They say that moving is one of the top five most stressful life events, right? I never believed that statistic until now, and we haven’t even signed a new lease yet.
Oh man, you guys. I’m sorry the blog’s been so quiet. I’m sorry that I haven’t responded to your comments or commented on your own posts about what’s going on in your lives. As I mentioned in Friday’s post, I’ve been absent from not just the blog lately, but social media as well.
I said to my friend yesterday, I haven’t been blogging, and I haven’t been taking pictures, either. What have I been doing?! The answer: I’ve been anxious. I realized yesterday that this, how I’ve been feeling lately, is reminiscent of my anxiety last fall. I feel discombobulated. I feel weepy, fragile, uncertain. We started looking for apartments in June, and got serious about it in July. And now we are set to leave our current apartment on August 1- two weeks from tomorrow!
Let me tell you: I cannot wait to be in our new place. I can’t wait to feel settled again. I know that I’ll miss a few things about our place here in Kingston, like the wildlife:
And our location on a hill with some fantastic stormy cloud views:
But there are so many things I’m excited for: exploring Hudson and Greenport’s parks and conservation areas, trying out new-to-us restaurants, being so close to our friends, and a lot less time spent driving to and from work for both Andy and I.
I don’t like feeling unsettled, but I am happy about a change. I hope to be reinspired soon. I hope to bring you some more regular content soon, as well! Things are rough, but I have hope.
Thanks for bearing with me!
