Don’t you just love it when things are in order like today’s date, 8/9/10. This kind of thing happens frequently. I always stop and think and ponder what is happening in my life at the present time and what has happened in the past.
I am at a crossroads in my life right now, trying to decide which path to take. I made a life altering decision in mid March to sell my house and move closer to family. I woke up one morning in March with one thought on my mind. I picked up the phone book and called a realtor. Believe me when I say that those guys don’t waste any time.
Before the day was done the realtor was knocking on my door and taking pictures of my house, inside and out. There were still some of those dreaded beans on the ground because the winter of 2009 – 2010 was extremely cold and snowy. My house was shown the next day. On the 5th day after the second showing my house was sold before the for sale sign was ever posted in front of my house.
Thus began the trooping in of the new buyers and every relative under the sun. To say I was a nervous wreck was putting it mildly. I was having trouble eating and sleeping. This dropping in and my showing of the house and garage to one and all didn’t end until the closing date April 15th. By that time I had lost almost 20 lbs which I have never gained back. I did all of my own packing and my friend Sandi and her husband were able to get me all of the boxes I needed. I moved several loads in my car and Sandi’s husband moved some in his truck. On April 16th Allied Van Lines moved the rest charging me a hefty fee.
This is a public thank you to Rex and Sandi for the help they gave me moving and to my neighbor Jo, and to Annie and Bill who all cried when I left. Thank you for all of the good memories.
Back to the crossroad thing again. I need something to occupy my time so I am working on that. I am enjoying spending time with my family but the days are still lonely. My son in law jokingly tells my daughter that mama needs a male friend. That would be nice, but not important. I am waiting for my sister’s visit next month. My brother and sis in law and my son will all visit sometime during the week Rae is here so I will be able to get input from ones who care.
I hope this is a good week for us all.
