That's where I'll be tonight . . . sleeping on the couch. I didn't do anything to make my husband mad. Instead, he has been making me proud all day long . . . finishing up the last of the painting in a 2 story stairwell that required some very tricky maneuvering of the ladder. That stairwell is right outside our bedroom and since its raining outside, the windows (which were open & venting the fumes) had to be closed. The fumes are bad enough that they're making my pregnant stomach sick, so I'll be heading to the first floor to sleep on the couch tonight.
Wow! I'm amazed as I look around at this house & how much we've done in the last couple of months as we're preparing to move. I sure would buy it if I was looking for a house in Maryland!
For those who might be wondering, we're still not sure when the move will take place. We do know that Jeff has been asked to start work in Colorado on Nov. 23rd. But we're still waiting on work to get the fiscal budget in place so they can start allocating funds for our move & get some things in place for us . . . like our trip out to Colorado to find a place to live and an appointment with a property management company to see about renting out our house instead of selling.
Its taken some faith on my part -- the one who always has to have a plan (well in advance) to know what is going to happen & be prepared for it ahead of time. But I have finally been able to "let go" and let it stop eating away at me. For now, we're doing what we can & preparing for what we can & then we'll deal with any challenges as they come instead of worrying about challenges we may face that may never even happen at all.
