Most of the fall was absorbed with house-hunting, purchasing, finding new renters for our previous home, prepping for the move, moving, and unpacking. This has taken any spare moment and more than all my spare energy and attention to make happen.
In July, as Eliza and I soldiered on towards our new home's closing day, I nearly threw in the towel. A new job, a pandemic, and buying a home almost did me in. But I'm extremely happy we muscled through it. We are far better off now than we were in the beginning of the pandemic.
I feel some of your pain Noah. And you have the added responsibility of homeschooling children! Hats off.
