Out of order

by mssinglemama on May 28, 2010

The reason I have been so quiet lately has a little something to do with this…


And, yes, that is a white picket fence you’re seeing.

A white picket fence dividing the front yard from a perfect sidewalk that leads to a park, an elementary school and hiking trails. This house is, quite possibly, the most adorable little house you’ll ever see.


We started looking a few weekends ago, just looking… because there are still a few things that need to happen (eh-hem).  Anyhow, then we saw this place and – boom – we were sold. Perfect neighborhood, right price, not much square footage but we could manage. Then John Bear made an offer, and after a few rounds of negotiations we had a deal. Now we’re one day away from a home inspection and if all goes well, we’ll be moving in mid July.

I must admit I’m feeling a bit of shell shock right now.

My life as a single mom is going to end and Benjamin and I will no longer be just Benjamin and I. The memories will always be mine, but will they be his? Will he remember the past four years? So, there is a sadness as well.

I will miss just the two of us.

But I am embracing the excitement of what’s to come – all of it is so surreal and bursting with this potential that we are already living. Now we’re just going to put it all under one roof. And when you have a guy like this leading the charge, determined to lay the foundation for our future together as a family,


it makes everything feel that much better.

Onwards and upwards my friends… and into the next chapter.
