All The Things

Since moving home nearly four weeks ago, I've been busy catching up on life. I'm feeling a bit like someone who has been asleep for nine months only to awaken with an urgent, incessant need to do all the things that couldn't be done during those previous months.

 Chandelier at the Benedum Theater in Pittsburgh.

There has been visiting with friends (some I hadn't seen in well over six months), deck drinking, and coffee dates. I've been shopping and spending time in Pittsburgh with my mom seeing a play. I've been cooking and baking lots of food that I wanted to make, but didn't because cooking for one just wasn't as much fun. There has been lots of hanging out time; making string art on the deck with a new crafty friend and sleepovers with one of my cousins. There's been a lot of trying to help my mom who is now taking care of my stepfather at home. I've been doing lots of cuddling with my dog, because, how could I not?

Oh how I missed my dog! I like to think she missed me too.

I'm just now settling into somewhat of a routine. Slowing down and realizing that, I'm home, I don't have to do everything at once. I'm starting to feel like I'm getting all the things I've yearned to do for nine long months crossed off my mind's list. I'm making plans for upcoming months which include a long weekend in DC and a close friend's wedding/big friend get together in October. I'm slowly (very slowly) starting to unpack boxes. Maybe one of these day's I'll even get around to finally unpacking the trunk of my car.

I'm looking forward to making much more frequent use of this space and stopping by your spaces. I miss the blogging community and knowing what's going on in each of your worlds. So, tell me, what have you been up to? When you've been a way for a time do you feel the need to catch up on all the things you may have missed?

I'm so happy and relieved for you. After our Miami oddesy I can truly understand the depth of your relief. I will say that for me at least, the experience made me appreciate home more than I probably ever would have. Congratulations and enjoy!
