a little nervous...

I've been gone for a week, and tomorrow I'm heading home. I'm nervous because I hate flying. I'm a control freak. But aside from that, I'm nervous to see whether my worms and plants are still alive, whether the trash and recycling were brought out to the curb, and whether my house is a total mess.

It's been a great week...I've connected and reconnected with a lot of people...high school friends, college friends, all sorts of other friends, some of whom I hadn't seen in years. It's hard living away from everybody I know, so it's been really good to remind myself about what I value at the end of the day.

It's also been really nice in some ways to just be soooo busy catching up with people that I haven't even had time to think about blogging. It's been good to step back and reflect, ruminate, ponder, and just think about the changes I've made, the ones that I should have, but haven't yet made, and the ones I will make. It's also been a good reminder for me about how not really working all that much has actually been pretty valuable for me in a lot of ways. More on all of this in the coming days.

Now I'm heading back home though, so you'll be hearing from me more regularly again. And hopefully I'll figure out the mess with the technical stuff. Ugh.

Well, I hope your flight home was...tolerable and that home is a haven. I'll check in on your insights.

To my beautiful daughter ~ Words can't express how much we enjoyed having you home with us for a week. I am glad that you had a fun time reconnecting - it is important. Glad that you had a safe flight. Take care and remember who loves you back here in NH ~ mom.
