The Waiting Game

The last time I checked in I had nothing good to report. Not much has changed in the fact that we are still here and to this date do not have a closing date. Much has happened in the previous 14 days, but it still boils down to waiting for "any day."
Many a frustrated tear I have shed, but I am also trying to look at the positive. The situation is such that I have no control over anything to do with the sale of the home; the only thing I can do is try to focus on the good and wait it out. I am learning that you really don't need much to survive. Modern day conveniences are a wonderful thing, but they are that...convenient. I am thankful that the air mattress we've been sleeping on for three weeks is of wonderful quality...I haven't woken up on the floor in the middle of the night once! I am thankful for a kind neighbor who has lent me a pot and pan so that I can still cook dinner. The warm weather here has encouraged all the plants and flowers to bloom early, endowing us with not only eye candy but many a sweet juicy raspberry too (yummy!!!) And we've had extra time to spend with family and friends. I still want to get out of here as soon as possible and move on with our lives, but there is joy in the journey, even if I have to force myself to find it.
Enjoying the beach on a (non-crowded) Sunday afternoon

Rachel and Jake had a blast riding on the hand truck.

Asleep in the car...we had to use his ducky as a pillow to keep his little head from slumping over.

Brian in the moving truck...amazing how much stuff we actually have (even after de-junking!)

Jake likes to sit in the tires of the moving truck. I like the comparison of how big this monster truck really is!

At the water park with friends. He loves getting wet!

In the special rocking chair that Great Papa restored just for Jake.

Watching the sharks and turtles at the Aquarium.

Having fun with Uncle Gordon at the Aquarium.
