Losing the battle to impatience

It’s been a good day – don’t get me wrong.  But I’m more than ready for it to be over now.  My boss has been a bit more high strung than usual today, the final push on some crazy deadlines looms overhead and all I can think about, is that I’d rather be somewhere else.  Where?  Not sure.  Napping?  Traveling?  Sailing?  Cooking?  Something other than managing a team of folks who are over-stressed and over-worked.  🙂


Maybe it’s just impatience.

I’m impatient to move forward in life.  From a career standpoint, life is damn good.  From a financial standpoint too.  My kids are happy and healthy… things are great.  But this whole House thing has me tied up in knots of impatient anxiety.  I just want to find a house and buy it already.  I want to be moved in already.  Maybe it’s like a biological clock – for being a grown up?  🙂  Tick-tock, tick-tock…. oh for god sakes just HURRY UP ALREADY!?!  It’s only a few months… I know I can hang in there.  Heck, not like I have any other choice.

I’m feeling a bit restless.  I’m one of those types of people who makes a goal and walks down the path to make it real.  I’m a dreamer – and yet, I’m also a do-er.  Sometimes, I find myself getting a bit frustrated with the time it takes to effectively “do” a dream.  I tell myself to relax, to wait, it’ll happen, if something’s meant to be – it will be.  I try not to future trip.  Today – I’m not doing that very well.

I need a hug.  And someone to tell me to take a chill pill.  🙂

Much love to you in Neverland.

  1. So, take the chill pill. Because when you do find a house and put in an offer it still takes time. You may not get the first , second or even third house. So sit back and just enjoy the house hunting. Find a couple that you like. Pick them all apart, location, cost, size and check out the neighbors and hood!
    I wish we would have held out for a garage, and had our roof really inspected. (Hence the new roof this last week, and need to repaint 2 ceilings. And I really wished we checked out the neighbors. They are okay, but kinda possessive of the way it has always been.
    And then when you get the house, sort of, there is still all of the closing and paperwork. And that can take up to 3 months.
    So sit back, grab a glass of fine wine. And just enjoy the journey! Because when it ends, you will be very, very happy!
    Love you,
    And proud of you getting it together to even go after this dream!
