Life is short but it is wide….
Morning came easier today.
My type A personality does not rest well with indecision. But now, now I am free to plan, to dream, to enjoy.
It didn’t take me 24hours before I had budget set, a timeline drawn, checklists made and a plan executed.
I even had a new wardrobe picked out for the occassion (not actually)…
Cambridge. It’s a loaded word. And with the help of Amazon.ca I will try to unpack what I can academically (check out my new bookshelf page).
But it means more than just learning the history and sending my passionately talented husband to study music among giants. It is a chance for me to stretch my academic and creative legs which have been cramped into motherhood for the past 4 years.
And the kids: I am just as excited for them. They may be young but there is something about living in a different culture that adds to one’s character in a way that no other domestic experiences can.
They are getting so big and soaking it all in.
Not to mention they will have their mother in her element. Its something that I will expand on later but I change when I am overseas – when I am not surrounded by the comforts I have come to cherish. Perspective. I can’t wait. I can’t wait for them, I can’t wait for me, I can’t wait for Ben. Can. not. wait.
