It Is Amazing What You Forget

When you are gone for almost 3 months.

The first thing is the traffic! I had forgotten what it is like to drive up around here. I got a bit spoiled down in Ocean City…yes, it gets crowded on the weekends, but the weekdays, there really is little traffic. I also think that you don’t notice it quite so much because we do not have to drive nearly as much. A lot is within walking distance, and even when you have to drive, you are only driving for about 5 minutes at a time. I go through much less gas during the summer.

And the next thing I forgot how cluttered my house is! My goodness we need to get rid of a lot of stuff. It is not just the kid’s stuff, but our stuff as well. I am still unpacking but we just have stuff all over the place. Kind of overwhelming actually. I am actually feeling the need to purge and reorganize. Let’s just hope that I can find the time to do it all.

Ah well…it is good to be home…

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Sounds like you are busy getting over summer! Which Ocean City were you at? NJ or MD? I know the NJ one well!

    Just don’t purge the stuff belonging to family – RJ has told me he has a new appreciation for family things.
