Did this painting last month before the madness hit the fan.

I feel I need to explain what has been going on with me. I have been going through some crazy feelings lately. I blame it on symptoms related to menopause, but who knows :)..... I've been real emotional and crying at the drop of a hat at everything.
This summer we decided to put our house on the market. We have been considering this for a long time. It was a hard decision. We listed it the end of August and got an offer the end of October. It is under contract so nothing is set in stone.
I've been reluctant to say anything about this because I don't want to jinx anything.  I'm stressed about the move because we do not have a place to go if we sell. We will have to put everything in storage and rent until we find something else. This was our decision because we did not want to  buy until we sold the old house.
I'm basically in limbo. I can't pack or do much until I know for sure the sale will go through.  I'm excited and sad at the same time. We have a couple of hurdles to go through first. It may all fall flat and the sale may not go through. Like they say "it's not over until the fat lady sings". With all the emotions I've been going through I'm not sure I care anymore. I'm exhausted.  If it sells it sells,  if not,.... oh well. I can live here another 25 years.
This sort of explains my absence here. I'm going crazy. I hate not knowing. I'll try to keep you posted but who knows if I'll have internet.


  1. Sounds like way too much fun. Not. I'm still in my first house and I may never move for the very reason of the hassle of trying to sell. Big hugs!

  2. Hey there Charlie. I have been wondering about you. Hope all goes the way you wwant and need it to go!!! We have missed you at IA but totally understand. I was going through the same thing and inded up on anti depressants. I feel better now.
    hang in there and keep in touch ok!!\


  3. I am so glad you got an offer on your home. Ours has been on the market for over a year and we have only had 2 showings. *sigh*

    Hopefully everything will work out for you! We have just pulled ours off the market for the winter and will try again in the spring.


  4. Menopause is one hell of a crazy does get really does!!

    You'll find "just the place" that is perfect for you and you will know it the minute you see it. ♥

  5. Nice work, but if it had a title it would be more wonderful.
