Yeah, I guess that's what that whole marriage thing is about. :)

So far it looks like we're staying. But there's always a slim chance that could change.

And now I'm kind of disappointed about that. Not frantic, but disappointed.

Which is an opportunity for me, I guess. To see what it was that I'm disappointed about to point out what needs changing in my life.

1) It was beautiful and green and verdant there. Well, I don't suppose there's anything I can do about that. But the fact that my area is brownish and full of trailers might affect it, and that won't last forever (I hope).

2) The house was prettier than ours. But there are a few things I can do about that. Attack the clutter, scrub it down to sparkly "home for sale" condition, maybe even change the paint a bit.

3) I wanted to be able to stop working (or almost stop working). I guess that means I need to look at my priorities again. Maybe I don't want twice a week therapy enough to maintain my current number of hours. I think I'm at the point where I want to spend more time creating an inviting home for my family, and less time stressing myself out for my work colleagues while letting my family get shorted on my time and attention.

4) I'd be a long way from my mother. Well, that was a mixed bag. I'd probably have just as much trouble with her long distance. Just a different sort.

5) I wanted to get away. Well, that's probably normal given the circumstances and again I hope it won't last forever. And when it's over, I'll still have fabulous french bread, po-boys, and in general some of the best food on earth. And cool pleasant winters, and sweet smelling sweet olive trees.

I think I can live with staying here. :)
