I hate making decisions. What to eat for dinner? What to do this weekend? What movie to rent from Blockbuster (does anyone actually use Blockbuster anymore or are you all NetFlickers?)? Most of the time, I'd simply rather have other people make them for me. And for those really big decisions? Well, I guess I'd rather Heavenly Father put what He sees as best for me right in front of me. I trust Him--honest I do!
Currently, C and I are faced with a whole bunch of huge decisions, and all at once. I can't figure out why, exactly, I seem to do this to myself. Let's remember late 2004. Within a period of two months, I quit my dream job, began my nightmare job, sold my cute condo, rented my crappy apartment, moved across the country, and said goodbye to my single life by marrying C. Not all changes were bad, but why did I have to do them all at the same time?
I feel like that now. We found a HUD (town-)home that is really quite lovely. The process of buying a HUD home is fast. You have to make a bid within 10 days of the listing. 10 days?! To make a decision on buying a home?! On top of that, yesterday C was offered a really great opportunity for this upcoming school year. Although this might end up being a no-brainer, it's still a big decision that could influence the entire path of his teaching career. So we've got both of these really big decisions on our plates with no clear answer as to what is the right thing. It's making my head hurt.
