Patience

When I was on my mission my president told me to write a 30 page paper on patience.  (I’m not kidding).  Clearly I had to learn a lot about being patient, especially with my companions.  I still have it in storage and it is probably a pretty good paper.  The one thing I remember is that patience is one of the highest forms of godliness, right up there with charity and forgiveness.

No wonder it’s so hard!  No news today about the install of the cabinets which makes me think it won’t be done this week and then there is no way the house will be done the 31st.  Everything then is delayed but I don’t know for sure because nobody is returning my calls or texts about it.  The waiting to hear news, waiting to make plans, making plans but having back ups, is exhausting!

Plus, I feel doubly bad because my tenants also have to wait before they can get in their house but luckily they have been so nice and understanding.  It’s just hard for all of us to be patient.  Plus, it’s not just being patient for a house but a whole new life and experience.  Also, I still am nervous about the loan and hope nothing goes wrong.  The longer we wait the longer I have to stew over that.

I think if I could just get an install date on the cabinets I would feel much better about my timeline but as it is I am left with nothing but hopes that somehow they will pull it off and my move can go as planned.  Each day I don’t hear back the hope grows smaller and I grow more anxious.

I’m SO ready for all of this to be over and to have my house and life back.  It’s so hard to not know what’s going on in your house and to have things in other people’s hands and to be waiting on them.  Makes me want to go install the cabinets but that’s probably not a good idea!

Anyway, the waiting is making me crazy.  The mess is making me crazy!  The not knowing is making me crazy

What to do to survive these next few weeks?

    1. Thanks! Got good news and bad news today. Cabinets go in tomorrow but…counters not here until next week, so move in has been delayed by 2 weeks 😦 . January is going to be a long month for me but it’s only a few days and I’d rather have them do it right than rush. Still, waiting is not my favorite or best skill. Thank goodness for good friends.

        1. Very true! It’s sunk in more today and I’m okay with it. Yesterday was just one of those crazy days. Very intense.
