I didn’t drop off the edge of the earth as some of you may have suspected. I may have been tempted to jump off of a couple of cliffs, but I’m still here with my sanity partially intact.
I thought that I could just move into my new house and my life would continue as normal.
I would resume blogging. The internet fairy would automatically arrive and everything would just run smoothly.
I also thought that I would be able to run over the weekend. I haven’t run for a week and a half, probably a new record for me since I started running.
Today I was panicking. How will I be ready for a marathon next month?
I am never moving again, that is for sure.
I really misjudged how long it would take for us to get settled. I have been unpacking for 5 days and still have 20 full boxes in the garage and stuff to clean out of the old house. My son lost his wallet. I’m throwing my youngest daughter a birthday party tomorrow and couldn’t even find the measuring cups and stuff I needed to make a cake. It’s just crazy!!
I knew that it would be an adjustment, but I wasn’t expecting this.
Plus it has been super busy at work.
It kills me to leave work undone at home and at work.
My kids have been driving me utterly crazy. They are acting more as hindrances than helpers. They are spoiled brats and it is my own fault. I’ve done everything I could to make their life perfect, to give them everything that I’ve never had.
Moving has been a very big adjustment for all of us. And I thought that the dog and cat would have the hardest time with this..
I am planning on having a rummage sale this weekend. It’s amazing how much crap a person can accumulate when they live somewhere almost 20 years.
We have been working on getting our old house ready to put on the market.
I have so much to tell you!! But I feel guilty playing and having fun when there is work to be done. I have been pushing myself really hard because I can. I am crabby and irritable, but I get things done. I fail to take care of myself. I’ve been trying to run this marathon at a sprint speed and it really hasn’t been working out for me…but I have to tell myself that this clutter and disorganization is temporary. (Remember I am never moving again!!!!!).
I will try be back soon. I just wanted to let you know that all is well and I absolutely love my new house. I just need some time to unpack and settle in…
