Hey Ho

We've got another showing this morning, so there's hope.... right? Right.

The house is spic and span.

I said to Mr F last night "It's no joke how clean this house is. People don't get it... it's as clean as humanly possible."

And it is.

I've got to take some pride in the only things I can control these days.

I haven't worked out in 3 weeks. It's always amazing to me how quickly you can lose your will to carry on when you've had a break like that. It's as if I NEVER did it. You know?

I'll get back on that when we go North and I have more time, or at least have more time that isn't constantly interrupted by crises (knock on wood).

I've never wanted to have an RV more than I do know. It feels like some sort of an answer. Too bad that isn't going to happen right now. I'd like to have a space of my own that I could obsessively organize with cute little cubbies and whatnot.

It's hard being here now. Our house feels less and less like home, and more and more like a place to sleep and eat strange concoctions of non perishables from our pantry.... and a job. A serious, exhausting, never ending job.

We kind of shuttle around from one chunk of time to another, in the house between showings, driving around to random errands or time killers during them, not fully living. Not really cooking, not really playing.... just treading water, watching whatever crappy DVDs we can get from the library (the kids), and cleaning the bathroom AGAIN (me). It's been ridiculously hot and humid and the mosquitos are out in full force... so the kids are stuck in that awful summer trap of not wanting to be out but being bored to tears (or fights) by staying in.

This part will end soon at least.

We're heading up to Michigan on Monday (we think). Still haven't heard from the fence guy... but I can't wait here forever. Maybe our realtor will step up and actually help me with something... like... meeting the fence guy and showing him where to move it?

Or, maybe, the showing today will end with an offer?

Pretty please?

I'm praying that today is the day for you guys-that the showing today will bring a REASONABLE offer in the near future. We are finally finished moving into our new house but it is a disaster and feels like it is going to take forever to make it "home". I can't see an end in sight. As I've said before, I cannot imagine how crazy you feel with the moving plus all of the MANY other issues at hand-especially doing this alone for the most part. I'm thinking of you all and hoping things begin to change and move quickly for all of you!!

Stuck in limbo. That is the worst. Knowing you are leaving someplace, but still stuck there. Awful. I am thinking of you and praying to St. Joseph for you guys as well.

Seriously. It has to happen!
I'm so glad you're going back to MI though - a light at the end of the tunnel.

Get this -I got my grammy into the Amish books :) So freakin' adorable.

Limbo is awful. I keep believing that you're heading for something better, and what you're leaving behind won't be there for long. Hugs to all of you.
