An Ode to Renting, Part 2

I’m afraid I don’t have time to write this post today. My children are running amok, you see. And I need to attend to them.

Additionally, I have to finish a speech I’m giving at a college tomorrow.

There is also dinner to be made, clothes to be folded, laundry to be moved, children’s chores to oversee.

These people in my house will also be wanting games to be played, books to be read, plays to be put on.

Then there’s me time, meaning that there are books to read, baths to be had, and long walks that need to be taken.

So as you can see, I simply don’t have time to write this post today.

Nor do I have time to worry about doing my own home maintenance.

Do you see what I did there? 😉

Renting has been a tremendous time saver and has kept us from buying any possessions (furniture, rugs, paint, wall hangings, etc.) that are too precious for life with kids. It has kept my heart from being entangled in creating perfect rooms or getting our home to be just the way I want it.

Someday, there will be more time for niceties and painting rooms and fancy things, but having them removed from the equation has been a blessing in this season.

And now, I really must return to it.
