It’s very difficult right now to sit down and write a coherent blog post. I have lots of notes in my planner. Lots of ideas for posts to write, DIY projects to do and photograph so I can make tutorials, lots of things I want to review and share with you … the list goes on and on. But right now, my brain is on overload and this blog is being temporarily neglected. (Sorry.)
There are such huge shifts taking place in my life. Ever since Myles was born, really, I’ve been in transition. It suddenly became very important to me to begin making a lot of my dreams happen. The next two months begin the journey toward finally living the life I’ve always wanted: living in the country, having a “homestead” (even if it is tiny), living more self-sufficiently, and simplifying life in general. I’m really (really, really!) excited to share all of it with you. (This blog is called Life in BETA, after all — constantly evolving and improving!) I’m just not there yet.
This weekend I’ll be doing my best to finish a lot of the painting at the new house. I wanted everything done and pristine, but it’s just not going to happen. Instead, I’m just making sure all the trim is painted and all the walls that will have major pieces of furniture or appliances blocking them are done. Everything else will have to wait because we’re going to be moving the first weekend in October.
We’re downsizing quite a lot in our move, and I am having a very hard time visualizing where things are going to go, so I decided the best way to do it would be to move all the necessities then go back to the old house and pick and choose the other things to keep. Then we’re going to have a big household sale at the old house. Hopefully that will get rid of everything!
I’m hoping to avoid having to get a storage unit, but I’m a horrible, sentimental keeper-of-stuff. I guess we’ll see how it goes…
Life is going to be very busy in the next year or so. The house needs work and I have so many plans. My heart is happy and I’m excited to start it all, but this final month of transition is going to be crazy! Bring it on.
