Well, howdy doody all! Hope your week has been filled with challenge, excitement, drama and maybe even something fun for someone in your life!
You know that saying, "God never gives you more than you can handle?" Ahem....well, my "handle" bar was lifted when I wasn't looking! I thought I would collapse from stress overload, but I didn't. I'm alive today to tell about how the guy upstairs continues to come through for me...time after time!
A few weekends ago, I was packing up what was left (after purging, selling or otherwise disposing) of 35 years of stuff to be moved to a 10'x20' shared garage close to my current dream home (a one-bedroom apartment). After trekking 300 miles south, we loaded the truck, kissed the house goodbye and trekked back to the dream house...all within 24 hours. Two days later, we received closing documents, got them notarized and over-nighted back (not without a hiccup) and closed the deal completely. The following day, the front porch balcony of the dream home was to be torn down and rebuilt, so we moved food and clothes for 10 days to another dream home about a football field away. I'm grateful the dog continued to relieve herself outside and not in the new dream house.
The new balcony is almost finished, we no longer have a mortgage payment, and our adventure in paradise begins with no ties to the "old world", except for my four little darlings...who live 300 miles away...who can no longer "pop" in when they are in the neighborhood. I am breathing again...I'm walking on sunshine...and it feels good!
Thanks for stopping by today. Please "pop" in and say hello to Mrs4444 at Half Past Kissin' Time by clicking on the logo below.
P.S.: I LOVE and desperately miss my darlings!
