The sweetest things happened a little while ago…my college aged nephew text messaged me to go to the movies this weekend. He moved into the dorm this past Thursday, his mother and brothers came to visit this past weekend. Allan showed him his dorm and the campus. All were very proud of him. He is doing well,studying when I called, and seems to be making friends easily. Well, there are a bunch of angsty college kids with im, so he fits right in.
The house is still not unpacked, this week being a rush of activity as well. I took Monday night off and rested. Last night worked on a project for work, and tonight mild housework and unpacking. Tomorrow night will be getting the washing machine fixed (hopefully) while unpacking, Friday meeting a friend for happy hour, Saturday working all day, then picking up my nehew, Sunday the movies, then unpacking,then taking Alan back to the campus. Wow! Good stuff.
Life is a bit swirly right now. I feel like I am on the cusp of great things, but still feel a bit on unsure footing. There is so much to do, much to accomplish. I am in a strange place right now…It’s the land of Almost…almost unpacked,almost ready, almost done, ALMOST. It is a strange place to be. Strange because I have accomplished everything so far (the job, moving to the house, etc), but still feel so unsettled. And it’s not just because i am not unpacked, it’s something else that goes down deep. I have never felt this before. It is the feeling of Almost.
Maybe when I get settled and unpacked here it will not be so prevelent. I would llike to get a routine down (we Capricorns love routine), would like to have a steady relationship, and i guess a sense of order. Maybe that is what is missing, that sense of order.
