Our household will uproot and move across several states in three weeks. Three weeks after that the kids start life at a brand new school and I dive into a new career. One of the tricks of this online thing is that the virtual me remains constant no matter where the physical me goes. By the same token, the greengirl me here has a fairly static being, no matter how frenetic and chaotic the life swirling around me may be. Of course this is just as true for everyone else, all of you; I think it's good for me to remember that sometimes.
The thing that happens when life gets this crazy is that I run out of time in my days and in my head. We literally don't have time for things to go badly between us, or to go particularly well, things just have to go. I guess that on some level, the fact that they do keep going is a good thing. I have to remind myself of that sometimes: just because we aren't in a phase of deep turmoil or serious angst, or of exponential growth or googly-eyed bliss, doesn't mean our relationship has ceased.
Oh- and just to make sure we don't get too complacent with the chaos, we adopted a dog this weekend too.
