Thank you for your kind words and suggestions yesterday. I honestly think I will feel better once the Big Presentation (next Friday) is over and done with.
I also recognize (more now) that some of these problems can be solved with delegation and/or $. And the plan of waiting until we are moved to send holiday (2022 New Years’ Cards, slightly late) is pure genius. One less thing to think about right now!
5 quick things on a Friday:
1- I finished Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro. I definitely liked this book in concept and felt truly moved when it ended, but there were some plot elements that didn’t make sense to me. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say more. I’d say it’s a worthy read and would be fantastic for a book club, because I have lots to say about it!
2- I’m still off of Instagram. And happy about it.
4- I realized my kids do not have pants (well, not many pairs anyway- especially C + G). GAP and sometimes Boden are my usual kid go-tos but the urgency here is likely going to mean a Target run. This is what happens when your weather remains balmy into November and then you realize that NC weather is going to be quite a shock to these FL systems!
5- In the midst of everything, we did a walkthrough our soon-to-be house! (It was also inspected + appraised). Josh and I had honestly forgotten many details about it and we were very happy to see that we still really love it.
I’m dreading some aspects of home ownership (mostly paying for expensive things when they inevitably break and arranging for people to repair them — though this has been largely Josh’s domain in the past). But I’m also excited. Annabel was even watching Organize 365 Kids videos — she’s very excited about setting up her new room. I guess it will have fun aspects to it!
