Arghhhh!! ADD ADHD and all this too!
We’re selling our house and moving to a wonderful community, El Castillo. We’re excited about it.
But at the moment, it’s like living in a hurricane and an earthquake at the same time.
We’re restaging our house – i.e., totally rearranging – for better showing.
Each showing means cleaning, neating, and shoving everything into drawers and closets. A headache.
Then bring it all back out so we can actually live here, until the next showing.
And monitoring the remodeling of our new apartment.
In the meantime, I’m trying to keep up with my quiet time, exercise, writing, blogging, learning new medicines, learning new Spanish songs for church, studying Spanish and guitar.
Strategies for turmoil:
1. Realize and accept that I can’t do it all; this is not life as usual.
2. Make the quiet time and the exercise priorities; then try to do one thing after that.
Puryear’s rules of human nature number three (or maybe it’s number four. I can’t keep up with them) –”When we’re under stress, the first thing we do is give up doing the things that help us cope with stress.”
3. We’re going to take a few days off and go to a resort, and do nothing. Taking breaks is a great strategy.
Puryear’s rule of human nature number five or so:
“Nothing will test a marriage like moving.”
Oh, by the way:
