I am having a rough morning.  My mom went home today and I'm starting to feel homesick.  I was fine until I dropped the kids off at school.  Then I felt panicky and alone.  And very far from home.

I pulled myself together and stopped hyperventilating, but I still have an uneasy feeling.  I love my house.  I love the kid's school.  Brian has a great job.  But this is not home...yet.  In my head, Baltimore is still home.  I even watched an O's spring training game last night :)

I don't know if we will be here forever.  We could stay for 20 years, we could leave in 5.    Either way, I need to make Seattle my home.  I need to get involved, make friends, and take advantage of all the wonderful things this place has to offer.

I know this will not happen over night.  This tight feeling in my chest will stay for awhile longer.  I will miss my friends, family, and the comfort of Baltimore.  But I will make the most of this amazing opportunity I have been given.


  1. Oh, I can so relate to this. Home for me is Philadelphia and I am living in Rhode Island. RI is beautiful and we have made a wonderful life but after 8 years, I still have a hard time considering it "home" Hang in there!

  2. awww! I hear you. Looking forward to our visit this Friday morning! it takes time to really settle in somewhere, doesn't it? Take good care.
