I've been AWOL for a while. Oh, I've been around but not much. It's been a kind of a busy time. I don't see it improving much. Our daughter's partner has had some serious health problems which has left her pretty much on her own to look after the kids. She's physically disabled herself so...... Anyway, Grandma's been on tap as taxi service and emergency 'pick up sick kids at school' service among other things.
It was going to be a spell of getting the house organised for Christmas and to that effect I have been on the go...the house is still in need of a deep down cleaning and organising but I DO have all the gift shopping and wrapping done. I don't like leaving everything to the last minute. I still have to take our daughter to Chapters/Indigo for a book buying session and she wants to use my computer for some on line gift shopping of her own AND I still have to take the kids shopping for their gifts to their parents and each other.
Now you would think that there is quite enough to keep me out of trouble and away from blogging for a bit longer BUT...and it is a big but.....something else has come up that threatens to send me into a tailspin of business and organising and ... oh gosh I don't know what all. What could have me running in circles and pulling my hair out? Are you ready for this? We finally got the call from the Elliott Community that there is a condo available. We have an appointment to view it on Tuesday in the afternoon. Can you imagine trying to prepare for a move at this time of year with Christmas on the horizon? Well, it may happen if we like this unit. We have waited close to four years for a unit to come available so we may have to just jump on it if we like it.
Funny fact. For four years we have been positive we want to leave our home of 31 years and make this move for our own security in our old age. Now that it may become reality I find myself not so sure anymore. Funny huh? Not so funny! This weird feeling inside is stressing me out no end. I will leave it to more powerful hands and mind than mine...I will know when I see it if it is to be. I expect that a feeling of calmness and acceptance will flood me if it is the right thing to do. Here's hoping.
At any rate, I will try to keep up with Poetry Monday and Words for Wednesday and I will drop in on all of you once in a while but until things settle down around me and I can get my brain to stand still for a few minutes things will be a little spotty regarding my attendance in blogger land. Don't give up on me.
