Ok – so some of you have commented how quiet my blog has been lately, and by my blog of course you mean me. Well, there are two reasons for that. One is, I promise not to write a post if I don’t have anything to say. That might be a rare occasion. You know me. I usually have things to say.
And secondly – I really am speechless.
There are so many details staring us down right now and a couple of big hurdles. I’ll be glad when the school year has ended (read: final exams, writing exams, marking exams, graduation – which Dave has been asked to speak at) and then I can have the full attention of my husband. You know, for tackling some of these details.
Our house is up for sale. It’s a great house if you know anyone looking. Send them our way please. Once it sells we can start moving on getting rid of stuff. Until then, we kind of need it. Once it sells, Dave will load up a van full of useful stuff and head out to Winnipeg with Daughter #1 to see Daughter #2. The two of them will share the spoils of said useful stuff.
There are police checks and blood tests – neither of which has been straightforward. Daughter #3’s school registration. What to do with the dog. Yes, I’m sure it doesn’t sound like a big deal, but what to do with the dog has been (and maybe still is) a big decision. Lots of research being done.
In the midst of all of this, Daughter #1 has announced her engagement. She’ll be married next summer in Winnipeg. We’re so happy (such a nice future son-in-law I have)…but details! Details mixed with distance. Yikes!
And on all of these things, the clock is ticking. Seven weeks of work left and 9 ½ weeks until we go.
So why have I been so silent? I’m paralyzed that’s why!
I’m fine. I’m just sparing you. And I’m paralyzed.
1) School year over
2) House sold
Then I promise I’ll go back to my happily chattering self. I’m sure you can hardly wait .
