Ok.. when I said I felt like a broken record about wanting to slow life down, I meant it. At the time, however, I didn’t offer a ton of context. I mean, every post about every single little thing that happens IS context but I’ve barely had enough time too keep up with even that.
Yes, I moved. Yes, my house is now for sale. But what else?? Easier to say what’s not going on…. ha!
My ex who was supposed to have the kids all week came down with the flu AND pneumonia and so they were unexpectedly at the new house all week. That has hindered our unpacking and organizing effort a little.
My darling daughter who is just shy of 17 years old got in her first fender-bender this week (driving her dad’s vehicle) and was a mess because of that. She’s physically ok but it scared the crap out of her and now she is very leery to get behind the wheel again.
She also was not feeling well and ended up staying home from school on Friday. We were both up at 5AM Friday because of that which made for an extremely long day. Then she had to be at school today, Saturday, early to take a practice ACT which meant getting up before the sun again and driving to the old neighborhood.
I’ve driven to Papillion and back no less than twice a day all week which just takes time. I knew that going in, and that’s what I committed to, but I really was counting on getting a little reprieve from that this week.
What else? An appointment with one of my good friends on Wednesday AND we had tickets to a Creighton Basketball game Wednesday. Those were both great, but not good timing with everything else. I hate basketball, by the way, so it was more about just having a date night – just the two of us, than anything. I’ll go for the fun of it, but don’t expect me to know what’s going on OR care. 😜
I may have mentioned my visit to the orthopedic surgeon on Monday which ended in getting a shot in my arm. I suppose there’s a whole blog post I could do about that saga but it’s definitely not at the top of my list of potential topics.
Today has just flown by and I’m still just getting stuff done, minute by minute, hour by hour.
In truth all that context is just Fluff next to the significance of this day. February 2nd is probably going to be my future wedding anniversary which means a year from now I’ll be married. Wowza!! I never thought I would ever make that leap again and thinking back to one short year ago, I can’t hardly believe it. This time last year I was toggling between being obsessed with the bumble swiping and feeling like dumping all dating apps because of all my negative experiences trying to connect with people.
I couldn’t in a million years imagine that in 2018 I would meet the most incredible person and that I’d be falling in love. Not to mention that he would feel the same to the degree that he would propose to me less than 6 months later. Don’t even get me started on the moving in together. Like I said… Wowza!!
Today, February 3rd is our 11 month anniversary and despite the crazy lately, I could not be happier. I trust things will settle down and I’m really looking forward to today and tomorrow and next week and this month and all the awesome in the year to come. It’s going to be great. 💃💃🎉🎉❤️❤️
It’s now the third day in a row I started a blog on one day and didn’t finish until the next. That’s bugging the crap out of me and it stops now. Time to Cut and Run.
