When Organization Fails

I'm not one to wish away time - even though this month has been like a stall in the continuum. It wasn't supposed to be this way. I had an organized plan. The house we bought in Arizona was scheduled to close on December 29th. We drove out from Minnesota to spend Christmas with the family. After New Year's, my would husband fly back leaving the dog with me. He had to finish working out the month in Minnesota and he would drive out the U-haul with our household goods. I would stay at my sister's.

The whole plan began to crumble when the closing date changed. And changed again. And changed again. The inspector found more things than met the eye. Frank went back and we still hadn't closed. It did eventually close but with a bit of a hassle since we are now residing in two different states.

Family got in the way of the rest of my great organized plan. And I knew they would which is why I worked so hard to have a plan. Without even trying they worked harder to disrupt it. If you are a writer, you will probably understand what I mean. They're very proud of my accomplishments, the books I've published, and they don't hesitate to tell everyone I'm an author. But understanding what that means - that I need to actually write - must be hard to grasp. Blogging is totally out of their realm.

And so, no I don't wish time away, but I'm a bit anxious to be in the new house the first week of February. In the meantime, I will enjoy the unorganized time with family fitting in my writing and blogging as I can. Breathe in, breathe out, move on.

You have a great attitude, Brenda. I'd probably run screaming and rip my hair out or kill someone! The end result will be worth it, though. Stay strong!

What you would do has crossed my mind! LOL

This moving project has really turned into a marathon for you, but I know you'll make it. Just keep reminding yourself it's almost over. The finish line is in sight!

Barbara Edwards said...

Good luck with the rest of the move.

We talk about moving, too, but it makes my brain sore just to think about it. Keep us updated on your adventures!

A moving marathon is correct. I guess that's part of why I'm blogging on it. And yes, an adventure!
