March has gone by so incredibly quickly. It feels like there are things that just happened yesterday, like the March Levo Pittsburgh event, though now it’s actually two weeks ago. Does that happen to anyone else? Ugh! Just when I feel caught up, things sneak up and tap me on the shoulder and say, “Ha, thought you had a handle on me, didn’tcha?”
Last weekend, I spent hours clearing things out of my father’s house. There’s still more work to be done, but it’s getting cleaner. It’s a sad and surreal experience. I’ve lived in different places and grown up in my mom’s house, too, but my first memories are in that house. It’s hitting me that I’ll probably never read a book on the back porch underneath all the trees or see the really big Christmas tree in the living room…and I’m now going to cry. So onward with the other things!
Seriously, the small things. Like the ice cream glacier Jonathan brought me on Tuesday night. (For those of you who aren’t near a cute little mom-and-pop ice cream stand, a glacier is like a Blizzard – I hope you’re all familiar with DQ. If you don’t know your ice cream, we can’t be friends.)
Also suuuper appreciating when traffic isn’t that bad in the mornings. I’ve been leaving my house on the early side, a little after 7am, just so I can avoid traffic. I get to work about 30 minutes early, but I’d rather do that than sit in rush hour traffic. I hate traffic. Boo hiss traffic.
My blog blah blah blah I say this every week and nothing ever gets done. Ugh! I just need someone to tell me how to make the content area wider. I can probably figure out the other CSS changes myself, but I’m just not figuring out how to make this one (kinda big deal of what I want this to look like) change.
I have a co-worker who likes to sing one line of popular songs over and over again. That results in me leaving work with “Uptown Funk” stuck in my head on repeat. Not cute.
Quite honestly, I have no idea what to expect anymore. I know I wrote about getting back into hyper planning mode last week, but I have no idea how to plan for half of the big things that are looming over me. I have no idea how to sell a house. Or help to clear out a house.
So that’s what I’ve been doing. I’ve also been reading a lot. If you missed it, I’m giving away a copy of Hausfrau to a lucky reader. Check out this post to see a review and enter!
