We need to rest up

We had two showings today and passed the time at the park with friends. It was a much-needed outside break. I just couldn't wake up all day and did get in a tiny nap when we got home, which seemed to help. We are all going to bed early tonight.

I took some time to go over the calendar for the next few months and can't believe how full the days are getting. We have something every day next week from eye doctor checkups, the dentist, back to school hair cuts, the next trip for Noah and me to Seattle. Thankfully this weekend is empty of commitments. We need to rest up.

Today I was in the car for two hours with a pretty severe headache, anxiety, and my two chattiest children. They were asking me really sweet things, so I powered through.

I was glad to get home and burrow up in our house because everyone in the outside world was just too much. From the guy riding my tail wayyy too close on 101 for the longest time even though he knew there was someone right in front of me and it was a no passing lane AND we passed a mangled guard rail from an accident yesterday as well as a police car attending to another accident, to the lady in the grocery store who rudely maneuvered in front of me and the kids who were waiting patiently for the MAN WITH A SEEING EYE DOG to pick out his eggs with the help of the grocery clerk. She tried to wheel her cart between him and his dog before the employee kindly moved the man aside. So the kids and I go when there was enough room to be polite and head down the aisle we needed. Then here comes that same lady in a hurry and she almost runs down the kids. I wanted to confront her about her horribly rude behavior so much but wanted to just get far away from her more. And I had just been going over manners with the kids minutes before. They were the best behaved humans in the place.

ANYWAY. Home now and enjoying the quiet. We have a showing tomorrow but I am sort of wishing we could just put this house on hold until we get more prospects up there because if we sell this house where in the world would we even go? I'll probably straighten up a few things and then retreat to bed with a book. Everything else is just too much right now.

The physical and mental exhaustion I feel after today is indescribable. All four kids are registered for school. The headache/sore fingers from trying to open a locker (later we would be given the correct combination) are just starting to let up. It was so tempting to declare cereal for dinner but I zombie shopped through the grocery store and made a huge and healthy meal and then collapsed for the night. Jeff was supposed to see two super potentially good houses tomorrow but they're now under contract. I'm not discouraged but kind of am, just would be nice to know where we're going to live. I'm spent. And going to bed.
