Waiting on pins and needles

Well we did it. We put an offer on a new house that is bigger than the one we have. Now we have to wait all weekend to see if we got it. I am so torn from minute to minute. The idea of leaving our neighborhood is a hard one but I know it will probably be for the best long term. But the worst thing that scares me is the idea of having two mortgages. Yikes. So in the next week we will know if we have a new house and our old one will be on the market. Then the worst part of all is the actual packing and moving along with dealing with all the showings. Geez, what do I feel this minute. I guess it's scared and a bit panicked and even a little excited. Is that a normal feeling to have? I don't know but that is what I am feeling.

Pre School

My youngest son has started pre-school two days a week now. While I am glad of the little extra time that it gives me. I am at the same time heartbroken that he is now one step further away from me. He brings me such joy, a very loud joy. He is also able to bring me such frustration along with all the joy. For example we were doing his "homework" for school and his ideas and mom's idea about what we should be doing aren't always in sync with each other. So since it's just preschool (and his first week of it) I decided to go ahead and let his idea be the one we went with. I just hope he can explain the things he is going to share with the class tomorrow other wise there is no telling how his circle time will go. And I must confess that yes it was very hard for mommy not to have his homework in perfect order. But boy is he proud of his own work, which brings me more of that joy I mentioned.

A Day Without a Car

Do you remember what it was like before you had a license and car to drive? Well today I am without my car since for some reason it refuses to start again. (At least this time it was parked in the driveway instead of at the store like last time) Obviously I am a bit annoyed with the whole situation. Mainly since I actually had things that I needed to get done before tomorrow and now will be out driving around late tonight after my husband comes home. It just reminds me how much we are missing by not having a good means public transportation in my town. I went an entire year with out a car for transportation when we lived overseas and was never as inconvenienced as today. I just hopped on the city bus and got where ever I needed to be. So today I am missing that small bit of luxury that having a working car brings along with a reliable city bus system. Hopefully my car will be back and running in a reliable way again soon. It totally stinks when you are stranded with three small children and stuck waiting for help.
