Scenes from a long week
It's been a long week, but I'm still so happy to be here. We aren't in a new house yet, so the move is sort of on temporary hold. I'm waiting to see where I find a new job (please please please let me find a new job), and then we'll make the final decision about where to plant ourselves down. For now we wait it out at my mum's house, which makes for a very happy Alyce. You might have noticed that she's spending her time baking on Nana's back patio, in denim shorts and pearls. Somehow she's managing with all these transitions.*
I'm perfectly content with this arrangement. The move was so draining that I think I would have crumpled on the floor in a useless heap if I had to move into a new place on this end. For this short time I will enjoy spending time with my mum, enjoying some lovely wine and dinners in the evening when the girls are in bed. On my list today? Buying Shira a new crib. I also plan on making this. It can't be all job-hunting all of the time.
I hope everyone is enjoying a good week. Are you covered in rain like we are? If you live in the tornado-affected areas of the U.S., I hope you and those you love are safe and sound.
*Or I should say, she's selectively managing these transitions. There have been many moving-related meltdowns, as was expected. But wearing Nana's pearls takes the edge off.
