"survival + acceptance + adaptation = "a new kind of normal"
While reading and catching up on what's been going on with everyone I noticed a new update on Go West Feral Woman. What this woman has been through would make most of us crawl into the deepest darkest cave we could find and wail like a banshie. But not her, she has such strength, such grace, such humor.
The code she has determined to live her life by is so simple, so perfect, so profound, I know she will not mind if I borrow it for myself. "A new normal, that's what I have been struggling with, like a have any choice. There is no choice, things have changed and I need to do exactly what she suggests, accept, adapt and get to my new normal.
We had our first full day in our winter home yesterday. The weather, of course, was beautiful. We went to a really big happy hour at the neighbors last night and caught up with a lot of our friends. There were a lot of " what I did over the summer" conversations. Izzy is thrilled to meet all of her doggie friends.
I am trying to reorganize the coach, wish I had my sisters here, we could have it done in no time. As soon as I put something in it's new perfect spot, I realize that just won't work and start all over again. Oh well, I have all winter to get it right!
