People have been asking if it has hit me yet, all this permanent change (there’s an oxymoron for ya!), and I have to say yes and no. This house is definitely “home” to us, and I don’t have the feeling that we are returning to our old house or state that you sometimes get after moving. It will help to get out of limbo, and have my new license, new license plate, new name on all of my forms of ID, and the like. But that will take a few more weeks to be sure (*sigh*).
Not having a job, and not having a routine is a little unsettling, still. When The Boy starts school in a little over a month, it will feel much more “real”, I predict. But I’m not usually working in the summer anyway, at least not in the wake-up-report-to-a-building-and-stay-for-a-long-time-doing-stuff kind of way. So this doesn’t feel all that unnatural, either.
I can say that I’m not used to being referred to as “Mrs.” or “wife”, yet, but I love being married to The Man. It’s a little surreal, because the terminology is the same, but the experience is so much better.
The Boy is adjusting well. He has been perusing his old yearbooks a bit, keeping them close, so I know he’s missing what’s familiar. But I also know he’s enjoying having some new neighborhood friends, some freedom to ramble a bit, and is very much looking forward to school starting.
So, it’s real, if a bit limbo-y, but enjoyable all the same. 😉
