Now is the winter of my discontent

It's holy week, but I'm not feeling very holy. It's spring break, and it feels neither like spring (it SNOWED on Monday!) nor like a break. But it looks like our insurance is pulling through for us, and the deal is still set to close on our Louisiana home next week. I have a hard time imagining how on earth all the work will get done by then and won't breathe easy until the paperwork is signed (and not even then, as it's a bond to deed, which is kind of like a lease to own, and we won't be totally off the hook with that house for up to two more years). I worry I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop. "Other" being a loose term, as I feel like the ground around me is covered in mismatched shoes and I have more than a few lumps on my head.

I did have a good audition a few days ago and today the sun is shining through the clouds, at least. I cling to the hope that some day the clouds will dissipate and a warm breeze will blow; that sorrow will turn to dancing; that joy comes with morning.

I am feeling pretty melancholy myself today. I hope the other shoe doesn't drop for you. Take Care.

Audition! What a magical word. I hope that the chance to do some work that you love will strengthen you.

The image you created, of a woman surrounded by mismatched shoes, is so whimsical. I am picturing it...

Good news about the insurance, etc. Fingers crossed it continues in the right direction.

There is sunshine somewhere there behind the clouds. It will come. You'll see.
Prayers for you!

You've had a tough run of things lately. I've been there before. Moving always seems to feel like that... Hang tough, my friend.
