As I have told you before, Jack and I are currently living with my now separated parents, waiting for the house to sell. Well, it seems we may finally have a buyer. On Monday, we will know for sure, as my parents are deciding if they will accept the offer that has been made today. We have another interested party looking at the place tomorrow, but unless they make a higher offer by Monday, then it will be more than likely, in 4 to 6 weeks, we will finally be moving from this cold, wet, miserable place, to the tropics.
So this is why, right now, at 10pm, I am writing here instead of sleeping, like I should be. Ever since the phone call this afternoon, my stomach has been churning. I desperately want to move away from here, so the anticipation that it may be about to happen has been too much for my already tender stomach. I know that once the contract is signed, it is going to be organised, and maybe not so organised, chaos for the next month or so, luckily, seeing Jack and I only moved here about 7 months ago, the vast majority of our belongings are packed anyhow, they haven’t been unpacked since we moved. But it is the rest of the house, Mum and Dads stuff, the stuff they have been arguing over as they divide the assets. As much as I don’t want to be involved in all that, someone has to help them pack, they can argue about who is taking what, but I really don’t want, or need their crap. So as I said, it’s going to be a chaotic few weeks.
I spoke with Jack about it tonight before we went to bed. I showed him the area we are going, what’s around, and the new school he will likely be going to. I told him, that until we know for sure, which will be Monday hopefully, he mustn’t tell anyone, he got upset because he thought he wouldn’t be able to say goodbye to his friends, so I had to explain that even though we will know when we will be moving on Monday, it will be at least 4weeks before we move, so he will have plenty of time to say goodbye. He made new friends here very quickly in the 7 months we have been here, so I am sure it won’t take him long to settle again into new friendships at the new place. This next move, I really hope, is the last one now until he finishes school in grade 12.
Anyhow, I will now try once again to go to sleep, my first attemt before giving up was for 2 hours, just tossing and turning in bed, so I hope now, I will go to sleep without too much hassle.
