I am so thankful for where I am in life right now. No I don’t like transition. No one has ever accused me of being patient, and while it has been 20 years since I received the “most persistent” award at summer camp, I am still trying to figure out if that was a good thing.
We close on the new house in a week. And I can’t believe it. The repairs on our current house are almost done and even though I am going on 5 days with no dryer (due to the construction), I am still optimistic about our new home. I can’t wait to get in there and get to work turning it from a house into our HOME.
Our staying home.
Our lives will be in this house. And even now as I imagine Oscar running around in the front yard, I can almost as easily imagine him playing basketball in the driveway and having friends over to play video games.
I picture the next 10, 15, maybe even 20 years and I see this house. How will we grow? How will it adapt to us? I hope we treat each other well because we are in it for the long haul.
The past months have been spent planning and dreaming and hoping and now with the move just around the corner, I just find myself thankful.
I am a sucker for nostalgia and while I will miss my first home, I am ready start making memories that we can all reflect on for years to come.
It won’t be long now.
