MN Planning

Two weeks ago I purchased an Idiot's Guide to Smart Moving book from http://www.thriftbooks.com. Jared has to sleep way before I'm ready to, so while he's resting I read my guide book and take notes to prepare for the future. I am reminded of the Lennon quote, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans,” but it's not going to stop me. I need to plan to keep my sanity.

On Sunday I read chapters one and two which suggested requesting information from our future home town. I spent Monday calling both the Minneapolis and St. Paul Chamber of Commerce as well as the Roseville Chamber of Commerce. I also called the Minnesota Tourism Office. I should be receiving several packages this month on relocation.

I'm trying to read the chapters and do what they say in order, but one woman told me it' d be a "couple of weeks" before I'd receive a relocation packet. If I don't hear word by Friday, I'm going to read a few more chapters and get going on that.

Jared hasn't told his parents yet that we're moving... and I can't remember if I told my family here in Wisconsin. I've told my cousin Rachel in Mississippi that we're planning on moving though. I think that counts in my favor in some way.

This week has been day in day out working where Jared and I are on opposite shifts. I've spent very little and am prepared to welcome debt free October into my In the Red year.
Also, I have to start paying my student loan back in November at $61.50 a month.
And, I am getting orthotics sometime in October that I will be paying on monthly as well.
But, I can say that I am very happy with all that I own and what I have been loaned. I do not want for much.

This quote is a little more insightful than Lennon's. (Although, he is my favorite Beatle.)

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
- Anatole France
