Rainy Day Blues ....

Sometimes,  life will begin you on a journey that leads down a path you have never been on before.

You become breathless and unsure of where it will take you.  

Life is an adventure that must be lived.

But sometimes, that path ends up taking you right back to where you started from leaving you exhausted and you wonder - what will come next.

Not without direction but yet miles off-target.

It's easy to get lost.

Life is funny that way  - sometimes it will just take charge and starts pushing you where you don't want to go if you let it.

We will soon depart San Diego and return to Seattle.

I guess you could say we are leaving the beach to return to the sea.

We are not sad but then again we are not glad.

Life is what it is.

I will miss the blue skies - that's for sure.

After almost  5 months, 3 price reductions  and 2 offers we are still the proud owners of one fully primped & preened townhouse.

Fancy that!

Our nest is still feathered and in the end, we are grateful to have a soft place to land.

Mike has received a great job offer with a company he very much liked working for previously in Seattle and he is very excited to be returning to work with them again.

'Tutto è nuova vecchia nuovamente'   (Everything old is new again)

Such is life ...

Old job = new job.

Old house = new house.

Old friends = the best friends!

So, do I have the the Rainy Day Blues?

Nope, not at all but I sure will miss these sunny blue skies!

All I know is that we tried it, it didn't work out, so we are moving on.

I have never lived my life compelled to stay & watch a movie I wasn't enjoying just because it cost $9,  to finish a book that I'd lost interest in or eat a meal that I didn't like no matter who made it for me. 

Life is too short to eat cookies you don't like just because they were on sale.

I have everything I want and all that I need.

Mike & I are very happy to be moving on to another adventure.

'Finish every day and be done with it. 
You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. 
Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.'
 -Ralph Waldo Emerson -
