Toxic people, there was nothing left for me there. I knew I was leaving, just not sure where it would be. I went back to get my things and of course ran into many of the people I rolled with, confirming my decision..... especially when two of my friends (both big business owners there) where making out at the bar with a 21 year old (his new girlfriend, they are in their 40's) and one of their Nanny's....also in her early twenties, then the girls turned to each other and began....nice (*insert sarcasm). I always refused to date all of them and did go out to bands, etc. But always kind of "watched the show". The show has gotten worse, for me anyway. To each his own, and all that but I'm so glad to be away from it all. I came to Michigan to visit a friend (now boyfriend) when I needed a break from the stress (divorce, etc) and fell in love with the area. I'm a navy brat so "home is where your stuff is", and off I went. Funny thing is, I have found more non-judgemental and extremely friendly people out here. It's a really good fit for me it seems. I have male, female and couples as friends, go out, invited to their homes, etc. It's very laid back and friendly here. And as far as work and competing, it has much more to offer me then where I used to live, from upper Ohio, to Detroit area, to Chicago, to Toronto Canada, all easy driving distance!

* wanted to do cable cross overs here, but there was no ankle cuff in sight! One of the largest gyms I have ever been in, and no cuff... so went to desk and they searched and searched to no avail. They said they would order me one though... older school training. I like the standing crossovers better due to the range of motion. I get a much better burn and like to change it up just a tad from week to week on a 3 week rotation. Hits just a little diff.
Ex flying into town tomorrow with his new girlfriend to pick up my jeep (lost it in divorce) and see the girls. I hope it all goes well for the girls sake!
Off to go work by the poolside and then back to the new house for some cleaning and dry walling. The person who was there had a ton of cats. I could barely hold my head up that eve and the following day from all the dander that must have been stirred up while cleaning. My allergies are tearing me up! Hate taking the allergy meds since they knock me right out, which kinda defeats the purpose of taking them to go actually do work in the house, lol Getting a shampooer in there, but I imagine everything will have to be ripped up. Guess whats under the carpet? Cherry wood floors, which are under a sub floor with horrid carpet or linoleum on top....... I might ask, who the freak does that???? That is insane to hide that floor!
Met two more neighbors, they are all so sweet! Everyone is offering assistance, they are so happy to see someone in the house who is going to take care of it and the yard.
Landscaper is coming in to haul away the dead trees and pull up this horrible little wire rolled rusted fence, cut down weeds and plant some native bushes. two apple trees and a pear tree, what kind I don't know, I know virtually nothing about plants except that I'm apparently really good at killing them
Next week will be even more fun! Ripping out the cabinets upstairs (which will be a bar & gaming room) and installing them in the kitchen downstairs. The one's down stairs are shot... very old, cracked and dark colored anyway. I like the really light cabinets, especially if I can get the cherry floor refinished.
Tried turning the jacuzzi over into the hole on the deck (it's upside down), just to get it out of the way. No luck, that sucker is heavy as all get out. I didn't even budge it. It may as well have been a building. So may have to bother some of the neighbors there.....of course afraid of what might be under it now, lol
