~a place to sit
how are you doing?
~things are calming down here a tad, plenty boxes still need to be unpacked-but like my wise, wonderful sister in law told me-"give yourself till December to sort all the stuff out!" I agree.
~my skin is doing better with the help of pharmaceuticals. I'm taking steroids, and if you know anything about me this isn't really ideal-I usually error on the side of less medicine the better (I'm also taking fish oil and evening primrose oil because omega-3's are good for the skin). When the physician assistant saw my rashes (on my hands, arms, legs, face) she knew I needed something-and I will admit I feel better after taking the pills and my skin looks so much better-only because my immune system is being suppressed. I follow up with an internist and dermatologist next week, hopefully that will give me some answers about why my skin is rebelling so.
~my feelings of homesickness are gradually getting better, but are still present. I had a good talk with my sister in law about this-and really she gave me so much insight. Even though we have moved several times before, I think this one came at a time in my life when I was really establishing myself and my interests (after all I find real beauty in routine and sameness). Thus now I have to start over, and truth be told I'm kinda lacking the energy to make connections, to make community again, but it is necessary I know.
~The kids are adapting well and are enjoying school, which in itself a blessing.
~right now I'm crocheting up little dishcloths for our place, some for the bathroom and some for the kitchen.
~I planted a pot of rosemary near the garage today, it's smells very good, really strong.
~I miss Target (the nearest one is about twelve miles away) but I am enjoying the wonderfulness that is Trader Joes (which is about 3 miles away from us :)
Have a good Thursday evening friends.
