Well, it’s not quite 11:30 p.m. and it feels like 2 in the morning. I’ve quit painting the kitchen for tonight; have to remember; “baby steps”, and I shall continue another night.
There isn’t really a whole lot on the list of tasks we need to do to get our house ready to sell, but each task takes quite a bit of time, as I am finding out. Thankfully a good friend of mine came over to help me get started on painting the kitchen; that was enough of a boost to get me on my way and I am grateful for her help.
Now, the rest of it is up to me, while paul tends to the other tasks, like patching the walls (there’s not too much that needs patching, thankfully) and tending to the back yard, which entails possibly finishing putting up the fence.
Needless to say, I’m physically exhausted right now, but emotionally, I am excited and impatient to find our new home. There are many memories here in our Mt. Vernon Ave. home and I will treasure them and take them with me. I think I’m okay with leaving the house behind and having a new home to make more memories in. It is my plan to stay in that next one until the kids are grown, if God wills it. I don’t want to move around like I did growing up. I am ready to keep the roots which have started here in Cincinnati; it’s about time I had some healthy, lengthy roots in my life.
