has anyone seen my big girl panties? i know i saw them around here somewhere. i know they'll turn up. i have an a.p.b. out on them right now.
on saturday, i move into my new home. to put it lightly, i have minor organizational dysfunction. i have lots of books about how to be organized, but i can't find them. couple that with an innate thrill of a last minute challenge, and you have me. 11 pm the night before i move with nothing packed and willingly embracing the challenge of getting it all done tomorrow morning! in three hours!
i am a first time solo home buyer, so this is a huge step for me! cee and jay had their first preview tonight, and the house received their stamp of approval. they had no trouble at all picking which bedroom they wanted and already had ideas about where some of their things would go. there is a huge play scape in the backyard, so that kind of sealed the deal for them.
(huge sigh of relief)
so today - and all this week - i have been thankful for the strength and resilience that my girls (and all kids for that matter) have. at the same time, i know that the 'idea' of a new house is a temporary fix of excitement that will eventually morph into many questions about divorce and why's and what if's. and maybe in the midst of the questions that will undoubtedly arise, i will find those missing big girl panties as i unpack and adjust to a new way of life.
for today, i remain thankful for the strength and enthusiasm that generally encumber my beautiful baby girls! they illuminate my soul.
