The stress is real, guys.
I don’t even know where to begin. Transition, even well-planned, is a mess.
I’ve opted to go full time at the clinic. While exciting, it’s very sad – bittersweet, I suppose. I absolutely love the adults I work with and it breaks my heart to know I won’t work with them any more. I sent out emails to them all letting them know and the amount of love that has come back my way has been overwhelming and unexpected.
So that’s one transition. But of course with that comes a lot of other transitions – schedules, child care expenses, etc….
My ex-husband still doesn’t have a job. Lord help him.
The other major transition is the house which, again, has a lot of other transitions. A lot of it revolves around timing. The other part is having to go through an entire house filled with decades worth of stuff. I went through ONE bathroom closet yesterday and threw out THREE bags of garbage PLUS a bag of donations. That’s just ONE BATHROOM CLOSET. There two hallway closets, an attic, Boy Child’s closet, Doods’ whole room, the kitchen, dining room, and entire basement. It’s, um, a little overwhelming. PLUS we’re losing an entire weekend due to moving my Mom’s stuff to Nashville. I may need help sorting through everything in the house and packing. It’s one of those things that is almost stopping me before I start. I’ve tried making a plan to break it down in to more manageable steps but that makes it almost more overwhelming. I don’t know.
Husband and I are meeting with the family to help solidify a timeline of sorts on Thursday. Fingers crossed the timing lines up because…. Just pray for a good timeline.
Everything that we originally planned has been thrown up in the air.
We were also going to do an estate sale, but because the timeline is all jacked. That means we have to take pictures of everything and get it online and try to get it hustled out before we have to be out.
I’m trying to maintain a handle on things and it’s a little overwhelming. Which I knew it would be. One step at a time, I guess.
Thanks for stopping by.
I am glad you exist.
