I guess I could now say that I’m adjusting to this rustic life. I’ve certainly had my moments over the past week. Moments of tears and exhaustion and regret and longing. I’ve had my princess days. Cleaning out your own little food processing goings on has definitely not been on my ‘so-glad-we-did-this’ radar.
But as the days go by and the mess outside gets ever so slowly tidied and made into more ordered mess I think I’m adjusting to this lifestyle change. Having the S bend connected to the kitchen sink yesterday really uplifted my spirits. I never knew how wonderful those S shaped pipes really were until I had to deal with my own grey water every hour or so. It’s the small things you start to become thankful for. Just like my lovely friend, Julie mentioned in one of her comments recently.
Today we are going away for the weekend. We are going here and I can’t wait. The timing is perfect. This is exactly what I need to be doing. I’m wondering how I’ll feel about life here when I get back on Sunday? I’m hoping that I’ll be ready to move further forward and start appreciating my life a lot more than I have been. I certainly have done way too much moaning and complaining and gratefulness has definitely not been on my mind. Pretty shabby really, when you think about how the less fortunate live and still seem to maintain a smile on their faces.
See you when I get back.
Happy weekend to you all!
