This Is Me Unwinding

We did it.

We are moved. The place is even more insane and huge than I remember. We’re still licking our wounds from a less-than-optimal move out experience with our previous landlord. Another story for another day. But regardless of those nightmares, we’re out of there and we get to wake up to this view every morning:

More than anything I love the location. Yes, my commute went from 15 to 45 minutes. But on our drive home last night, we rolled down the windows, “oohed” and “aahed” at the spectacular views, stuck our arms out the window and breathed the fresh evening air deeply. It was incredibly peaceful and incredibly healing.

We’re giving up both cable and internet for the entire summer (although I WILL find a way to follow SYTYCD). Cable doesn’t reach our rural location, satellite was exorbitantly expensive, and we just didn’t feel like investing in a 4G router through our wireless company (hello equipment fees and 2-year contract). So we’re going off the grid.

But never fear, dear friends, I’m not going anywhere. I get to work 30 minutes before my day officially starts, so I’ll have time there. Plus my 4-day work weeks will actually be 4-day work weeks…huzzah to no more clinical! So this leaves Fridays for adventures, shenanigans, and lots and lots of writing! I’ve already started staking out the best local coffeehouses.

I feel like I can breathe a little bit better with each new day.

Here’s to summer!
