How do you spell relief?

Am I showing my age if I recall the commercial that spelled relief: r-o-l-a-i-d-s?

Do they even make that product any more?

It doesn’t matter.  I have a new way to spell relief: s-i-g-n-e-d-l-e-a-s-e.  And while I’m not there yet, I have just come to very agreeable terms with a homeowner and expect to have a signed lease soon.

It was the very first house I saw on Saturday morning.  I could have been home for dinner.  But then I wouldn’t have found that great Spanish restaurant my mom and I enjoyed, so it’s ok.

18 days from now, the packers are coming to box up my stuff.  Oh, I have so much to do in so little time.

The next month or so is an interesting time with multiple stages of stress and relief.  The stress of securing a new house is almost over.  In a few weeks, the stress of packing will be over.  Of course, there are the stresses of having a baby, cleaning and clearing our current home, and settling in to our new home.  But far and above all these issues is the mother of all stresses and there is only one way to spell relief from that one:


29 days to go.

  1. I am amazed at how well you are handeling a move this late in a pregnancy.
    That makes you a rock star in my book.

    I live on Maalox tablets from about the 5 month mark.

    Praying that the next 29 days and beyond go smoothly for you.

  2. Actually, I'm totally FREAKING OUT, while maintaining a calm exterior, most of the time. And the TUMS I keep in my purse needs to be re-stocked.

  3. I'm so glad you found a place so quickly! With my prayers that the move, the birth, the change of command, all of it–go as smoothly as can be.

  4. I'm glad you found a house! All those same stresses (minus the pregnancy) are coming my way!

  5. Mine was so bad with my last that I had to be put on Zantac prescription. And visit the Gastro. I feel your pain. So glad you found a house! I know that's one BIG item you can check off your list.

  6. I absolutely agree about the change of command thing. It was like the best day of my life when my husband handed over that flag.

  7. I'm freaking out for you. Like I said another time just reading about all you have going on makes me anxiously twitch. I'm going to channel this nervous energy into praying for you.

    Glad you found a home so quickly though.

  8. I am glad it is working out!
