No thanks, Routine

I've been asked a couple times recently whether I'm looking forward to getting our own place again and settling back in the area.  I thought I would respond that I'm absolutely ready to finally settle in again, but when I really thought about it, I was surprised to find that I'm not really anxious at all!  I thought by now I would be ready to jump at the first place we found just to establish some normalcy to our lives but in all honesty, I'm not at all looking forward to getting into a typical day-to-day routine again.  I've loved having a crazy schedule these past weeks!

I know it's coming soon.  I started back at work on Monday and it's been a hectic couple days.  Chris and I are fairly close to making a housing decision but even with that looming, I feel perfectly contented to just sit pretty until it happens.  This may only be because I know we have to make a final decision by the end of this week, but it could also be because I often second guess my decisions.

I don't think I typically discourage change in our lives, but I also don't jump at the chance to throw our lives into disorder for something new.  This summer has been very different from any other summer I've ever experienced but I have loved it and I wouldn't change a thing about it even if I could.  Not even if it meant having a permanent address to come back to :)
