Hi friends (hi mom), 

I'm feeling a bit blue lately and I've decided it is because I am homesick.... not to be confused with being at home, sick.  

Nope, instead, I miss my house.  

I don't really miss the house itself.  It wasn't anything special.  I don't miss cleaning it, or not having a dishwasher, or paying for it every month or my major pain-in-the-patootie, hoitie-toitie neighbors that ended up being part of the reason we left.  

I miss the stability we had when we lived here.  I knew when Hubs was coming home, I knew I needed to cook supper for us, I knew that we could plan for spring and planting the garden (that's lie, I actually only planted the garden one year and it was with pumpkins because they get planted so late that's all I had time to do by the time I got around to it!) 

Things in my life are in a bit of an upheaval and are unsteady and this is not at all the life I was living when we lived in our home. (Someday, I'll get into it a blog post, but today's not the day.)

What life is right now, however, is the ride I signed up for when I fell for this guy. 

This guy who likes to do silly things like this:

This guy who loves me and supports me and my dreams the same way I support him.  I have his back.  He has mine.  We're a team.

(anyone else immediately think of the Reliant K lyrics, "we should get jerseys, 'cause we make a good team" ... no...just me.... I'm ok with that)

We'll be settled again eventually, but for now, I'll opt to pay rent and not have to worry about property taxes because I know that soon, very soon, it'll all be back to normal... whatever that is  ;)

'Til then, I'm just keepin' the faith that it'll all work out the way it's supposed to.  After all, there is no other way, is there?

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11  NIV


  1. All you need is love, right? It'll all work out!

  2. Tough I know - but home is where the people/person who loves you most is - so since you are together - YOU ARE HOME!

  3. Limbo is never fun. I struggle soooo much when I know I can't go to the next step and I am not sure when I can. HUGS. It has to be tough. When Mike was gone, I felt like my world was literally on pause for 10 weeks.

    This too shall pass... You'll get there... Love will get ya there ;)

  4. Praying that everything turns out well for you!

    Have a great weekend!


  5. Hang in there! You'll get settled in soon enough... Then you'll be missing all your buddies you left back here!

  6. Isn't funny how normal changes. With time you'll see all your goals being accomplished. Hope you have an awesome week!

  7. hmmm i know where you are comming from! Sometimes i miss home (the netherlands) so bad i can feel it in my bones...
