Unsettled. Restless. Anxious. Annoyed. I seem to be flooded with these feelings. I'm not really enjoying this season of emotion. Neither is my beloved.
Four weeks ago, Amanda was in for her last trip before Baby Alex arrives. In the course of our conversations, I told her that I was restless. The next day a gentleman knocks on the door and asks if we would sell our house. Long story short, for three weeks our lives were in a helter-skelter state as we considered whether we would sell... and, what would we want to do if we did. We named a price. He was not deterred and scheduled a time to meet with us. We looked at houses in a frenzied state. Was there anything out there that we would be happy with? We came up with a game plan. He backed out. We were relived... and disappointed. Topsy-turvy.
Then, there was the issue of forming an LLC for all my "projects" that have become rental properties. I hate to even use the term "rental property" there is such a negative association with rentals. I have high aspirations for the saved old beauties... but, alas, they are, at the end of the day, rental properties. Loved rental properties. Still rental properties. Dragging along all the baggage that goes with the territory of landlords and tenants. Mostly good for us. But, not all. Word to the wise: You should form the LLC BEFORE you start collecting the projects.
Then, of course, there is the waiting for Little H (aka Baby Correa. aka Alexander Cole). Probably the root of the restless anxiousness. Won't be long now.
We did have a fun afternoon with Janna and Zack. Janna is a great little soccer player and came over on a hot Sunday afternoon to play in a Mexican League game. We were treated to both the joy of watching her work her magic on the field and a big girl fight (that I have to admit was entertaining in a bizarre fashion). Mostly it was great fun to spend time with Zack and Janna.
Evan and I celebrated eight years on the 30th. I love how we still laugh!
I am hoping that now that the house situation is past, things will settle down. I have things to do before I leave town. There is a very special young family I want to take a house warming present and see how they are doing. I need to make a list for my beloved of things that will need to continue while I am gone. And, batten down the hatches for my plants... to survive as best they can. =)
Still... I am restless.
