I think I’ve finally reassimilated to life back home. It took a week. I knew it would. I’m not so great at coming home from a long vacation. It’s hard for me to just snap back, but I am there, finally. It helps that school has started this week (btw, after just 5 or so minutes of crying after we left, Claudine had a GREAT day at school yesterday and talked about it all day afterwards, but this morning we had to drag her all the way there and she cried again. This school stuff is going to take awhile). It helps that Fall, my favorite time of year in the city, is on the verge of making its appearance. After today, the last day as far as I can tell of mid-80s temperatures, it will feel like it’s here. Apple picking. Crisp cool days in jackets and scarves. Pulling out the boots and sweaters. Halloween. The crunch of leaves. It’s all good.
I’ve been making dates to see lots of friends. I know that I have to find work soon, but I’ve given myself permission to take some time off to figure stuff out. So far, I am not worrying, yet. The last week has been full of adjustments for the family so it seemed like a good decision until things settle. I woke up last Thursday thinking about all the things I wanted to get done since it was a babysitting day, but quickly remembered that we don’t have a nanny anymore. CRAP! Changes for us all, changes all around.
Anyone else going through some changes this Fall?
