Working on saying "see you later"

I didn't realize my last post was on May 25th. That was before Bart came. And the girls had programs. And my computer time got hi-jacked. And my husband forced took me/us to Italy for a long weekend vacation. Now he's gone again and there are 17 days left before we make our final departure. I just don't feel ready.

I'm ready to have my husband around all the time again. A month long break will do that for a girl (at least this one!). I'm ready to have my very own house again. I'm really looking forward to that! I'm ready to stop making so many lists and having so many things rolling around in my head. I'm ready to speak English on a daily basis but will miss my feelings of accomplishment at managing conversations in German.

I'll miss my view - I'm not ready. I'll miss the late evenings where you look out the window and still see light in the West at 10:30pm - not ready.

Most of all, I will miss some very dear people. People I would not have met had I not moved to Switzerland. But I'm ready to live near people I've missed because I have lived in Switzerland.

So I'm filling my time with getting ready to go and spending time with the people I'll miss. The Blog is suffering I know but for the few of you who check it out, I think you understand.

That said - I will be posting pic's from the weekend in Italy. The Italian Riviera. Oh, my goodness. My husband spoils me. And our girls. It was a great trip to end our adventure here. Minus the drive to and from but that's for the next post.

It's tough isn't it? Bittersweet is the word. Praying for you.
