Mood: Sad

I don't know why for sure, but I am feeling blue. It is Tuesday night, 10:59 pm. Everyone is in bed, my house is oddly clean. I am getting a chance to catch up with things...things meaning picture posting, blogging, emails,...:) Yet, I feel unsettled. I usually don't post things like this, but why not? This is, after all, my digital diary. "It's my blog, and I'll bitch if I want to." (singing that to the tune, "It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To."-can't stop singing now;0)

Nothing is wrong. Actually, everything is really good. The kids are healthy, I love my new house, my husband, my friends,...I think I know why I am in a funk. This happens every year around this time. We are leaving Naples for the summer. In less than two weeks, we will be gone again. Don't get me wrong, I lOVE going to Michigan. My family, oldest friends, family vacations, BBQ's. I love it all. It is just that, it is hard to leave your home for that long. I am leaving my teacher friends, who, of course have the summer off in which time I will miss the get togethers. I am leaving my house, that needs a lot more TLC. I am leaving my routine. My comfort zone...the kids' comfort zone as well. My sanctuary. Damn, still singing that tune:)

Transitioning from state to state is hard for me. It is hard to leave home, yet exciting to see family. Then, after an exciting filled summer, I will say goodbye to family. It will then be hard to come home.

I guess after living here for 9 years, Naples has become my home. It didn't take that long;0
Oh well, I guess there are more important things to worry about other than my freedom to go away for two months. I'll suck it up and really enjoy my last two weeks of summer here in Florida!!! It will take me a few days, but I'll get into the "move" one of these days. D7 here we come!
I'll miss my friends here tho...love you guys!

This too shall pass! "Funks" help you to appreciate the good times!

The best way to get out of a funk is to get outside with the kids and let them giggle away while playing in the sprinklers. Or something like that. Sounded good huh?

What size is your header?

My header is 900px-when I uploaded new pic for the header...I checked the shrink to fit box too.:):) Can't wait to see the changes!
