For all of those who have heard me bemoaning the pending sale at work, I am happy to report that the sale is now final. Now, we can finally get some answers. Sure, there is the chance of being let go or having to relocate, but at least we can move forward. Anything is better than the black hole that was the lack of information over the past few months.
We couldn’t call ourselves Wisconsin fans without heading to Indianapolis last night to cheer them on for the Big Ten Championship. We took the kids for their first college football game ever; good choice, eh? The game was an absolute blast. We lost our voices and got back to the house closer to dawn than midnight, but it was well worth every minute. The kids made signs, danced along with the Wisconsin Marching Band, cheered and screamed almost as loud as Jim and me, and were thoroughly impressed. The fact that the Badgers are now on their way to the Rose Bowl game made it even better!
My Mexico Trip is done and gone. It was definitely an experience. For the near future, I am going to relish being back home.

After the craziness of the holiday weekend, this past week, and then last night, we all need to take it easy today. Everyone is still struggling with being sick too, making rest even more important. Have a great Sunday, everyone. Happy reading!
Thanks, Amy! We shall see what happens.
Glad to hear the game went well (and you made it! hah). I hope you find out good answers soon!
My recent post Review: The Hairdresser of Harare by Tendai Huchu
We figure either way, next year will be the year of changes. Things always have worked out for the best, but where we'll end up is anyone's guess!
Thanks, Jenny! The not-knowing is so awful. People are still nervous, so work is still not wonderful but we are moving in the right direction.
My husband went through that kind of painful limbo at his work last year. We were on pins and needles waiting to find out just what would happen. Fortunately, it ended up working out OK for us. I wish the same for you.

Glad you all had a wonderful weekend and hopefully you can get some answers at work now too. It's the not knowing that makes it so difficult. Been there myself. Hope this week is better for you 🙂

Thanks, Natasha! It should be a few more weeks before they start stirring up the dust in earnest, but I'll take that over sitting in a holding pattern for another month.
I hope you're enjoying your day. Fingers crossed that you'll get some information about work real soon. Have a great week.
