It has been dreary, rainy and very cold here for over a week now. It's messing with my mood in a big way! It doesn't hurt that the rest of life is crazy, sad, and very busy right now, though, either. Emily is really struggling with switching schools next fall and dealing with saying good-bye at school has been really hard for her. There's still a couple of weeks left of school and finals to get through and I'm hoping (for all of our sakes) that it goes by quickly and we can just get to the fun of summer break.
I'm trying to unpack as much as I can every day but this still doesn't feel quite like home. Don't get me wrong - I love this house! But, it is still a process making it into our home. And I made the mistake of driving past our old house a few days ago. I will not be doing that again anytime soon!!!! Seeing different chairs on the front porch, a new TV hung on the living room wall (clearly visible through the front windows - yuck!!!), different furniture inside, someone else's hammock in the backyard, and someone messing with the garden that I spent hours and hours designing and planting just really messed with my head. I thought it would be so cool to drive past the house and instead, the kids and I literally gasped out loud at the changes. It was not the best idea.
So, rain, go away. Please! I need the sun right now!!!
