We are homeowners again! Although we closed on the house yesterday, the sellers won't move out until Saturday sometime, so we're still in the apartment, but still . . . we have a house! I'll have a week to paint, clean, obsess, etc. until June 16, when we will actually move. Then, serious "nesting" will begin! I'll try to post photos when I learn how to do that.
I have to admit--the comment about obsessing isn't a joke. I'm completely overtaken by thoughts about the house and anytime I'm not thinking about something else, that's what I'm thinking about. As KC has observed, "place" seems to be very important to me.
But even while I'm obsessed with "nesting," other stirrings seem to be returning. I had lunch yesterday with two of our staff at MBC and they were talking about mental health issues and the need for good therapists and the impact of such people on their own lives and I could feel the old enthusiasm bubbling up, feeling ready to get back in the game, even if it is a new game in a new city. I didn't expect to feel that so soon, so there was reassurance there.
In the meantime, though, I'm more interested in paint colors and furniture placement!
