I Must Confess…I’m Sick of Waiting

Welcome to another confession as part of my weekly I Must Confess linkup.

This week I have to confess I am completely sick of waiting for things.

It seems I’ve been waiting for everything lately and my patience is fast wearing thin.

I’m in a holding pattern, circling the airport, knowing the end is near but still powerless to get on with it.

Rather than “living”, I’m “waiting”. It’s not a fun place to be.

I’m waiting for our house to be ready for sale and I’m waiting for it to be sold.

I’m waiting on tradespeople to help get the house in order so it can be sold.

I’m waiting for our mower man to come by to mow our lawn so I no longer wade through knee deep grass to get to the clothesline.

I’m waiting on the house we would like to buy to be snapped up by another unencumbered buyer.

I’m waiting for things to go pear-shaped at school for Gilbert and Matilda, despite the positive start to the year.

I’m waiting (still) for my kids to be able to fully wipe themselves up properly after going to the toilet…

I’m waiting for our house to sell so we can then upgrade my husband’s car.

I’m waiting to go back to work to recommence “real life”.

I’m waiting until I go back to work to start at the gym.

I’m waiting to hear if I am offered a promotion at work as I’m next on the order of merit for the next 9 months.

I’m waiting (anxiously & excitedly!) to go to Melbourne at the end of March for DPCON12 and finally meet other bloggers in real life.

And I’m waiting for Google Friend Connect to finally be removed from my wordpress blog – in future, if you wish to continue to follow my ramblings you can subscribe to receive new posts by email (see the subscription box to your right) or you can follow me on facebook and twitter.

To be honest, I’m sick and tired of the frustration of waiting. I am nowhere near the most patient person on this earth (really) and the endless waiting across all parts of my life is starting to weigh me down.

I just want to stop waiting and start living. That’s not too much to ask, is it?

So, there’s my whinge confession for the week. I would love to see some more confessions linked up so be brave and link up your own post!

The Rules…

– I Must Confess is a link up that will be happening every Sunday – a bit of a homage to my Catholic upbringing, in fact!

– The link will be live from 10pm Saturday night for the whole week.

– You can link up something old or new, we’re not fussy around here.

– Please go forth and share the comment love – it is bloggy crack after all!

– The linky is meant to be fun so please remember that and respect others – hopefully we can all have a little fun with this as we go along.

– You don’t have to be my friend to play along but it’s always nice to make new friends, isn’t it?

Spread the positivity!

    I will admit I’m not much good at waiting. We’ve hit a speed bump with back to school, both girls had most of last week off because they are sick.

      I hope you and the girls are now fully recovered – not an ideal way to start off the year, is it?

      I’m still waiting for something to go pear-shaped at school. The ASPECT outreach officer came by today and watched Gilbert in his mainstream class and was apparently happy with his progress – will I ever be able to relax? I constantly feel like it can’t be this good forever – just hope it doesn’t start going wrong next week when I head back to work!
