I have been ignoring you…. could you tell? Don’t take it personal, it’s for a good reason I swear!
With my dentist man being home, it’s been a whirl-wind of activities. Visiting friends and family all last week. This weekend “that house” is getting its final touches, we went out to the “dry side” and checked out a few homes and the place he’ll be practicing.
And what a perfect week to do it too – it’s been gorgeous! I mean really – it’s never like this? Nearly 90* in May? Sorry mid-west, we stole your sunshine. We’ll give it back, I promise… maybe.
We left the oldest two home, since they have a life and all. I felt like I was forgetting something the whole time? But the younger two enjoyed their time “alone”.
It’s a very strange feeling to be looking for what’s supposed to be your final home? It just seems so…. final? I’m so not used to this concept and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. How do you look around a town and think “Yup, these are the same faces I want to see for the next 60 years”?
To relieve some of my anxiety we are getting land though. My time with neighbor’s is done! I know, that seems a bit harsh, but let’s admit here and now that we haven’t had the best track record the last few years them? Not to mention, it saves my neighbors from having to deal with me!
While it’s not my first choice of places to live, it is dry – dry is the key word here. I can’t take anymore rain and the “dry side” has four distinct season. I do love a good reason to knit and snow does that for you! And I’ll be the first one to admit that I’ve thought I wouldn’t like a place before and changed my mind, so please don’t take my hesitation as complaint, it’s merely caution before a new situation. After this year, I would rather have familiarity than excitement and adventure, but adventure is what I’ll get none-the-less!
Life is like that.
We’re moving again, but this time on to a new kind of adventure.
