Settling In Nicely Over Here

We moved to another country mid-week. Rather than movers and a truck, we packed all our stuff in suitcases, schlepped them to the airport and paid our checked baggage fees. Best money I ever spent. Oh, you want to move my things from one side of the world to another for the low low price of $200? THANK YOU! Take them! All of them!

Everything All At Once

It all comes at once. The happiness co-mingled with fear and anxiety underneath. Or joy for a friend’s achievement and in an instant, berating oneself with should haves and could haves. All at once, it’s all there mixed up, jumbled, and waiting to be untangled.
