Don’t we all just love moving!! So much joy and you know the transition is always just so so easy!! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! give me one more! Hip Hip Hooray!


Well I am currently going through the “joy” of moving. Of course, that is pending on this lovely contract of a house sale that is always in limbo until the final closing date as you prepare to move but not really sure if you are going to actually move due to a very large number of unforeseeable circumstances that can prohibit this transition. So of course you prepare and do as much as you can to make the transition, but ultimately we have very little control of the situation. And there it is: ultimately we have very little control. So after I’ve done everything I can do, I’m going to leave the rest to God. I’m going to try really hard not to worry about it because there is nothing more I can do about it! I’m just going to enjoy the joy of moving, “knock on wood”!!              -Adam Gilbert
