I only really have one home at this point, and that’s my parents’ house. In a few minutes, I’ll be leaving for a visit. I’m coming back on Saturday, because David’s coming into town on that day, but I really think I need this. I think it’ll give me some perspective, and also room to relax. I love my in-laws, and they have been so great to us, but I’m not comfortable here, and I’m tired of feeling like a horrible ingrate. I think maybe if I go someplace where I am comfortable for awhile, I’ll be able to return refreshed.

So, I’ve packed the little old blue suitcase someone gave us, and when I’m done with this post I’ll pack the laptop bag, and I’ll throw some snacks and drinks into my lunchbox and be off.
