Well, that was a fun weekend. I got Mom home safely and came home. I did not quite know what to do with myself when I got home. I had a lot to do, a lot on my mind, I was worried over the financials surrounding Mom’s move. I wasn’t sure to work in the house, to rest, to watch a show, or work on my To Do list. I needed to work through some stuff in my head. I didn’t know where to start. I just sat down in a chair and did nothing. George was reading. We talked about the situation and decided it was dependent upon a few certain things as to whether this situation was “doable” aka affordable for Mom. While we talked, Mom was doing some investigating into her finances. She called. And it appears everything is in order and it is doable and affordable – despite some odd or unforeseen situation. It was a relief to all of us. After that, I was relaxed in my mind. I’m excited to have her come this way and so if all goes according to plan, after seeing the HOA rules, and looking at the build site, Mom plans to “say yes to the new address”!
Saturday we will be picking her up and going back out there and she will pick the lot, put down the deposit (I guess, unless it’s done before then). Then we start working to get her house ready for sale. It’s going to be busy but very exciting. So my new project is “Project Mom”. LOL. Looking forward to having her here where we can have time to properly take care of her. The move puts her new home built by December. We think her house, in this market will sell very fast. So she will stay with us in between. We have a lot of storage room downstairs for temporary storage. Some can go here and likely we will have to temporarily rent a storage unit also – we’ll see. We will figure it all out.
Exciting times for sure!
So now that Easter is over, I’ll be working this week on my To Do List, and the next video, which is our Texas trip. I have been VERY bad about not doing any filming/videoing of anything in the last month. I guess I’ve kinda been in crisis mode with the videos. I’m at a cross roads of having to decide how it is I want to continue doing them. I want them to be more intentional and that means more planned. This based on several of your comments. But what happens is there is minimal time for planning these things. I usually just pieced together snippets of life as it happened, unintentional – but some of you complained or gave comments that you wanted more of this or less of that. So I just kinda clammed up instead. One thing is for sure, I don’t really have time to do them. I’m stretching right now with working FT and life happening. Time is always an issue. But I’ll figure it out.
I also have to decide if I want to work on my To Do List or the videos themselves. lol. Lately there has not been time to do much of anything and my time is going to be narrowing as I deal with the move for Mom and once she is here I’ll be spending a lot of my hours with her or for her. But, like I have said before. I love doing the videos and will figure it out. Right now I just feel like my life is in turmoil for some reason. I’m sure it’ll iron out! lol
At least we are having fun. I’m also wanting to go the flooring place this weekend. I’m anxious to see what this is going to cost us. And I’m anxious to get this done. I told George and Mom, I’m about ready to move out myself! This is going to have to be on me to make it happen and pushing for it b/c George is NOT going to take the lead on spending money!
Ok I’m going to be over and out and work on my To Do List some. We’ll see what happens.
Meanwhile in Texas
I think River made peace with the Easter Bunny. I see his little grin!
