Long Time Coming

It's been over a year since I blogged. A whole year!

A lot has happened in this past year. So much, and in ways, so little. It's been hard to blog about it, because sometimes I just don't want to put things out there, you know?

Putting things out into the big world can make you feel vulnerable.

So, in a nutshell... we looked and looked and looked at houses. After a while, it wasn't fun. It was tedious. It was a power struggle. So, we went to Plan B- begrudgingly- and rented a house. I say begrudgingly, because most people have the attitude that renting is "throwing away money" because you are not building equity. But, and a big BUT, it does buy time. And relief.

So, we are caring for a house that isn't ours.
Mowing a lawn that isn't ours.
Painting rooms that aren't ours.

Well, not ours in the long run, but ours for now. And that's enough for me.

It's been a long time comin', my dear
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here
And now it's here
