Between Residences

That is the best way I can describe it. I flew across country and am now staying at my parent's house with the kids. It was strange to leave our townhouse this morning. It doesn't really feel real that it will be a long time before we go back.

I have been wanting to post about the breakdown, death, and selling of our Jeep. Of my Jeep. I love that damn car. I have shed countless tears over the past few weeks because we had to sell it. I think it was a blessing that I didn't have to watch the new owner tow it off into the distance this afternoon. More on that later. I just can't go there right now.

So, I am without a home and without a car. Literally. Our place to rent is currently in limbo, and we have no transportation. Funnily enough, I am not really stressed out about either one. The having to buy a new car right now is shitty financially, but if the car died, it died. Eventually the housing situation will be nailed down, and I can live with my parents until it does. It's just kind of a funny situation to be in.

Wow - I hope the housing situation gets worked out SOON. There is nothing more stressful than being without your own place and without wheels. I'm sure it's all going to be fine. It wouldn't be a move without a shitload of stress, would it?

Love the MIL card, by the way ;-)

I've been out of town, but I'll catch up on your life here. Missed reading you!

Peace - D

It's great that you're not really stressed about either one! Are you sure you're not just in shock?

Shar said...

I was actually in that same situation almost 4 years ago.

It gets better and faster than you think.

@D: Glad to see you back!!

@Andrea: That very well could be! LOL This situation has been going on for a few weeks now, so I've had the time to go through the tears, outrage, and stress. I just don't have the energy to get worked up any more.

@Shar: I believe that. Our housing thing will either be fixed or in the shitter on Sunday. It is nice that we will have an answer by then. I am glad your situation got better.

Good luck and without sounding too Dr. Phil-esque, take it easy. Moving sucks and can drive normal sane people to acts of madness. So, if you're a little mad to start with...

Just A Girl said...

That just sucks...all the way around.

I know how you feel about the Jeep. My car is on it's last leg and I am horribly sad about it. I have driven it 10 years now, we belong together.

I have to say that if it was me, I'd be freaking out now. I'm so glad that you're OK and can't wait to hook up on Friday! :-)

Military Mom said...

I felt the same way about a certain rusted Dodge Omni about 15 years ago... So sad, when Little Diver WRECKED it!

Hope your move goes smoothly, I know it can be stressful. Just try to appreciate the humor in it, and know that this too shall pass.
