Before I get back to the trip, because I will be finishing that up, I wanted to break away and let everyone know that I’m still alive. And that, apparently, living in limbo for a month and then attempting to move and unpack an entire house in a weekend is a little more stressful than I saw coming. I think being in my 30s and requiring more sleep than I did in my 20s probably isn’t helping that.

Anyway, I find it particularly challenging to sit down and write when my life and my house are in chaos. Being creative? Forget about it. Not to mention I still have an army of pets so be cared for in the middle of all of the nuttiness.

However, I did find out that they make interior house paint that’s latex free, officially making latex the worst allergy ever. Not only am I allergic to kiwi, cantaloupe and bananas I can’t even get out of home improvement projects. (So far the only plus is that I’m also allergic to avocados so I don’t have to explain to people that no, I really don’t like guacamole. No, I’m pretty sure I won’t even like your guacamole. Yes, yes, I know, people rave about it, but seriously I find the texture off-putting and stop trying to make me eat your guacamole. A simple “Sorry, I’m allergic to avocados.” results in far less harassment.)

In other news, except for feeling like I don’t really have time to enjoy it just yet, being home has been 100% wonderful. I am so, so fortunate to have grown up in such an astoundingly beautiful place and I am beyond lucky to be able to return.
