This is Peanut Butter Brickle. In life, sometimes it comes down to the wire. Something you’ve worked for and planned for us upon you.
Like dinner time. Fruitycake and I work very hard to rush that and hurry up Girl Person in the kitchen. And lately, it’s whatever kitchen we happen to be in. I don’t even know.
We’ve been working on getting our little house in that Italy place for quite a few months. The persons have also been working on getting their visas. And there have been many problems. Many paperwork issues. Many, many paperwork issues and problems. And they are in the midst of quite a few now. On top of it all, we had to sell our cherry truck, get a clown car till we found another one and we can’t find that other one.
My persons pockets aren’t so deep. And Fruitycake and I don’t even wear pants to have pockets.
The persons passports are at someone’s office who is turning down their visas again. And without passports they can’t fly to that Italy place to sign for the little house. And they weren’t even supposed to do that in the beginning. Everything has been so hard and with many twists and turns. And we have to accomplish many things this week. It kind of seems. Impossible. But I know that’s not true.
We have to find answers. Get help. And the persons are excited at this dream becoming a reality. But nervous. Hopeful it will work out. And joy at the thought that all of this will be worth it when we can get on the boat in August.
Have you ever wanted something so bad that you just didn’t know if it would be worth the work? Did you decide to try or no? Do you regret the decison not to? Can you try again?
We aren’t ready to give up. And we know it’s going to work out if we just keep on the path.
But right now it’s hard to not be nervous. I guess that’s part of it. I guess nervous means feeling something. Nervous means you want it. Let the nerves turn into strength. That’s what we will do.
