No, I didn’t drop off the face of the earth! My husband and I went out of town for a couple of days and then I just decided to take a little break from posting yesterday. We’ve been making some big decisions the past few days and are relieved that they are made.
We went out of town to look at houses about ninety minutes north of here. We have been praying and talking about moving for a number of years and decided to look into it. However, we’ve decided to stay put for now. There were a lot of reasons that went into this decision, but we are happy with our choice.
So we are going to finish up some of the projects we’ve put off around here since we thought we might move – new carpet, replacing some windows, painting, outdoor electrical, etc. We’ve already sunk a lot of money into this house the past four years and we didn’t want to put any more in it if we weren’t going to get a good return on our investment. However, if we are going to stay here for at least a while, we want to do these things because we will enjoy them.
Going through this was a good exercise in two things we often discuss:
1. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
2. How much should we complicate our lives in an effort to simplify them?
Maybe I will try to write on those in the coming days. For now we’ve got the answers to those questions and we’re ready to settle down into normal living!
