Waiting, waiting, waiting(Sung to the tune of “Rawhide”)
We’re forever waiting
Keep these folks a waitin’
This has, once again, been the story of our week. No word on anything—our building plans are still hung up with the state housing authority awaiting approval, and our disaster loan is stalled for the holidays. Which means that nothing can progress until they are approved. Of course, once we get the plans in hand, the dam will burst, and we’ll likely be flooded with activity. About that time, I expect the Polar Vortex to hit the U.S., and we’ll face weather delay after weather delay. sigh It’s hard to stay positive when the process keeps dragging, even though I know we’ll eventually get there. In the meantime, I keep busy with reading, writing, and gaming.
This week, we celebrate the Winter Solstice and Christmas. As the holidays approach and the cold settles in, I have to remind myself how far we’ve come. A year ago, we were still in shock at having lost everything and not sure how our lives would proceed. Now, we at least have a plan.
