Fiddlesticks

It's Thursday AGAIN?!?!

Just gonna warn you: blogging is most likely going to be sporadic over the next...while because we're trying to move this summer and I'm not exactly sure when this is all going to settle.

This means- 

1) I am trying to keep a house in show condition.  While living in it.  With four boys.  No easy feat. At all.

2) I am on the look out for a new abode.  From three hours away.  And unable to put down any offers until this house is under contract.  This is turning out to be a nice exercise for my faith vs. my emotions, balancing tying not to fall in love with anything yet (though the good pickin's are slim) with trusting that we'll get there when we get there and everything will work out fine.  Every few days I just step away from the regularly visited websites and pretend I'm not going to look until we're under contract.

3) I am packing (not so much now) and sorting and cleaning and selling.  All while trying to do all the normal stuff of being mom to these fellas and keep up with Jonz end-of-the-school-year schedule (Field trips, art shows, elaborate science experiments, field day, etc.  And- a bike rodeo?!  Really, PTA?  The minimalist in me says field day is enough).

4) All of the above make me not want to sit down and type out a blog post.  I'll try to post with regularity.  But no promises.

Rambling aside, I am thankful for this wonderful adventure ahead for us.  We're super blessed that the housing market has recovered more than we ever hoped it would.  Crossing our fingers we can even make some money off the sale of this house, when just a few months ago we didn't think we could sell it for what we bought it for.  Hope for the present, hope for the future, and it's a lovely spring to boot. 

But I'll still miss this house, this neighborhood, and having so many awesome people close by.  So many blessings here that I am thankful for.

What are you thankful for today?

Wow, what a trip! I, for one, will certainly not fault you for skipping out on blog postings. ;)
Hang in there ~ Everything will be ok in the end...and if it's not ok, it's not the end.
