Things Change, and I Need a Nap.
Well, we have moved. We're not in our new home yet, but we are definitely out of the old one. During the interim we're living with my parents, and I cannot lie to you, it has been nice being able to feel like I came home again. Waking up in the morning and knowing that an adultier adult is right down the hall is a feeling I didn't know I'd missed.
Next week we will spend a few days at the beach with family on a much needed vacation. Vacation isn't usually a thing that we do. The Hippie and myself aren't accustomed to taking breaks, but after the hustle of the last few months, that is exactly what we need. We've made it through closing down a theatre company, Mother's Day, Ring Day Weekend, Graduation Weekend, Recital Weekend, a month of me working summer camps and new job simultaneously, me adjusting to being full time at the new gig (more on that later), packing up and vacating the old house, and all that during the first two trimesters of a pregnancy. To say that we're tired is to put it mildly.
So much what has happened has been good. SO good! And so many exciting changes are still on the horizon: new baby, and the new house next door to one of our favorite people are just two of the big things that will be happening in the next few months. To say that we are blessed would be easy. What we actually are is exhausted from the hustle of the last 5 years, and damn lucky. Are there blessings there? Yes. Am I ignoring those? Nope. They don't let me. One of them calls me 'mama', and the other one kicks me in the bladder every 10 minutes. But it was hard work, and sheer dumb luck that led us to where we are now.
For the moment, I will enjoy getting to have my dad and bonus mom just down the hall. Soon I'll be the adultier adult of the house again, and I want to soak up every blessed minute of this respite while we are fortunate enough to have it.
