Anxiety is not an emotion many people like to talk about. Well, I’m not one of those people. I’m normally a pretty laid back person. However, there’s so much going on in my life right now that I’m feeling rather overwhelmed and anxious.
Where to begin??? We decided a few weeks ago that maybe we should put our house up for sale since this is the time of year that most people are looking to move. We’d already found a nice smaller size home that we loved. So, we cleaned out a few closets and put away most of the clutter. We listed out house and went on vacation for 9 days. The first people to look at our house within 24 hours of listing it were the ones to make an offer a few days later. That’s pretty exciting.
I’m starting to freak out a little bit though because we are downsizing by about 2500 square feet. The new house seems so nice and new and practical, but we’re used to having so much storage space. The new house offers hardly any storage at all. The new house was the model home, so it was decorated to the nines. Now that we purchased it, they’ve moved the furniture and accessories out of the house. The empty house is sort of scaring me because we need all new furniture to fill it because our current furniture doesn’t really match. Can you tell that I’m needing to vent?? Haha!
We also decided to purchase a lot in a brand new neighborhood that will begin construction around the beginning of 2015. Now we get to go through the whole process of building a new custom home that will hopefully be our dream home.
On top of everything with buying and selling homes and lots, my dad’s been in the hospital for over three weeks now. We just take it day by day. Unfortunately whenever he takes one step forward he takes three steps back. It’s been a rough 5 years for him health wise.
One of my daughters is transferring colleges. I’ve been going to orientations and such with her for the past few weeks. My son’s been playing in golf tournaments, which is sort of stressful in its own way because you always want your kids to do well. My other daughter moved out of the house and into an apartment with a friend. My dog is cute, but she suffers terribly from separation anxiety. It’s gotten to the point where she’s almost a danger to herself. Therefore we’ve started taking her to doggie day camp during the day so she doesn’t have to be alone.
Other than that, I’m doing GREAT!! How has your summer been?
