Am I ready? We won't have a fridge, oven, microwave, washer OR dryer in our new place. All the walls are STARK white (can we say revisiting student housing wall whiteness nightmares) and the lawn is currently all dirt. The clothes closets all need shelving units in them. There is not even a pegboard in the garage to hand up a rake.
Am I ready to take this on? Do I have the energy? Do I have the stamina? Do I have the ability to remind myself that Rome wasn't built in a day? Do I have the patience to deal with my kids surrounded, ONCE AGAIN, by totally and utter chaos????
Do I have the heart to throw out our couches that got invaded by mice? The couches that I love?
Will we have money to put in air conditioning for the summer?
Will we have money, someday, to buy ourselves a place to sit our behinds in our living room?
Should we invest in some camping chairs for our living room?
How am I going to organize the kitchen? Do I really lack an intuition for kitchen organizing?
Can I bear to look in box after box and see the never-ending randomness that is inside them?
CAN I DO IT????? I must take a deep breathe, and just TRY to convince myself I can do it!!
