over time.

Let me know if you want to grab a drink sometime or whatevs, especially as KW ramps up into super-not-fun-finals-KW.

Love, Cita

Oh my goodness...yes, you have a lot going on and a lot coming up. It's hard to not be stressful about it.

Just think of all the new adventures you can have and in the meantime, soak up what you've got.

I wish I'd been following your blog more faithfully; I might've noticed the "weird friends" part.

Love you dearly... as for my bit in the "Leaving Friends" category, I'd like to alleviate that stress a little by saying (1) I WILL make it to GA this summer (Koda in tow for KW & Penny), and (2) I think there's a girl from Texas we should co-visit at some point, wherever she may be. Oh, and there's the fact that I'll be living near Buffalo Betty soon, so boom... extra reasons to visit DC.

All the other stuff, we can hash out over junk food asap. <3
