I didn't mean to go silent on my blog last week. I'm just having a hard time focusing on things to blog about. Fun things to blog about. Not stressful things to blog about which is how I've felt this past week (well... many many weeks actually). It's all sort of coming to a head now and hopefully will all get in line real darn quick here.
Basically my husband is going to be changing careers... going from being self-employed for the last year renovating/flipping/renting houses to going back to work. Not a place he wants to go. I hate to bring it up, but it's 100% driven by the economy woes and how no banks are lending any money to anyone. We have three houses we're trying to rent or sell and that's stressing me out, too. So basically we have houses to sell but no buyers... and no money to buy houses with. Makes it hard to keep this going, don't you think?
We've really enjoyed having my husband working for himself for the last year. He's rejoined the human race and not slaved away making millions for someone else like he did for the last decade. It's not a fun place to be for any of us. It's hard to transition back to that. But I guess the good news is that my husband has several very promising job leads that we hope will come to light this week. All of them will be a major change for our family though so that's hard to swallow.
Not knowing what is going to happen in the near future leaves me with lots of nervous energy and tension. It makes it hard to focus on anything for any period of time.
I did finish my husband's Cobblestone sweater and it turned out perfectly. I also finished a pair of socks for him. Now I'm working on a sweater for my oldest son for Christmas.
Other than knitting, yesterday I had a blast playing outside. It was in the 50s and it was beautiful. No wind, bright sunshine. I soaked up as much as I could. I raked our entire back yard again (nervous energy to burn), and took my boys to the park. It felt great to get outside and run around after quite a cold week we had last week. The temps are supposed to go back down today but the sunshine is still here and that makes me happy. I'm going to make an effort to bundle up and get out as much as I can because it's so good for the soul and the mood of this Mama!
So, in the mean time I'll be here pacing, fretting, twiddling my thumbs while I wait and see what is in store for this family next. It's all an adventure. We're up for just about anything... it's the waiting that eats away at me. I'm keeping positive thoughts though. It's all good. Have a good one, my friends.
