Missing but not gone


I'm sorry to say that I missed yet another Friday finds. So maybe I should change it to every other Friday.
My days have been surrounded by boxes and all my worldly possessions are scattered around in chaos. We are somewhat frantically trying to move out of our current situation into a more flexible one so that one of these days or months we can actually become homeowners again. So yes, we are moving twice in theory but once right now. Ben calls it our summer vacation because we are moving to a house on a horse ranch out in the country. We both are city people for the most part (I relish the idea, sounds and feeling of the country but LOVE being in town to walk wherever I want to go). The boys are beside themselves with dreams of the tree house, exploring, walks in the woods and by the creek, horses, and so many other wonders that this new home will bring to their door.
So we are moving quickly. I started packing Thursday afternoon and we hope to be mostly settled in tonight. I have already found myself frustrated with the in between. Being two places at once. All my things divided and stacks of boxes here and there. Soon it will be behind us once again but for now my computer is going to rest in its box and I'm going to plow ahead and pray the rain takes a short hiatus while we load the trucks tonight....

Sounds fun (the new place, not the packing/moving) and the kids will have a GREAT time out there!:) I grew up in a teeny, tiny town (not quite country but really close) and have the best memories of playing in the river and messin' around!:) Of course, that was back in the day when there was no internet to worry about.:) We'd never hack it today!:)

Can't wait to see pics of your new place! You'll have to post some when you get settled.

Its ok to miss a Friday Find for moving, that can be all-consuming sometime in the details! :)
