Lately I’ve been thinking about all the changes we’ve been making around here, and how we have all been adapting pretty well and going with the flow. New house, new commutes, new routines, new chores, new garden spot ;), and on and on… Good job us!
One change that’s been particularly hard has been dealing with the kids school situations for next year. I keep wondering, should it be this hard? Is this a sign that I shouldn’t change? I don’t know… My older son is going to change schools starting next year and while enrolling in a new school is not a big deal, the day-to-day is more than just the school for most parents. We have to think about dropping off and picking up too. Finding an after school for the few hours that we need help was challenging and still not resolved completely. I keep thinking, we currently have a situation that is working very well, why am I stressing out so much about this? Should I not make the change? Hoping I get an answer that will help. 😉 Finding a place for our younger son was equally as challenging. I contacted twelve preschools in November and there were very few that had openings for next school year and are none are as flexible as our current school. I don’t know, I know that things change, and that we all have to adapt, but dude, change is hard!
The other change I am mourning is the loss of my precious Wilson Farm CSA. It seems silly to drive to Lexington for our weekly CSA share now that we’re in Natick, but I’m just sad that to make that change. Of course we will be fine and will love which ever CSA we decide to join this summer, but dude, change is hard.
We wouldn’t change our decision to move for anything. We are incredibly grateful for everything: our hard work, our health, our beautiful family and our new home, but can we all just admit that change is hard! And sometimes it feels good to say it out loud!!
Be well my friends!
