I’m in a panic. 29 days and we didn’t get either of the places we were hoping to rent. One was too close to a major road and traffic noise the other was already rented by the time we could get more info.
29 days till they pack all the stuff and nowhere to live….
Yeah, kinda freaking out here. I know 29 days is still a long time but in the area we are trying to find a place (which switches back and forth between Bucks County and Chester almost daily, I think we no longer care so long as the schools are good) stuff seems to be renting fast. Let me clarify, the good stuff is renting fast. Like the nice big houses we are trying to rent. Nice house (usually) corresponds to nice schools. Hopefully we found a absolutely wonderful place in a very nice neighborhood, 2 car garage, 4 bedroom, designer kitchen – that kind of very nice house (aka we could never actually afford to buy the thing). I continue to search the listings, there’s plenty out there it’s just hard to say from looking at a picture ‘Yes I’ll live there for a year!’ Sight unseen.
I’m burying myself in a book in the evenings because I can’t think about everything 24/7 without losing my mind.
It’s the right choice and a good choice to go now but I am apprehensive about the whole thing. It is certainly easier to be away from Hubby in a place I know rather than here but when my imagination dreams up the axe murder at the door there will be no one to wake up and tell about it. I’m going to have to be in charge of my children solo 24/7. It’s a bit harder to say “Let’s call daddy and see what he would have to say about your behavior” like I do now on occasion when he’ll be so far away. (surprisingly that line usually works with Boo).
I’m so busy thinking about other stuff I didn’t even realize that the lady doing my blogover should have contacted me on Monday. I was a space cadet yesterday when another parent (whom I’ve been casually chatting with on and off since September) finally told me his name. I was like oh Hi. And I continued to walk alongside him to the school door without saying anything else. Very friendly.
I didn’t even realize yesterday was Wednesday. I forgot about Sign Language Wednesday. I’m staying away from all things bloggy for now cause I simply don’t have the time to cram in one more thing in the brain. I am actually avoiding the computer for anything other than house searching or related moving things. I don’t know how often I’ll be blogging until the hurry up and wait stage takes over. Next Wednesday the movers come to evaluate our stuff. Then it’s our weekend in Berlin, then the cubscouts end of year ceremony and then we are leaving.
Officially freaking out.
