Stringing Thoughts Together

Thanks for everyone's comments on the house and the weight loss. There has been so much to do in so little time, and this is the time when work had to pick up as well! Added to all this is that my husband has been working a ton of overtime so I have to pick up the slack for the things he would normally do. I feel like I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off! I am so glad my husband has today off so I can turn this stuff over to him.

We have nothing packed, except for the things we left in boxes from our move to Minnesota. But we have plenty of time to move. I think all the paperwork is done, so all we have to do is write the final closing check and sign the papers, both which will be done tomorrow. My husband is doing the walk through today, so hopefully that goes well.

Every night this week I have been playing catch up from the things my husband would normally do, plus finish up our State Taxes and get ready for my trip this weekend. Ya, good timing huh. I go out of town the weekend after our closing. Smart. But this trip has been planned for a long time. I am going to a Women's Retreat in Kansas City with my mom. The women's retreat is over the weekend and I'm extending my visit to see some old coworkers and friends. I think if I would have known how crazy and stressful this was going to be I would have just canceled my trip, but now it is a little late for that. But after I get back I can focus just on work and moving. I know moving will be stressful, but at least I can't do anything about it while I am at work. I can focus on just one thing at a time!


  1. It might be good for you to get away and come back renewed. You can think about priotitizing things while away from it and then have a plan of action for the important stuff first.

  2. congrats on the new place! pack the kitchen first. it ALWAYS takes the longest. =)

  3. Can't remember if I told you this before, but there is a run, or was, in Amarillo Tx held at the Coulter Road Baptist Church and they use the verse of the Bible that goes along the same lines as your blog title, does it sound like a trip may be in order?? How could you resist? Run Good!
