Changes Are Coming

I can't believe it's already been about 3 weeks since my last post! Time seems to be moving at an incomprehensible speed. I have been back to work for a month, and it hasn't gotten any easier... I'm still hoping it gets easier, and my attitude is probably not helping the situation. I am still trying to get into the rhythm- but I am really feeling pressured and like there are not enough hours in the day to be a teacher, a mom, a wife and a woman. I give credit to all of you women are wear so many hats. I feel like working full-time at this point in my life is causing me to lose myself. I don't have time to craft, sew, knit, workout, read, write, or even watch tv. I feel like as soon as I put Baby Girl to bed, it's time to put my teacher hat back on. I don't necessarily have to do school work every night, but it's often enough that it feels like a standard expectation. Someone at work mentioned that the actual teaching part is a full-time job, and so is the paperwork we do (I'm a special education teacher). I didn't have that outlook before, but now as a mom, I am feeling that way.

Towards the end of last year I really started to get the urge to move. Hubby and I have talked about it on and off for a couple years. More in passing than actual conversations- we would mention things we wanted in our next house or areas we thought we would want to head. We live in a Western Suburb of Philly, about 45 minutes from the city. Well, I made a deadline to myself; I decided that March 1 I was going to call a realtor. Well, I did and she came out this past week. We have sent a tentative/hopefully firm date of April 29th to list our house. In that time, we have a list of things that we want to complete. The only thing that our realtor mentioned was taking our pictures down and depersonalizing. We have our own list of simple things so that the buyers don't see them as hurdles.

Our list:

Inside:
remove photos (completed 3/8/15)
patch/paint holes from photos and shelves (completed 3/8/15)
purge/put stuff into storage
repair/restretch carpet in 2 areas
deep clean- windows, vents, carpet, etc.
recaulk and regrout tile along tubs
replace dripping spigot in powder room (completed 3/7/15)
add stopper to 2nd full bath

Outside:
clean gutters
power wash house
update/remulch flowerbeds
