I Gotta Go Get The Kid

Good morning. I only had to work a half day today. Thank goodness. I am going to pick up the kid today from the grandparents' house. I really miss him.

Yes, I got the job I wanted. This will mean a move sometime in July. We will live in an apartment for the first year we are there. After a year, we will look at buying a new house. We do have to sell the house we are in. It shouldn't be too hard. It's not a new house, so it should sell well under $100,000. The kid is going with me, but the dad is putting up a major fight. I will have to work with the legal system. Shouldn't be a problem. He will be able to visit his dad anytime he wants.

I am getting extremely excited, however, I have not really told any of my co-workers. My departments do not know either. I think everyone will start finding out this week. This sucks because I need to concentrate on getting a store grand opening ready and I definitely don't need the extra drama.

As we get closer to moving, I am sure blogging will not be a priority. So there's your warning if the posts start getting sparse. I apologize now.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I gotta go get the kid...

How far will you be from where you're live now? How does the kid feel about living in a different state than his father? I'm imagining he's OK with it.

Don't lose total touch, OK?

Don't you have a significant other? Will he be going with you? How does the kiddo feel about moving?

I was thinking abt your man and whether he'd be ok with the move. It cant be too easy for the kid either, he will be away from his friends and grandparents.

I can see all your bubbling excitement from all this far away.

Yes, Cinnci, here you go!

Given some time hopefully all will work out for the better. By the way, unless you really like it that way, maybe you could give "the Kid" a blog alias to refer to him as. Is he "Billy the Kid", ha,ha,ha! Just teasin' He's your squirt, call'em whatever you want too. :)
