It's no secret. I haven't exactly been thrilled about our recent move. It's taken me a minute to adjust.
And it's hard to really give yourself time to settle into your new surroundings when there's so much work that needs to be done. A lot has been tackled, but the list of To Do's ain't quite done.
In a perfect world, Grace Farrell, per Oliver Warbucks instructions, would have come to collect me from my former home and taken me to my new one where a complete staff of singing and dancing maids, butlers, chefs and groundskeepers would have been at my beck and call. I wouldn't have had to lift a finger! It would have looked something like this:
But in reality, there are still boxes in corners.
Artwork is propped up against walls.
Piles of books and randomness sit, patiently waiting to be put in their proper places.
And with a little love and care, this chaos will eventually become my office.
There are endless loads of laundry. Dishes to wash. Meals to prepare. Groceries to buy. Bills to pay. Homework to do. The same busyness and craziness of Life that has always existed for us is still right here. Perhaps packaged a little differently, but still, exactly the same.
And so, in the unfamiliar, I have found the familiar. In the uncertainty, I have found the certain.
And in the "I'm not sure if I like it," I have found the LOVE.
And after a few tears and several moments of weirdness, I can finally say...
I Guess I'm gonna like here!
How long does it take you and your family to adjust to a new rhythm? I'd love to hear from you. Please share in the comments below.
