05.09.10 – I moved to another temporary apartment, once again.
I’ve moved enough in my life to know the process, although familiar, is not always easy to deal with. At least for me, there comes a period when the honeymoon, the initial excitement of being in some place completely new, is over and you haven’t quite settled into your comfort zone with a day-to-day routine. A day-to-day routine of going to work, taking care of business and then finding yourself in your home with all of your “things” and your loved ones recharging your batteries before you do the whole thing again the next day.
I think most people dread the day-to-day routine but the grass is always greener on the other side. A year ago I was thinking “I need a change, I’m bored” and now I’m thinking “I miss my stuff and I’m tired of moving.” Never fails.
All of a sudden I’ve become discombobulated. It seems like I’m always just missing something. I have been settling into a “quasi” routine; finding a coffee shop in the morning, looking at apartment websites, picking up the kids after school, finding my way to apartment open houses.
