So starts another week in limbo.
Not knowing when we will get to Hamilton... I hate this feeling.

I just want to move on with the next chapter, get us all settled again in a new home.
When you put your house on the market, you disengage from where you are... the house you made into your home becomes just another house you want to move out of.

I no longer feel 'at home' here.  It's not a nice feeling.  

*sigh*... moan over.  

I have NO PLANS today.  The house is spotless.  There is nothing to do.  
I don't feel like sewing.
So I might as well work on the fitness.

Get on the treadmill/exercycle ... while watching a movie on the TV downstairs.
Let's hope that lightens me misery guts mood.

Oh yeah... some photos from last night:

 ABOVE:  beautiful, smiley Archer.

 ABOVE:  Steve looking like a bloody sheep... I cut his hair last night, then forgot to take an 'AFTER' photo.  Derrr.

 ABOVE:  Hanging out before dinner.

ABOVE:  Archer happy on his tummy.


BELLA:  No he didn't.  He's not rolling over YET.
Won't be long though, he's trying hard.

This morning I did NOTHING.
I am just in the most crabby, depressed mood.
I can't seem to pull myself out of it.
I'm eating anything and everything and I don't give a shit.

See?  Depressed.  Can't see anything good happening for ages... just like what happened in Palmerston North... took something like 11? months to sell there.   Over it already. 

Sheesh! What happened to my "Don't Stress About It, It WILL Happen Attitude?"
I don't want to be this misery guts.
I'm going to kick myself in the butt and sort my self out.
There has to be something I can do to make my time happier.

But What? Maybe going back to patchwork class?  Hospice?  Must give it some thought I think, I don't want another day like today, where I simply did not want to even get out of bed.

End of Day:  a crappy day.  No motivation to do anything.  Hopefully I'm out of this funk tomorrow.
nite nite


  1. Spring and summer seem to be much more conducive to selling houses here. Maybe it will happen soon.

  2. Did Archer make over to his tummy by his self?

    Maybe you should auction your house like sister inlaw did?

    Come on Mrs Cranky pants!!!! Hang in there!!!!

  5. My friend swears by planting Joseph (I think) in the garden I think it's a catholic thing

  6. Sorry, Chickie, only you can help your frame of mind. I reckon looking at auction might be the go for you after all. Once you've made that decision things might look up for you. Perk up, at least you're not homeless.

    Sounds along with the stress of waiting for a sale - that you are bored. Sorry - no suggestions, I had the wait to sell the farm and can relate, it will happen for you. Maybe less stressful if you go viewing by appointment only. I'm sure you've looked at all the options, but just a thought. I know I got over the open homes. Anne - Palmy

  8. Archer is utterly adorable that smile! Steve surely did need a haircut.... The waiting must be unbearable walk walk walk move move move or can you nestle somewhere in the warm and sun and read?

  9. The waiting must be unbearable not helped by fact Stew had to travel too and fro every week. Hope something happens soon.
    Think going back to craft class and hospice shoppe to fill time is great idea.
    U also got rember your house was fill to the seams when the kids was all there and u probes sing them way more than u let pm kiddo xxx

  10. Because you have your house all sorted, you are bored, add that to the stress of selling and missing Stew. Keep yourself busy doing anything, go for a walk, pick UFO and finish it.

  11. Archer looks a bit like he is buried in sand up to his neck at first glance. Get on that excercise equipment or those boots will have to go back in the box !!

  12. OH MY GOSH it's Grizzly Adams! lol

  13. To begin with Archer is so cute it's hard not to smile like a goof at every adorable picture. Second, some things are out of your hands and you know that and you are allowed to get frustrated at the process, but it will all work out eventually because why shouldn't it?
