So, we have to move, now.
To a different house.
At the very middle of our year, there’s a black mold situation at the house and we need to go somewhere else.
I still remember when we first got to the house.
We named it “Club Shirley”. We unpacked, hung our clothes in the closet and our pictures on the wall. We organized all our stuff in the drawers. We looked for furniture and finally got our “home” ready. Everything was settled. I didn’t have to think about moving until July… not!
However, I don’t mind going to a new place, specially when it’s for health reasons! What’s really bothering me it’s thinking about all the moving process. Moving the furniture, packing all over again and take everything to other place just for couple months before we all have to pack again to go home.
(That’s us… escaping from black mold.)
Thinking about moving now, in this very moment, sounds so wrong and so bad timing and horrible… and blah blah meh meh! But, on the other side, going to a new place, may sound exciting. I know, what the heck is wrong with me?
Oh my God, I just thought of the kitchen stuff and groceries in the fridge. We have a lot of stuff.
Anyway, we are now waiting until we get a new house… and then, we’ll have to start that unwanted moving process. Meanwhile, I’ve been crashing some houses in what I call “Escaping Black Mold Tour”. All of us are staying at different places while we get - finally - our new Club Shirley.
And then… I started to think about it…deeply.
Don’t we want to loose weight but hate to go to the gym? We want a college degree but we don’t like to study. We want work experience but we are too lazy to get out and actually look for a job. We want to be grown ups but we don’t want to go through the process that will make us grow. Stepping out of our comfort it’s always a challenging process. And I don’t like the process. I want a house.
When I order something online, I usually get super excited. I refresh the UPS tracking website every 5 seconds… just to see that my package stills “in transit”.
Am I “in transit”? Is the house “in transit”?
It really feels like we have to start all over again. But, maybe that’s what we need so we can face what’s next in God’s plan. Amen? Amen!
So, bring it on “waiting for a house and moving process”!
