:: settling in ::

{ it's like even our backyard is welcoming us home. see the originals and a few more here. }

each day as i delve further and further into my new community, there's a new discovery and a new emotion.

when i went to check out the library (actually there are two in my new town), i was disappointed (the kids' sections at each were small and crowded; the toys left something to be desired).

at the town hall i felt frustrated (i couldn't find what i was looking for and when i asked for help the woman didn't understand what i wanted).

but this morning? when i went to target, i was thrilled (it's new, it's shiny, it's laid out just like our target back in ohio).

our neighbors keep asking if we're all settled, and of course the answer is no. we're not settled in physically, and i'm still definitely not settled in psychically. it's going to take awhile, don't you think?

Yes, I think it takes a while to get settled in. But it sounds like you are having some fun exploring while you settle, so why rush it?
