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.
