"If your rice bowl is full, then you are blessed."

I'm whiny, but I've resolved myself to what must take place.
I am blessed. Stressed, but blessed.
My rice bowl is full...
So what's going on?
I'm stupid busy.
*The buyers have decided that they would like my furnishings, however, I went on a crazy packing spree when they were trying to jerk me around and I refuse to unpack anything for the 2nd time. So I've spent the evening tagging the items that I haven't packed to indicate it won't be going into the moving truck. I'm happy with the price I will be paid, but feeling a little regret over one piece that I didn't really want to let go of. I priced it really high thinking they wouldn't want it and in the end, they did.
*We've bargained ourselves some golf cart parking in my garage for our employee, in exchange for pool care service.
*I've met with 2 new other employees for a smooth transfer of another contract that we have.
*I spent the last 2 weeks finishing up dental, pediatric and dermatology appts for all the kids.
*I spent today with my fabulous in laws helping me remove certain items that I refused to include in the contract, such as: a few light fixtures that I love, wooden closet organizers, a
few ignoramus wall hangings that I couldn't lift by myself and watching my FIL be my pool boy=0) It's been in need of some TLC, but there's only one of me and I just haven't had time to fool with it.
We are looking forward to Daddy coming home. I need him & so do the kids...especially one scared, confused little girl who is taking a few steps back and needing to be repouched as she trusts that every time I step outside without her, I will return.
She is so strong and yet so weak.
She is sturdy and yet so fragile.
She is my superhero.

p.s. - Low is just BESIDES HERSELF when I tell her about what is going on.

Glad you will soon be back together again as a family. Hope the rest of the packing and move goes smoothly.

I am feeling your brand of overwhelmed...to the core.

I'm also sad, I must admit...to see you leave paradise...lived there myself for a while, and loved it. still love it. always will.

Good news is, new beginnings are sometimes just what the doctor ordered - it was for us.
