Today I am participating in a weekly feature on lisajobaker.com called Five Minute Fridays. Bloggers are given a writing prompt (topic) and told to write for *five minutes. “No *editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.” Today’s topic is “Home.”
It’s after 7 PM and I just saw a friend of mine post about today’s five minute friday. I purposely didn’t even check FMF today because it’s our anniversary and I had an anniversary post scheduled, which I still haven’t started because of time!
Of all the days to NOT do FMF…
So I felt that it deserved at least a scatterbrained 5 minute post while I try to ignore the animal sounds coming from the bathtub where my husband is playing with Ezra.
*insert deep breath here*
Home…it still feels so elusive. We haven’t found much in the way of jobs for my husband. And what we have found hasn’t brought us anything concrete.
So now, we are planning to move back to my husband’s hometown within the next month or so.
I want to be excited and start planning life in our new home, but I’m still a little hesitant, as our plans could change any moment should we get a call about a job in one of the other 15-some-odd locations that we have applied for.
I keep thinking that maybe a month or two from now, we will be closer to that feeling of “home.”
Right now, it’s just limbo. And so I’m just trying to enjoy the home I have now. The one with the empty guestroom, messy child’s room, the husband interrupting my 5 minutes to ask me about a towel for Ezra, the quick kiss I just got from my son, and the anniversary cheesecake baking in the oven.
