I was just reading my sister's post about not being able to make life decisions... she's about to have a baby (her first) and it's so true... you just don't know what's coming: how do you do ANYTHING?
I feel like I'm in the same boat right now. Completely.
Okay, except the part about having a baby. But we're done with that part. For so long, we were in child-bearing mode. The only thing I ever imagined after that was empty-nest. Well, there's a whole-lotta something between now and then... but what IS it.
We're at the point where we've outgrown our house. I love it. I want to make it work forever. I don't want to come off as someone who always wants MORE or who's not happy with what she's got. I am blessed. I am happy.
But I *kinda* want a little more space. Not even for me as much as the Milk Man who is used to much more acreage, etc.
There is one little (huge) things that need to happen before we can make our next move. But I can't seem to get the options off my mind.
1. Build our dream house. Make things just the way we want them. The big BUT on this one is that where we live, it is close to impossible to buy land in the location that we would want. We've kept our eyes peeled for a while, but it's not *quite* what we want... ever. Do we just hold out for the right piece? Beg a farmer?
2. Buy a house. There's never going to be our dreams already built... so we'd have to put a lot of work in. Which I don't mind... if it starts at the right price. But I am pretty picky. I have never seen a house that is my dream house... I can always see room for vast improvements. What's wrong with me?
3. Stay here. Vacation more. Play more. No stress. But I don't think my fam is on board with this one.
I know I've blogged about this before, so I must sound like a broken record. But I find myself paralyzed with decisions. And who knows, maybe I feel this way because it's just not the right time yet. Maybe when the right option presents itself, I'll be like "duh!" and we'll jump. We've done it before.
Anyone else feel like 2013 could be a big year, but you just don't know WHY yet?
