My laptop has been gathering dust on the nightstand for nearly 2 weeks now, blinking at me and wondering where I’ve gone. Why am I having so much trouble opening up and blogging right now?
Let’s face it. No one wants to read a post entitled “600 Things That Kept Me From Showering This Week.”
Right?! Yeesh. But I’m not one to get all fakey on the blog. Or at least I try not to be. I couldn’t bring myself to write about my rainbow paper pieced flowers, or a fresh new quilt top, amidst a half packed house littered with laundry, disassembled furniture, game pieces, and dried tears. I’ve been telling friends that “we’re moving!” for nearly 2 months now, and it has yet to actually occur.
We are, however, now actually, really, FINALLY (for real!) moving next month to a larger, more kid-friendly home that’s closer to family, but WHEW, what a journey. God is at work on my heart, big time. We’ve been under contract on 3 different houses, and finally have found THE ONE, but only after a whirlwind of inspection dramas, erroneous credit obstacles resulting in a Congressional inquiry that just finalized in our favor (I know!), musical mortgage brokers, endless negotiations, and on top of that, a real estate market fierce enough to bring the likes of Simon Cowell to a fit of weeping despair.
But alas, the dawn has come.
I’ll be back to share about paper piecing and scrappy rainbows tomorrow. Right now, hmmm, that shower is calling my name.
