Hermit Mode

We are finally moved in! There are still some small odds and ends at the townhome, but those will be picked up by this weekend. I still have to clean the place, but it is amazing how much easier it is to clean a place with nothing in it! We have the important stuff unpacked and the rest stashed in the garage or basement. Slowly but surely this house is starting to feel like home. I do have to keep reminding myself that we (hopefully) won't be moving any time soon. Ever since we got married every place we have lived we have known it would be temporary. It is strange to be putting down real roots.

The only bad thing is that my husband is out of town for the next month. He has some required training for work and he only got one week in the house before he had to leave. We knew this was going to happen, but we didn't know when. We were a little ticked that they only gave him 2 weeks notice. I thought I would be ok with him gone. I mean, he was gone for 4 months for the initial training and I handled that ok. And this is only one month! But, I have gone into what I like to call Hermit Mode. I cut myself off from the outside world, and I have to really fight to get anything done at home or at work. Even finding something to watch on TV is too much effort. So all I want to do is watch movies and eat!

I've been slowly fighting my way out of this funk. I started running again after a 3 week break. I was amazed how much fitness I had lost in that time, but I guess the important thing is that I've started again. I have been forcing myself to get stuff done at work and given myself a deadline to get the townhome cleared out. Plus I am going to reward myself with a massage at the end of the month!

Slowly but surely things will return to normal. I know that the warmer spring weather will really help!
