those gray roots again...

My to-do list says that this morning I should be taking care of that one inch of gray at my hairline but instead I'm drinking coffee and thinking about tonight, it will be the 1st and last time I will be completely alone in my house. No tripping over the dogs, no Isabel asking one question after another without really even stopping to listen to my response to the last question.

Last night I had a moment of thinking, what am I doing? I don't want things to change... I don't want to leave home... I don't want to be half way around the world from Isabel who has been my world for over 3 years (but it feels like forever). Does anyone else get this feeling a day or so before going on vacation or trip? It's like I experience the homesickness before even leaving home.

But I've always gone... it's always a great trip (well maybe they haven't all been great but alway good), and I like change.

So I just need to take a deep breath and jump......

  1. I had that same moment a little over 2 years ago. It was tough to be without my Elizabeth and she still brings it up now. My relationship with Elizabeth did change when I brought Ella home, but now we are a trio with ups and downs and many faceted experiences between us. I can't wait to follow along on your journey. But, that does remind me that I should probably take care of my Gray Hair again. ;-)
