Back to Normal

I never thought the routine of getting ready for a new week on Sundays would feel so good. Last night, for the first time in more than 3 months, we tidied up the house, finished laundry and got my husband ready to start his new job this morning - and we did it knowing he wouldn't have a 6 hour commute!
The uncertainty of our life change had spilled over into every aspect of our lives, including my writing.
When I thought of the assignments I need to complete this week, there wasn't the sense of not knowing where we would land. It's amazing how much chaos in other aspect of our lives can affect the creative process.
We still have a lot of adjusting to do (we have yet to find our winter clothes, which it looks as if we'll need by the end of the week), but there's a comforting sense of at least knowing where "home" is - and that we are once again in the same state.
Happy Writing!

I don't know if it's the same where you are, but we went from shorts and t-shirts last week, to long sleeves and jackets this week. A true shock to the system.

Glad to hear you're settling in.
