Waiting.

Monday is two weeks. We were told that the decision on the new job would take two weeks.  I am, without a doubt, the worst waiter in the whole world.  I hate waiting.  It’s the not knowing that is driving me nuts.  I realize that if I knew I’d be busy, stressed, crazy but at least I’d be doing something.  I would be doing, not planning.  Planning takes up my every waking moment.  The what if of it all is all consuming.  If I knew we were not going, I could let it go. I would be disappointed sure, but at least I could be sad and let it go.  If we ARE going then I could be BUSY.  I would be simplifying our lives for god’s sake.  I want to move in a very minimalistic way. I will be selling, donating and throwing away a LARGE amount of ‘things’ that we really don’t need.  I would be digitizing pictures and putting things in storage.  I would be going to government offices for passports for the kids and organizing school transfers.  I would be getting the house ready for sale. I would be calling people to tell them.  I would DOING.  I suck at waiting.
