Just Jill

Very poor capture of a very special, young visitor.
To the few that have inquired,
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Listed the house and sold it in three weeks flat.
Had a moving sale.
Sold quite a bit.
Donated a huge amount.
Passed a 4 hour house inspection with flying colors.
Water test results were glowing.
Then came the septic system.
Due to new codes,
I need a new one.
Buyer wouldn't deal.
Now I'm in the process of getting bids for new septic
and house is back on the market.
I've packed up a lot.
Storing it all in a shed and garage.
Will have to move it out of garage
to the shed before the snow flies.
Had showing.
They broke my storm door.
Main TV died.
Dropped it on my foot while moving it.
Nothing broken, just very sore.
Did the State Fair.
Too hot,
too crowded.
My feet and legs hurt for days and days.
Burning up here.
In a drought. 
Sold all my hoses and sprinklers.
Snow shovels too.
Hope that white stuff holds off a long time.
Started school.
First me, then her.
Trying to find a new routine.
Obviously, blogging hasn't been a part of that.
I'm sorry.
Don't know when it will be.
If ever.
Miss ya'.
Hope you're all doing well.
Life is bumpy.
But it's all good.

i have been hoping you were just moving and all was proceeding forward. i'm sorry that things got bumpy instead. i know we're supposed to have faith that it is how it should be...

bless you.

Paula said...

I too thought you were in the process of moving. Sorry things didn't turn out better but maybe there is a reason. Wishing you the very best Jill.

Lynne said...

Weeks have gone by and I was thinking, that Jill is packed up and moving . . . and I thought, I can't wait until she posts again to tell us all about it!

And here you are . . . and bumps after bumps happening to you and I didn't know, no one knew.

Well darn it, shame on me! I should have hooked up the horses and taken off North to check you out!

Sounds like you have a plan, moving forward and in "typical Jill fashion" you're still smiling!

Wishing I knew how to help out with septic systems. Hoping for all the best from here on out Jill!

Jenny Woolf said...

I'm sorry things haven't been going too easily Jill. I hope that you're soon straight again. Moving is always hard, at least I think so. But in between states dont' last forever.Hugs Jenny

Bonnie said...

Jill, I am keeping my fingers crossed the septic system is replaced and everything moves quickly forward from there. The bumps and turns keeps us on our toes. Sending you good thoughts. Hugs, Bonnie

Donna said...

Wow! Well, here's hoping things smooth out quickly for you!!

Terri Buster said...

So sorry about the house sale falling through. Moving is such a stresser. I hope that everything falls into place for you soon.

Saun said...

Sorry to hear about your bumpy road. This year seems to be full of them. I m having the same problem getting back into blogging. I sure miss it and the friends I've made trying to get back into the groove. Take care hugs Saun

Paula said...

No more lifting heavy items until your house is sold k? :)

Debbie said...

awwww Jill, this was hard to read!! While you were Mia, I thought you were busy with the move!!

I am sending you a big warm hug from the Jersey Shore!!

Jeanne said...

I've been thinking of you and thought you were busy with your move.
Too bad about the sale falling through. I'll say a prayer that things get less bumpy for you.

Kayla said...

So sorry, Jill. We are in the middle of a mess with our inspection. Hoping it doesn't mess up our sale either....keep us posted. We will be praying for you.

At Home in English Valley said...

Oh Jill...It's so stressful moving, selling a house and there are always problems, but this too shall pass. We buried St. Joseph in the yard...then I sucked him up with the lawn mower when we tried to sell our home years ago. We did finally sell. The good news is that a slightly banged up St. Joseph has a place of honor in our home today. You are in my prayers. Love, Penny

Susan said...

Dang those whoop d doos. Hang in there, it will get better. I was really glad to see you on the blog.
I hope that all gets better real soon!

Nancy said...

So glad to hear from you Jill -- I do miss your updates. So sorry about the danged septic and your foot. A few months from now, this will all be a memory. Keep us posted when you can. xo

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Stopped by to see where you'd been. So sorry to hear about the septic tank. Ugh. I hope you find a new buyer soon. Hugs.

Buttons said...

Oh Jill sorry I have not dropped in life as you know can send us "curve balls" and we must deal with them and move on. I know this has been very hard and I do hope all turns around before the snow flies but I do think it will because you my dear deserve all the best the world has to offer and this is another test. Take it slow and easy and keep that thought in mind. Everything for a reason even though we do not know that reason sometimes for quite awhile. I know this because I keep telling myself that everyday for the last two months also. HUGS hugs my friend you will get through this. Blog when you can I am thinking of you. You are not alone. Hugs again. xoxo B

Jill from Killeny Glen said...
