So, life has been a little crazy since my last post here. Yeah, I know it's been since November. My apologies to the 6 people that actually read this blog. I've discovered something interesting about myself since then. When the details of my life are up in the air and I have no idea what the day or week or month will bring, I tend to shut out parts of my life so that I don't have to talk about those unknowns more than I have to. My blog, unfortunately, was one of those parts that I took a break from.
At the end of October, my hubby interviewed for a new job...one that we thought would be perfect. It was in the perfect place and the timing seemed, well, perfect. But the kicker was that he didn't get the job. We were bummed, to say the least. And then, a couple of weeks later, he got a call about another option...one that we had not been originally open to. It was for the same position he had interviewed for, except that it was in California. Whoa! It was completely unexpected! To make a long story short, we were both at complete peace with pursuing the opportunity. And now, I find myself in California, somewhere that I never anticipated living, completely excited to see what God has in store for my family.
Okay, back to the title of this post. Routine. This is a very elusive concept in my life right now. I feel like I have been devoid of routine for 3 months now. Just the past 3 weeks have been insane with moving, unpacking, travelling, and now home again. I still face boxes and piles and disorder. And, though part of me desperately seeks routine and order, I'm trying to be content with what my life is right now. I don't want to miss LIFE, and the things that make a day special, because I'm chasing after something I may not attain for quite some time. :)
