I’ll be honest: lately I’ve been filling these uncertain times with a certain online game called Plants vs. Zombies.
There’s this one football player zombie that eats all my plants, and I’m just dying to take him out with my “pea” shooter. Hehehe.
Seriously though: Derrick and I, we don’t know what we’re doing with this whole “moving” thing. Is that surprising? Certain people in this house are NOT “fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants” types, it’s very hard for certain people to commit to moving without selling the house we own right now. So we are in limbo for the next few days until we are forced to make a decision. Our decision changes every few hours, and I’ve been dealing with the stress by doing productive things, like killing zombies with plants.
Shockingly, I’ve found that zombie killing isn’t the best stress reducer.
What’s my point? My point is that I need to be thankful. Thankful in all the uncertain decision making/changing crazy that is my life right now. So I’m getting back on the gratitude wagon and focusing on what is real, instead of what is not (ahem…zombies).
