September and a Deep Breath

It was a strange coincidence that as the new month began, so did the next chapter in our journey. 

It was hard to leave, but exciting to arrive and we have already begun to resume the life we left behind during mid-April when we relocated to Maryland. 

It is freeing and scary. 

I am recovering from my fire ant encounter. The itching woke me during the night, but slathering the spots with cortisone and Benadryl reduced the urge to scrape the skin off my foot to a manageable level. 

The weather is hot, but not as hot nor humid as what we had been experiencing in Maryland. The morning and evening were both comfortable enough to be outside. Chris and I spent the day unpacking, organizing, and obtaining the essential items we needed to live comfortably. We prepared a salmon dinner at home last evening and even our furry family members adjusted to the new pace and relaxed from the past months of continual upheaval.

While I would like to say, "It is over," there remain more than a few tings to accomplish. We need to be reunited with the PODS and assimilate those treasures into the home. We have decided that we will require a storage room even though the weeding process will continue. Many more things will be thrown off the raft, but more than a few will be retained--at least for a while.

Now is the time to take a deep breath and move forward in an unhurried, but deliberate manner.
