Doing the LIMBO

sunshine-card.jpgHotel living is fun for the first few days.  NO beds to make or meals to cook and someone cleans up after you.  Today is day 9 and I am ready to cook and clean.  I have nothing to do in my spare time.  I read my books and magazines.  Finished what I could of 3 needle felting projects.  I would have gotten further along but I broke the needles.  The tool comes with 3 of them.  They slowly broke one at at time and I cannot find the refill for it here.  I can buy a new one that has refills available here but I do not remember seeing it at home.  So my dilema is do I buy the new tool here since I know I will be able to get refills for it or do I purchase refills for my current one?  I am simply ready to be in one city.  I will admit I am a tad bit of a control freak.   I like to have things a certain way and I like to have them all in order and be able to plan ahead.  Well right now I have no control over what is going on and I do not like it.  I am a planner and that is all there is to it.  Okay enough whining.  I will deal with what I can and let the rest slide.  I also really am missing home amd we are only here on a temporary basis.  I can not imagine what it is going to be like when we are actually moved in.  The housing market is unbelievable here.  I knew it would be a bit more expensive but I did not know how much.  Who knows where we will end up?   

 The card is one that I made last year.  I thought it was pretty cute then and I still like it now.

    I can’t see the card. I sympathize with your being a nomad for the time being. Soon you will be settled again and developing a new vision of home. I hope the transition goes well.
