A Watched Pot

"Patience is something you admire in the driver behind you, but not in one ahead."
Bill Mcglashen

"Rome was not built in a day."
Proverb

"How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young?"
Paul Sweeney

"A watched pot never boils."
Every Mother


Waiting is difficult. It is anxiety-provoking and nerve-wracking. Watching the minutes tick by makes for a looooong day.

We put an offer on a house last night, and we are impatiently patiently waiting to hear back on it.



"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet."
Jean-Jacques Rousseau

I hope and pray this is so.

Just dropped in from Twitter to say hi! I'm sorry you can't have sugar right now, I recently went off sugar for a month and it was so hard. Your sugar fast will pay off soon though!

Good luck with the bid. It's torture but well worth every bit of anxiety in the end. Hang in there. There's a house that's just waiting for you.

Much love from NJ,
