It is funny...

It is funny when you move... we expected so much to change but have been remarkably surprised at how much is the same. Before we left we had dinner with the Thompson family. John said something that stuck with us. It went about like this: "When you go you take all your weaknesses and problems with you." The Thompson family had recently moved and returned from Fiji, so we took this to heart. And it is true. Our same struggles materialize here. Our same tendencies and habits. Some we are still trying to shed and leave behind (ie. raising our voices at the kids) and some bring us comfort...

For example, the infamous "dish." After 3 years of marriage, we finally gave up our constant battle against "crap collection" areas and embraced designating them. One of these is "the dish." And when we packed up- we stuck it neatly in its own box and now we have finally pulled it out again. In all its glory.

It resides on our bookcase and this now feels a little more like home.
