Life in Purgatory


I’m apologizing in advance that this will be a depressing post. 

Feel free to not read any further.


You’ve been forewarned.

Still here?


So, I’m starting to feel a little bit like a stale cracker. 

Bland to begin with, but now even more irrelevant because of, you know, the stale-ness.


I am just so stinkin’ tired of this not-knowing-when-we’ll-move state of being. 

As well as all the miles that my poor husband is racking up with his semi-weekly trips back home.

Yes, we miss him terribly, but it’s almost to the point where it makes more sense for him to stay put, and just come home once a week.  *sigh*


Noelle brought a packet home from school today requesting that all families let them know if they’ll be returning to WR next year. 

*sniff*  I wish.  But then again, who knows?  Will we still be here at that time?  We didn’t think she’d make it through even part of her first grade year here, and she has 7 days left until the end of the year. 

We signed her up for softball – late.  We were hesitant to pay the money (in February), and didn’t think it would be fair to have her commit to a team that we weren’t sure we’d be around to commit to.

Bible school?  Hmmm.  It’s in July.  Do we register?  This time we’ll be paying for two, since Kae’s old enough and sure would enjoy the experience.

If we’re going to be around for it.

Do I look for jobs in New Town, or do I continue to play the waiting game and risk losing the opportunity?

Kae needs to be registered for preschool this fall.  Where do I do that?  What if we’re too late if/when we do move, and she misses out on THAT opportunity? 

*Not that it’s a huge deal, since Noelle didn’t go, and she’s doing great.  But, with the way that Kae is progressing, she is TOTALLY ready for some further stimulation, and would greatly benefit from the experience.*

Vacation?  It’s hard to plan for that when we don’t know if/when we’ll need to be around to close on our house, or how many days we might need to save to get our new house ready.


*Heavy sigh*

I am just so tired of living life aimlessly.

I need some direction.


Dear God,

Could I please have some arrows?

Thanks and praise,

  1. I’d be complaining constantly on my blog if I were in your shoes…so do it as much as you need to here.
    What an incredibly frustrating situation. *Supposedly* home prices and sales are starting to go up because they’ve been down/flat for so long. So there may be hope…plus more people look and buy in the summer so they don’t disrupt school cycles.

    Anyway. My heart goes out to you.
