I wrote my first blog post on 01 September 2007. We’d just found out we were going to be moving – we weren’t yet sure of where we’d be going other than South Asia – and I thought it would be a good idea to blog about our move and everything that would happen during our transition. I remember the thrill of all that was to come. It was all so unknown and for the most part exciting and (on occasion) scary. Well, the time has come to go the other way.
We’re moving back to America. We’re moving back with Michael’s job. This should be a good move for him – career wise – and I totally support him. However, I am not at all ready to go. I’m not sure I’ll ever really be ready to go. It’s months away (7 months or so), but I’m not able to approach it the way I did our move here.
So here I go. Blogging about returning. Right now it doesn’t feel like returning home, even though we’ll be returning to the same house we lived in before.
There are folks who are excited for our return and we are so thankful for them, but we also don’t know how to make them understand that we can’t share in their excitement and that we need that to be okay. Eventually we will get there. I think.
