Whew- the time is flying by. Two weeks and nothing is changed, and everything is the same.
We are still in limbo, hoping settlement goes through next week.
We are secretly hoping it gets moved a week, so the physical act of moving is easier for the both of us (and please, don't remind me that we've known about the settlement date for two months. I know. Oh boy, do I know. Maybe someone else pretends not too?)
I know all I do is complain lately. I'm trying to find good in all of this- I really am. Except, I'm not sure what good fighting with my husband does. Or being so emotionally and physically tapped out that I could cry most days... Or missing the boys' homework, after school things, and bedtimes.
But there are good things going on... maybe not just with the house. I have helped my Mom purge the kitchen cabinets. We ended up with two boxes for the thrift store. We even have empty shelves right now!! It's easy to clean out stuff when it isn't yours, when there are no senitmental memories attached to random ashtrays that someone used to use. I am very practical in lots of ways, and getting rid of junk is one of them. When my Mom waffles, I say "give it to me!" And it goes in the circular file!
I have also had the pelasure of watching my oldest son ride in his first show- in the Walk class. Like, walk only!! It was so sweet!
So honestly, hang in there with me. Say some prayers for me, shoot me some love. I could use it. That, and a little sanity.
