Not only is this a diversion in my posts, it's a diversion in my life. 

It's official. 

My house has a for sale sign in the front yard now. 

boo hoo  We have to move to SW Georgia so the dr can complete his training.  We'll only be there two years and after that, who knows where we'll land. So I might as well put on my "big girl panties" and roll with the flow. 
We just bought this house a year ago and never dreamed we'd be moving so soon.  But... we have to go where there's a better opportunity for dr and, ultimately our family, as he'll have a better schedule.  
Ugh!  Hate having to stress over keeping the house spotless all the time. Good news is I've already had 2 inquiries with 2 showings.  Pray we can sell quickly in this slow market!

Saturday, I stood at the glass screen door and watched as dr drove the stakes in the ground.  A lot went through my mind in that moment.  All the days I've scoured thrift and Goodwill to find the perfect pieces, the flowers I've planted, sitting on the back porch listening to the crickets or watching the boys play football, having wonderful parties, grill outs and so many more memories.  All in just a short year.  I love my home, no matter where it may be.  And the next house will be my home just as much as this one.

Maybe you think I'm getting nostalgic too quick but I have to get it out of my system now so I can get busy with the job at hand.  I won't look back again until moving day when we pull out.  Then all these thoughts and emotions will come washing over me at once.  I'll cry, maybe for 1 mile, maybe for 10.  Then I'll dry it up and dream of my next place.
