Blurry Days

Life seems to somehow be moving at an incredibly fast, and yet impossibly slow, pace. How so?

Our days here are widdling down to a few short weeks. We expect to be packing it up and heading out by mid-August. Each day is planned out as we try to pack in as much sight seeing and breathing in all that we love about this end of the country. I won't lie to you, there's been many, many tears.

We have a weekend trip planned to PEI and a house hunting trip. Then, I have to somehow pack in a birthday party for my youngest (which I haven't even started to plan!) and my eldest is having one last big blow out sleepover. There's also one last hourrah for me with the fab friends I've made. All in a matter of.......oh, 3 weeks or so.

On the one hand, it seems to be zooming by and the time to leave feels like it's pressing upon me and breathing heavily down my back. On the other, I don't do well without a plan and currently, a new home and a date to move are up in the air. The pieces of that puzzle haven't yet found their place and that drives an OCD Virgo like me a tad nutso. Each day I search MLS for that "perfect" home, ranging from the bottom of our budget to the top and each day-I'm less than thrilled.

As I've done this two times already, I know things will fall into place and we'll be settled and happy come this time a few months to a year from now, but right now? It's a little stressful and teary and exciting all at once.

I apologize in advance for spotty blogging, but I promise to drag you along with me every step of this long, tedious process.


  1. I hope you enjoy your last few weeks here (it's the perfect time of year!) and then come back and visit us! :)

    You're right, everything will work out but I can understand how stressful this must be. I am a planner too and would want to have everything arranged, etc.

  2. We're getting to the finish line-finally! Then will start unpacking, painting, setting up and school etc. It's going to be a whirlwind few months..but keeping busy will also keep me from heartbreaking longing for Halifax. :)
