A good Friday
I had hoped to get this post up early this morning, but life got in the way and before I knew it, the sun was setting and I was sitting on my couch, in my pj's and wondering just where did the day go?
It wasn't a bad or overly busy day though, I think I'm so used to be being on the go that I took a break today and ended up doing nothing really, of anything, except for driving kids around.
Started my morning with a cup of coffee and some computer work. Had emails and some bills to pay etc. Then I headed to the bank and then to pay the rent. It felt so weird paying the last rent on this house, I have to be honest, I'm going to miss this house, it has been such a great little home for my family and initally we had planned on staying here for at least 2 years and possibly looking into buying it had we stayed in Mountain Home.
Wasn't in God's plan though and I've learned over the years, NOT to question Him, He always knows best.
I also had to run by Walmart to pick up more packing tape, and while there I grabbed the cheap 4 stack $1 plastic plates that they have as part of their spring/summer sale. This weekend I plan on packing up most of my kitchen and leaving really only some essentials.
Oh I'm so ready to be done with this move. You'll hear me say that a lot in the next few weeks, sorry.
We have had the most beautiful warm days lately, today actually reached 80 degrees and I just had to step outside and enjoy it. I think Spring is one of my favorite seasons, there is just such beauty all around us, new life, new growth, new beginnings.
As I sat on the deck watching it all around me, it dawned on me that this move to Texas is almost like Spring in our lives. We're starting fresh, yet again, we have all these hopes and dreams, we've had to grow as individuals and as a family the past few months and we're about to start a blank new slate, a new beginning.
I used to be absolutely terrified of change and the possibility of doing something completely out of my normal routine, but I have to thank the many years as an active duty family, for teaching me how to embrace change and not be terrified by it.
I now see every new adventure chapter in our lives, as an adventure, as a story waiting to be told by us. An opportunity to see new places and try new things, and who doesn't like that?
And speaking of new things, I have left out some of my yarn so that I can work on a quick project. I miss my crochet so very much and I feel the need to make something pretty and yet simple, just a project that I don't have to pay too much attention to or worry about counting stitches etc.
Can't wait to get started.
It's getting pretty late here and I have quite a bit to get done tomorrow and need to get an early start, so I'm going to close this post off and head on to bed.
