We’ve known for a while, we’ve had time to adjust. Time to wrap our heads around the idea. For the past few months we’ve been streamlining our life, de-cluttering, packing our lives in a box and getting ready for this moment.
Just over a week ago we pulled our kids out of school, packed up our life and drove over 2000km to the small country town we grew up in the Northern Territory.
For the last week we’ve been living in my father in laws house. Cooking, cleaning, disturbing the peace and just spending time together as a family.
It’s strange being back here with so many memories. We see people we knew from our past in the street. We stop, we chat, we laugh and it’s like we never left. But it doesn’t feel like home anymore, time has shifted and for us so much has changed but for those standing in front of us it’s like nothing has changed at all. Life still goes on as it always has and always will.
Right now time is all we have to give. How much of time we have we just don’t know. But each day we wake up and we smile and laugh and we let of steam and we roll through the motions. Dealing with each day and each hurdle as it comes.
