This was my mother’s response to my last post- the one where I was full of anxiety and convinced I was going to explode myself and everything around me because I know nothing about propane tanks.
AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh, Mama Bear.
…but it seems I will (still) be stuck opening my own cans of biscuits. Thankfully, I don’t use them very often.
Sunday. My twin sisters’ birthdays. The last day of February and this weekend.
I haven’t felt compelled to do much these past few days. Between working a little bit of overtime the last two weeks and running errands, it’s been nice to just bleh.
And do the bare minimum.
This is a big year for the family, now that I think about it. The teenager and I are moving out to the country. He’ll get a license upgrade, which means he will be driving himself to school. And hopefully work, too! He’s been wanting a job for years.
As the man child dives into the working world, I will be at the edge of the shore, dipping my toes back into running my own household again. And into volunteer work.
That’s another achievement I’ve unlocked- I am going to start volunteering for an organization in Wichita. I don’t mind doing a little bit on weekends here and there that will make a difference. In fact, I very much want to.
Kind of feels like a dam has burst. For years, I have felt stagnant and now, everything is happening all at once.
I can’t help but be overwhelmingly grateful for these opportunities.
So many doors are opening. For years, I have been working on manifesting a two story home. A sanctuary. A home where people come to visit. A home where I can offer a cozy bed to someone who needs a safe place to stay.
A home that has a heart. A home full of life.
I mean, I had originally pictured it being in the city. Not that I am complaining about life in the country. Nature brings me peace, so to be surrounded by nothing but trees, fields, animals, and quiet is a most incredible gift in itself.
And then on top of that, I am lucky enough to be moving into a beautiful farm house. THAT HAS A SUN ROOM! A SUN ROOM!
You guys know I will be filling this place with plants. With some help from my friend in Texas. She spoils me with cuttings- and she is already planning what she’ll be placing in the next plant box she sends.
I was, however, curious if I’d have very many visitors once COVID fades away, because most of my local friends aren’t very local. And I am, essentially, moving into the middle of nowhere.
But I have been happily surprised at, when I have shared my most wonderful news, how many people said they will pop over for a visit.
Looks like I finally have the home I’ve dreamt of for years.
It feels good to know I am building something great. Breathing a long held dream into reality. All of the seeds I planted years ago are finally breaking the surface.
I’m excited for what the future holds and all that is happening now.
More posts to come.
