Alive and Ready

Alright, so yes, I’m alive. J I’ve had a couple people contact me in the last day or two wondering if I’m ok. Many have cited the fact that I haven’t written a blog in 9 days as the clue they had that things weren’t quite right. Well, if you’ve been wondering, things haven’t been quite right. My husband and I were both sick over the past week and a half which was not fun. But, we are feeling better now and my house is thoroughly cleaned and we are ready to get back to the land of the living! J

Today I felt a clear closing of a door and a clear opening of another one. Over the last 29 days since we lost our job we have been spending a little time doing odd projects and working on getting new jobs but mostly we took the beginning of the month to enjoy Bryan’s sister being here and to just recoup and relax. We went out with friends, we went sightseeing, we watched movies, we played games, and we spent a lot of time hanging out together and talking about our life and our dreams. Then the second half of the month we were both sick so we didn’t do much of anything.

But, today I felt a change. Today felt like fall. Today I felt ready for the next stage in our lives, ready for the next job, the next project, the next season. Today I cleaned my whole house because I felt like I needed to start this new season with a cleansing – of my house, my stuff and myself. That’s what I felt like today was for me, a cleansing. And now I’m tired, but ready for what’s to come.
