First day of Spring

today is the first day of Spring.....so where is the sunshine?? at least there is no rain today, it is supposed to come tomorrow. I wanted to get into my garden soon. My pear tree needs a hair cut...the suckers are so relentless! and my raspberries needed to be tied up like 3 weeks ago!! My roses also need a little attention and my roderdendrums!! yesterday it was beautiful in the morning...lots of sunshine.....but I got stuck inside doing some deep cleaning!! by that I mean like under the beds and in the closets kind of cleaning!!

We have an investor coming through our house tomorrow afternoon. He is looking to buy another house to either renovate and flip or buy as a rental.....I don't know if our house is what he is looking for... but we will find out! I am nervous about it. I am glad though that I don't have to clean the house like I would if it was being looked at by someone who would actually live in the house!! you know de-clutter clean the baseboards!! that kind of clean!

I am kind of bummed that both of the properties up North have sold on us! we just moved too slow but because we can't move anywhere until summer, there is no need to rush. There isn't much up there right now that we like. I was going to do the 9 hour drive tomorrow and come back Sat. but with this investor coming thru Wed. I need to stick around.

I really don't like the all consuming brain time that moving and even preparing to move takes!!! kind of is always there and is considered for taking on any new responsibilities and making plans in the summer! Oh well...............what can you do...............but wait and keep getting the house ready at the same time. I guess when the right place comes we will know, which can be confusing cuz we could really see ourselves in the last 2 places......ugh......

For now I will just enjoy the Spring and the budding flowers and the blossoms on the trees....get my house into shape oops almost started rolling on the floor, holding my ribs in laughter... no I can do this!! right Shash!!! I have everything I need to do it! I am capable of cleaning the house! I have all the resources I need!!! whew....sorry little pep talk!

on a side note: we watched North Country last night. I didn't really know what it was about. I thought it was just about unions and fair treatment....it is more than that. Part of her story is my story.....things she said that she had felt...was me.....I was bawling...J was like oops do you want to come cuddle me??? I was crying pretty hard. It is a good movie but a heavy one if you have had a similar experience. I don't want to "give away" the movie but if you have read my blog then you know my story about Morgan and how she came to be.......enough said! I know I have had healing in my life but I wonder if you ever get over the emotion of it completely? You have a growing living reminder and yet what she said when she is sitting on the stairs at the very end of the movie talking to her son...... was exactly what I felt. She was mine and nothing to do with the ugliness of how she came to be, it didn't matter, she was all mine.....

Sorry those two properties sold, but I'm sure others you like will come along when the time is right. Good Luck with the guy thats coming to see the house.

Hugs, I dont remember hearing of a movie by that title before. Considering my past, i would probably cry also.

Hugs Suz

Donna came over for coffee this morning and she told me about the movie and how it reminded her of your story, I haven't seen it yet. Charleze was up for an Oscar for it wasn't she? I thought it was also about a girl miner...

Hey, too bad about the houses selling, something will definately come up when you want it though! I so hear you on the house cleaning, it is nice that it is an investor coming through and you don't have to do as much! I could never imagine moving at this point!
I will have to check out that movie, I've never heard of it before (I am sooo out of the loop)

I think everyone is ready for spring.. I don't think we're going to get it soon though.

I don't know that you'll ever completely get over it.. I think our pasts are part of who we are. The wounds heal, but there is always a little scar.. but that's life.

Hugs.
