Girl, I feel ya and have been in the same boat! I'm definitely on the younger side of most of my friends, so that can be hard (especially when my daughters friends parents are significantly older than I am ;)

We just finally moved into our dream house with a yard for the girls and the pup. We started having kids early, but it took quite a while to build up to get where we wanted to be with the rest of our lives. And of course we are always growing and have so many goals still to reach. But, when I take a breath...I realize that I am blessed...how much better can it get? ;)

I also am impatient when it comes to having it 'all figured out.' But it seems like I can achieve what I set out to, and then, Bam...something else comes along. So, I am learning to just chill and let it be, and everything seems to work out. And when ya really think about it, the time just flies by so fast! Honestly, where does it go?

And why are we here anyway, what is our purpose...and are there living beings on other planets...and I could go on (my husband and I just had this convo, tee hee).

Well, that was a super long comment, sorry.

What I meant to say was, I'm sorry to hear about the death in your family, I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. And I hope your move goes smoothly next month. Hope you get that relax time in this summer too.

Jamie :)


I totally know how you feel!! I'm still desperate for a house of our own where I can really do all the things I want for our family (garden, composting, bike rides, slumber parties in the living room, another baby) and also have to remind myself often of how good I have it now! Even though some days are really really hard because of our life circumstances, we are really lucky to have it as good as we do and need to just enjoy it and be grateful for it even while working towards our goals for more.

Keep up the good work and keep striving for that life you want, but do enjoy the journey, too! :D


amen! slow and steady is the way to go, enjoying each step of the way. : )
i shared something like this today on my blog too. you know what they say about great minds.... ; )

Sometimes, I pride myself on this beautiful garden.


I lived off of the Orange Circle 20 years ago and it was wonderful. I wish you great happiness in achieving your goals - even when it is really hard.


Hang in there! It will come...when it's time. There are 2 quotes that I go to when I need a reminder about enjoying the "now":

"Your journey has molded you for the greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each & every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time" (~A. Tyson)

"Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin...real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business. Time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have & remember that time waits for no one." (~Souza)


Oh geez. I'm reading this a month late. I hope Christino that you're doing well--that you moved into your manifested dream...that things are feeling homey for you now...that's how I vision you at least.

Big hugs!

In the decade captured by the photos - the 1960s - the Hashemite monarchy was newly overthrown, there were two military coups and then the advent of the Arab Socialist Baath Party in 1968.
