Many of us have transitions that we deal with daily. Some are small ones like going from home to work, or home to school which we do without hesitation-well mostly. Sometimes we experience larger life transitions which can equate to change. Change means uncertainty.
For us, we sold our home of almost 11 years and closed at the end of February. We sold most of our furniture and farmed out the rest to our awesome friends until we come back. We moved into a fully furnished rental about 4 miles away. This was a difficult transition for Journey, who at 12 years old, had to give up the only home she knew, give her guinea pig away as well as getting rid of her many life long posessions. Milly, the guinea pig went to dear friends and their boys who are enjoying their new pet. Trying to maintain some sense of normalcy is a challenge when we are packing, moving, working, parenting, and trying to still have routine.
Journey has rose to the occasion after a period of adjustment, thankfully. We have also transitioned to our "new home" which we will be in until the end of May. The Beach Cottage as we call it, is serving as a staging area. The endless sorting of things that are going versus things that stay behind. Trying to make time to study for our General license for the Ham radio is also peppered in the list of things we are trying to do.
I look forward to not having to multi task to this level. Our lists have lists but it is part of the process.
