We finally have settled into our new place. The first week was tough, but now Claire has arrived things are starting to feel somewhat normal.
Moving from my nice house to a dinky apartment has been humbling, I just have to keep reminding myself that we are here for a reason. I may not understand what that reason is yet, but I do know I need to be here.
I quickly realized that we were living a very sheltered life in Frisco; living and going to church in a place where everyone is just about the same. There is a certain sense of comfort in that. Here there are so many unknowns. We are adapting and will continue to.
A few positives. . .
The pool is literally 50 steps from our front door.
There is a place to work out almost 55 steps from the front door. (I've worked out more in the last two weeks than I had in the last two years.)
Smaller area to keep clean.
We got rid of a significant amount of debt by moving.
Claire has such a positive attitude about everything . . .
She loves that she has French doors to her bedroom
She loves that we have a balcony
She loves that we live in an apartment and it doesn't even feel small to her.
She loves that primary is so small (14 kids )
My plan is to keep focussing on the positives. . . And enjoy this little adventure.
