domesticus interruptus

Whoa...looks like we're on the move again. We just received our 60-day notice from our landlord--they need our house for unforeseen circumstances for a family member. Very nice note, at least. Good tenants, great references, how very sorry, was hoping to catch you in person...

But now we see yet one more reason why renting sucks.

In some weird way, it feels ok. It will give us the push we need to make something happen...whether it's buying a house, moving East, something.

But right now it just feels gosh-darn inconvenient. As in, we hardly have time to do what we need to do each day for the next 2 months. Um, moving and packing and looking for a place weren't exactly factored in.

In case you didn't already know, we just moved back to our home in which both children were born after a year + in a yurt on a farm. We've been happily enjoying the luxury of mod-cons, even as we wince at our growing bellies and slumping computer posture.

And so, the ride begins again. We get more practice in trusting the flow of this life, knowing we can't control it all. Trying to make the right choices for our family. Enjoying the beauty and wonder of each day.

John wants us all to buy a farm on the East coast somewhere. Vermont? Bucks County? I won't do any farm work but I'll cook. I'm sure things will work out. You're clearly in the flow. Let us know if you need a place to hang for a while.

Hi Rachel- things will work out although it always seems trying- maybe there is a grand scheme and things happen for a good reason. In the meantime- hang in there- wish we were closer to help out--mom

Being one who has been "geographically challenged" as you put it so well Rach, I totally understand the plight! And your mom's comment is very similar to ones I receive frequently from my parents. I've been in Providence for two years now - there's hope! Come back east; there's a little less organic stuff, but a whole lotta love.
