Even though I knew it was coming, it feels like the rug has been pulled out from underneath me.
My chest is cramping with stress and the lists running through my head are giving me the spins.
The last few days have been chaos amidst boxes and packing tape, furniture pads and piles.
So many piles.
We’ve decided whether to save, sell, donate or store countless items.
Another new address.
Temporary, but still.
I don’t like change.
Especially on top of all our regular everyday stresses…
Trips to the grocery store.
Phone calls to make and return.
Full In Boxes.
Lunches to prepare.
A chipped tooth and an emergency visit to the dentist.
A dog with warts in his mouth (Ugh. Don’t ask!).
Birthday presents to purchase.
But, I don’t have any more going on in my life than you, in fact your To Do list probably looks a lot like mine. Sure the tasks may differ, but the intent behind the reminders is the same and I’m sure the strong desire to cross items off is too!
The older I get the more I realize change can be exciting and a move doesn’t have to be all that stressful. It’s a huge pain-in-the-ass, but I know it’ll all get done.
Plus, there’s a lot of really great stuff going on right now too. Lucas, for one is very excited about living in an apartment complex that has not one, but three pools! We are looking forward to a fun Spring and Summer and finding a house by Fall.
I’m not going to be posting here as much over the next few weeks, so bear with me. Having said that, my infertility column over at SheKnows is still of the utmost importance to me and you can find a new post there every Monday through May. Today’s offering is Acupuncture for infertility: On pins and needles. Please read and share!
