Betwixt and Between

How can I be so incredibly busy yet so BORED at the same time? I'm still packing and cleaning and on the phone all the time with one person or another regarding our move but at the end of the day I'm still so incredibly anxious and IMPATIENT about the whole thing and just want the day to be here already!

I am so over you Bartlett.

I'm at the point where mentally I have already moved on from this space. All the little things that personalize my home are wrapped up in plastic and stored away in the garage. Waiting. I drive around my neighborhood and it doesn't even feel like I live here anymore. Everything is hovering in this in-between realm and I don't feel like I'm grounded anyplace at all. Once we move I know that it will take some time for our house to feel like "ours" but it is much more exciting to be building something as opposed to tearing something down.

I bought some red paint today for my new dining room. That lifted my spirits. I have lived in a house without a red room for waaaay too long.


  1. Good-bye Bartlett. The in-between phases are awful. I hate patience. At least the thought of painting again is exciting! Red rooms are great!

  2. I'm beginning to feel the same way. Our house goes on the market this time next week, but I'm already so done (all over again) with Rockford, it's not even funny. :)

  3. Those in-between moments are so difficult. I travel so much for my job that it sometimes seems like I'm in a constant state of finding roots, so I know how tough those transitions are. Good luck with your move!!!
