Things I Hope to Never Do Again:
- Oral surgery
- Spend eight hours in a snowstorm at the Philadelphia airport
- Take a child to the emergency room
- Accidentally eat tofu
- Fall face-first into a lake
- Shop at a used car dealership
- Melt kitchen utensils into my pancakes
- Go willingly into a mosh pit
- Forget my graphing calculator for the final exam in college math
- Grow my own mold
- Child birth (the birth part isn’t so bad, but the following two years of sleep torture is
- Buy and sell a house on the same day
Buying and selling a house on the same day: I am not a fan. Or, in other words, one of the top worst experiences of my life thus far, and that life includes spraying hand sanitizer directly into my eyeballs.
There are no pictures to show you the stress of buying and selling a house on the same day because:
- The camera cord is in one of the unmarked boxes that was thrown together at the last minute (and by last minute, I mean LAST minute — in the midnight hours, when all hope of packing and moving was lost; like a college student who knew all semester long he had to move out of his dorm but waited for his mother to appear before he decided that the maelstrom that had hit his room would require more than an hour of work to undo).
- We have no internet at home, which makes one wonder how I’m even typing and/or posting this. (Doesn’t one?)
So, since there are no pictures, I leave you with a picture in words:
A pink and purple sky, rising over fields that go on forever (or at least until the Dilworth wind turbines), a brilliant rainbow in the sky, and the serenity of country life. That is our new home.
