It’s been a while…

I’ve not been in the right frame of mind lately to write much and things have been pretty hectic with moving house and working out a new routine with being further away from our usual amenities.

Holidays as well are always hard for me, which I have mentioned before. I am struggling with some depression, and haven’t been back to see my psychiatrist since the initial visit. Again, things have just been crazy around here!

We are finally moved into our new house though, everything is coming together slowly, but boxes are being emptied and a few days out of the many that have passed since we moved, my laundry pile has only been a small mound rather than its usual colossal mountain. Jinsey is acting his normal self now, he’s eating more, socializing and is completely off of all of his medication, including the anxiety meds which were making him act rather strangely. He will be on a prescription diet for the rest of his life, but it’s a small price to pay for his health and to have a happy cat snuggling up on the bed at night.

Christmas is literally a week away and I feel mostly prepared for it. I don’t cook Christmas dinner so I don’t have that worry on my plate, but I did host dinner for the family this past week. I’ve bought the kids presents apart from a few pairs of pajamas each and I already sent a small box of goodies to England for my mom, last month. Curtis and I don’t buy each other gifts, but he did get me a new jogging stroller so I can start running with Mia more often. I have taken it out for a spin a few times and now I just need to be consistent in my exercising to get the most use out of it!

Really life if just kind of a blur right now, the days are kind of melting into one another and I am hoping that the new year brings with it more clarity, more peace of mind and less anxiety.

However you celebrate this holiday season, I hope that you are not alone. I hope that whatever you do, you have a smile on your face and love in your heart.

For Sale

We put our house up for sale today. We moved in August 2013 and have loved it here. It’s a beautiful house, in a beautiful neighborhood with beautifully sweet neighbors. But, we have outgrown it. It’s the right amount of rooms in the wrong configuration and we are in a good spot right now to sell and look for our forever home. We want to find something that will last with the growth of our children and the changing seasons of our life.

Calvin is excited for a new house and a new room and especially the possibility of a back garden, seeing as right now we just have a small concrete patio. He’s had a blast looking around model homes, he is always curious as to whether the fruit decor is plastic or not!

This weekend is our open house and I’m hoping that we will get some great interest. So here we are, embarking on another adventure!
