An Update Thing

I say it over and over but I really do miss and want to use this space to write but then..I don’t. Part of it is just being out of the habit and part of it is trying to temper what I do/don’t say. But here we are.

So what have I been doing? A lot and nothing. Photographing a little, definitely not as much as I want to be. That is 100% a post for another day.

We’re looking for a house. A HOUSE! It’s exciting and nerve-wracking all at once. On the 4th of July we had an offer accepted for about 3 hours. For 3 hours we were beside ourselves until our realtor (who is awesome and if you need one in the DC/MD/NoVa area – ask me!) called to let us know that the contractor’s entire basement renovation was not permitted which means we had to walk away. Thankfully, I had two parties to go to and so I was mostly distracted but the next day the disappointment settled in nicely. I’m largely over it now, and we keep on keeping on. Send me good vibes :D

My Mom is scheduled to have surgery to repair a hernia that is causing horrible reflux in a few weeks. I am nervous. She seems fairly calm about it though, so I’m going to try to project that for her.

Otherwise, lots of the same. Needing desperately to motivate and give my days more structure. Trying to stop repeating that and actually do it.
