This is certainly not the blogging week that I had in mind. I had a beautiful post on Patience that I was going to write today. Not to mention a few notes about Ursa Major (who is turning freaking 3 in two weeks!!)
But alas, life has made me a maniac this week. I have spent most of my days in the car, I have been managing my contractor, preparing myself and my sons and our stuff for this one last move… and of course, dealing with two little boys who are homesick. I am also running up on some fiction deadlines, so my days have been crazy. I’m either overwhelmed by life and keeping it together, trying to squeeze out some creative concepts or just utterly shutdown!
So here is the big breaking news: The boys and I will be joining The Husband tomorrow. We’re going to be a family again, and we’re going to be a family at our house. I am so ready on so many levels, and yet there is something scary about this. When I walk into that house tomorrow, babies in tow, I’ll be walking into a home that is permanent on land which is mine. I didn’t realize how much the permanence would scare me, but it does a little bit. And I know that many of you are rolling your eyes and thinking “It’s not permanent. You’ll likely move again!” But not for a long while and probably not out of this community. This is the place where I’m going to raise my children. Massachusetts, tomorrow and for the considerable future, is concretely home.
I’ll have more to write on Monday. And Monday will be a regular posting week, I promise. Thank you for your patience as I transition my family into our new home and life. For those who have followed me for the majority of the journey, I can’t express my appreciation for your support during the up and downs. I’m looking forward to some more exploratory and up-beat posts in the coming weeks. I’m really looking forward to waking up on Monday not feeling so unbelievably tired.
Until then, take care!
