Home Sweet Almost Home

Mentally crossing fingers and toes,
Watching little ducks line up in a row,
Crunching numbers while figures grow,
But, can’t help it – I need to know
If down to the wire we must go,
How do you like your Cherrios?



I don’t want to jinx anything, but I have my eye on a house located on a main bus route near retail stores and other businesses. Anticipation is making me wait… to quote an old song best known for a ketchup commercial.

Actually, the landlord of that house is keeping me waiting.  I’m not allowed to see inside until I pass approval, which can take up to two weeks. I don’t know if anyone else has applied.

The way I see it, if I am supposed to move into that house, then all my ducks will line up in a row… click, click, click, bang. Done deal. I haven’t seen inside yet so, who knows? The location is perfect for me, the price is right, but the interior might not be suitable for my needs.

I am leaping in leap year… if not to there, then somewhere else.

Change is coming… the winds have been sweeping through my life for months now. I have reeled with loss, so it is good to feel anticipation again. Thanks for reading!

Edit note… I agree with the Anonymous Someone… lyrics should be “making me wait” instead of “making me late” as that’s how most people sing it, regardless of Bing lyrics search results (link here), so I edited the first paragraph.


Come On Spring!

I have not seen a robin yet, but the bird up that tree yesterday was a sure sign of Spring coming to downtown Youngstown, Ohio. Yes, the Christmas lights are coming down. Time to unwrap the trees.
