Can't Do Condo!

It has been near to forever since I've been here.

Life has spun out of control in the last few days. I'm going to do an overview of it all. I know I'll miss some important parts of my wonderful, but exhausting life.

House/Condo:
I met with the lawyer today to sign the paperwork for the closing, which is tomorrow. Cute boy and I spent a bit of time at the house today trying to clean it up. He doesn't see the reasoning of my putting forth so much time and effort. This is the first home for the people moving in. I don't want to leave it a mess, nor would I want to move in to a mess. It doesn't seem proper.

The condo is a nightmare. I hate it hate it hate it. I've lived in my own home for 14 years and to now have to live in a shared dwelling is more than this mother princess can stand. Cute Boy and I are acquaintances of the person that rented this condo prior to us. In a word - YUCK! In all honesty, I want Cute Boy to sweep the condo for mini cameras! LOL No seriously, I do.

Daisy seems to be the one adapting the best. I find that downright hilarious since she is the one I was most worried about.

Is it bad that we've only been there for 2 days and I'm already counting down.

New House:
I can't remember if I mentioned it or not, but our original house plans were too big for the lot. Our lot was represented as 50' frontage but is really only 46'. We've had to rework the plans which had to then be surveyed again and then back to the permit office. Our plans were presented to the permit officer yesterday with explanation from our contractor. The officer feels for us and is going to try and fast track our plans and permit. We are hoping for next week to have a ground break. Imagine that! WOOOHOOO!!!

Princess:
She is not liking the condo living all that much, not that I can blame her. She has been spending the night at her best friend's a lot and I can completely understand her desire to do so. I'd be staying at her best friend's too if I could.

She started at her new high school on Tuesday and loves it. She is really happy in her new school. Happy Princess = easier time for mother.

Queenie:
She is in a very bad place. Her relationship of 2 years has ended and it is difficult for her. I knew it wouldn't last, but she believed it was forever. You know, the folly of youth. I hate to see her suffering a broken heart and the reasons for the split are many, as much as she may only see one reason. I had the vantage point of seeing the relationship from the view of a parent and an outsider. It was easy for me to see, from a mother's view and from my own experiences, this relationship was toxic. I'm at a loss as what to do to help. I would love for these changes to bring her home, back to school and on the path to a normal teenager. I do not foresee it happening, but a mother can hope, right?!

Stitching:
I've not been stitching much. As much as I'm sad about my lack of stitching time I understand it. I miss it though. When I do pick up my stitching again, hopefully this evening, it'll be like reuniting with a long lost friend.


All the stuff that I have going on, I have to say, I love my life. My life is not always easy, but I'm so happy. I'm blessed in more ways than I can count. I have a boyfriend that I adore and in him I find the strength of the likes of which I'm still amazed. My children are different from one another, but two young ladies I'm proud to have in my life. There is not a single thing I'd change that would take from anywhere but here!
