I’m feeling antsy.
Like I need a change.
And if I thought we might actually be able to sell our house in this market, I’d sell it. And move to a little house in the country.
With a big yard.
I get frustrated with our house. I don’t love the back yard – we have space but no trees and it’s pretty hot out there in the evenings. I’m an outside kind of girl and I dream of a backyard where I can lounge and watch the girls and dogs play in the grass.
I like the outside of our house. I like the style.
And we don’t have a ton of money just lying around waiting for us to spend it.
Even if we did, that pile o’ cash would have just been spent on a new alternator and tires. Oh wait. That IS where that imaginary pile o’ cash went. Boo.
We dream of putting up cottage style molding and trim. We dream of painting the kitchen cabinets and just about every square inch of wall. We dream of walking in and feeling at home. Almost three years there and we still don’t really feel at home.
We miss our old house in North Carolina.
And, we’re so stinkin’ tired all the time that we barely even have the energy to dream much anymore.
I need to be inspired. Not just with my house. I need something that captures my imagination, heart and mind. I get excited about a lot of things, but what I need is something more than a fleeting exuberance.
So, I wonder . . . what has captured your imagination? What inspires you?
