Wow, so this is my new life. Not a vacation from the old. I'm at peace with our decision over all, to come here, no major regrets or panic moments. There are just these little pin pricks throughout the day, here & there. Wanting to go hiking & feeling so far away from anyone I had a connection with, who would go with me. So I still go out & hike, but I feel the aloneness out here. New things like figuring out school bus schedules, & getting the kids registered(which seems to be a pain here). Also, I'm still me...so seeing a few other moms across the street waiting at the bus stop for their kids to return, & me waiting by myself across the street. Wanting to be a part, but not wanting to be. It's not even that I'm shy, I could march over there with a smile, but I'm always torn with the people thing.
Anyway, I think it will take awhile for things to settle. There are boxes around me as I type. There are paint cans, & tools...many projects on the books. I think I may ignore them this morning & go look for a running trail.
