I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog since the beginning of this year.
I also toyed with other ideas in terms of the future, such as going back to college and moving.
The process for college was started.
I applied, set up financial aid, even started to pick classes, then, it just didn't seem like the right time.
At the same time I was trying to find the order in my life for schoolwork and the degree path I wanted to take, selling our house started to seem really appealing.
And, so, on a quickly made decision, planning to pull out of the process if it got to seem like it wasn't right, we started looking into the selling/ buying process.
Today, I am now writing as I look at the sale of our house closing this week, and I am feeling that familiar nudge to do something productive while waiting.
We are in temporary housing with family.
Everything seems turned upside down.
I am stressed.
And, yet, I want to be present in this moment, because this is the first time in 7 years that I have moved, and I don't plan to again.
I want to pay attention to my children at this time and make sure their fears and questions are addressed and answered.
Spending time with them has been less of a chore as when it was routine. I am enjoying spending time with them in the sense that they are the root of what has NOT changed in our lives now.
In this time of transition, I am working on physically decluttering the endless store of boxes in our storage area. This physical process is prompting me to try to simplify my mind as well, and dream of what I would like life to look like in the next few years.
So, here I am, starting this journey and this blog.
