July 10, 2021 – In a funk.

I’ll be honest, I don’t feel much like writing today. If I had my druthers, I’d rather post a picture. But I cannot do that because when I initially started this blog, I made a promise to write every day for a year, a promise I’ve already managed to break. I then made a modifiedContinue reading “July 10, 2021 – In a funk.”

July 2, 2021 – Wishy washy.

Our realtor is going to kill us! My husband and I have been going back-and-forth about whether or not to sell our house. Yesterday, he told me to pull the listing. “Why don’t we give it a month and then if it doesn’t sell, we can pull it,” I suggested, “It’s only been six days.”Continue reading “July 2, 2021 – Wishy washy.”

June 28, 2021 – Reasonable Doubt

Boy, I’m not sure what’s going on with my husband but his enthusiasm to move seems to be waning rapidly. We were so gung ho at first, running around like maniacs, trying to complete a bunch of stalled projects from the past several years. And now that nearly everything is done, we are sitting inContinue reading “June 28, 2021 – Reasonable Doubt”

June 26, 2021 – In the nick of time.

Someone must be looking out for me because the timing of everything taking place couldn’t be more perfect. For the last two weeks, my husband and I have been preparing our house to get it ready to go on the market, and it officially listed today. But it’s what happened yesterday that’s much more newsworthyContinue reading “June 26, 2021 – In the nick of time.”

June 24, 2021 – All bark and no bite.

If you had told me that once we made the decision to move, that we would have our home listed in just over 2 weeks, I would have told you to get your head examined. Knowing what needed to be done in order to get it ready to put on the market, 6 months ratherContinue reading “June 24, 2021 – All bark and no bite.”

June 22, 2021 – Assemble first, read instructions later.

First of all, I’d like to make an observation. What is it about wet paint that is so enticing to winged insects? Are they all on a suicide mission or what? Just once, I’d like to paint something outside and not have to pick a bunch of dead bugs off the surface afterward. Today, IContinue reading “June 22, 2021 – Assemble first, read instructions later.”

June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye

I am not ready to say goodbye, not just yet. My husband keeps telling me to call my brother and break the news but I can’t seem to do it. The last few times we’ve communicated, he’s told me how much he’s struggling (with depression). Knowing this, I don’t feel good about dropping a bombContinue reading “June 16, 2021 – Saying Goodbye”

June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed

Let me tell you, I knew that once we made up our minds to move, the momentum would pick up, but this is ridiculous! In the last two days, I have completed more tasks around my house than I have in the last two years. Why the hurry? Oh my gosh, we had the firstContinue reading “June 14, 2021 – Moving at Warp Speed”

June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.

Well, there’s nothing like the concept of ‘moving’ to light a fire under my butt. I actually managed to ‘tick one of the boxes’ on my list today and finally got around to staining our cedar gate and fence. And that isn’t all. The one job that I have resisted tackling because it’s so vast,Continue reading “June 12, 2021 – No longer ‘on the fence’.”

June 10, 2021 – Marital Discord

Sigh. I think jumping onto this ‘moving’ train may not have been a good idea. It seems like we’ve been at each other’s throats ever since we both got on board. Whenever I get revved up about anything, he seems to put on the brakes, and vice versa. The only thing we’ve been in agreementContinue reading “June 10, 2021 – Marital Discord”
