These past three months we’ve celebrated a bunch of graduates, Dad, Scruffy, BIL and June’s birthdays, went to South Padre with Sissy, BIL, and Scruffy, saw Emmy couple of times, had Michelle’s baby shower, bid farewell to Michelle as she traveled to New York with her husband for residency, bid farewell to Apurva as she traveled to Pennsylvania with her family, got into a car accident, had a ton of crawfish, went to breweries, and played house with Scruffy which actually worked out pretty well.
I survived Hurricane Harvey and although we came out alive with our house still intact, I took a beating from the constant worry that we were going to flood, that our family and friends were going to flood. Our neighborhood was one of the ones that were on voluntary evacuation and we were lucky the rain stopped just enough for the flood to not reach our house. Rizzo was able to spend a big chunk of a month (three weeks) with me literally every waking moment due to this disaster but he’d have to miss me while I’m gone this upcoming Monday when I go back into the office.
Speaking of my job, I found out I will be let go from a company I’ve been with for over ten years. Bummer. But with how the oil and gas industry has been I can’t blame them. They’ve already let go so many people that I’m lucky I’ve survived as long as I have and it won’t stop even once I’m gone. I’ve been constantly job searching with no avail. I haven’t given up but I’m slowly getting frustrated.
Wish me luck!
