Change, Lovely Change


This change is sudden
The last week has been a doozie. When I started this blog I assumed we’d be in the fifth-wheel for years. Instead, right after Christmas Day, the kitchen floor had unbearable soft spots. So, we moved everything out of it and sent it to the dealer for warranty. Graciously, my in-laws offered to have us move in, possibly for years should we decide to sell the fifth-wheel. This is a big change for us though, especially our daughter since we have lost a degree of independence. 

When you move out for the first time, you enjoy freedom. You eat when you want, you sleep when you want, you can do all sorts of things as long as you don’t annoy your landlord and neighbors too much. We also have the added bonus of teaching the in-laws to hold off on treating us as kids.

Free, like a bird
Regardless of all of this, things are great. We didn’t have to move into an apartment. Emma still knows her in-laws very well. The fifth-wheel may finally have the weakness of the floor fixed. I am choosing joy in all of this despite the potential for negativity. My wife is very helpful in focusing on the good. Things will work out in the end.
