It's hard, trying to pack up and sell off our life here, stay well at work, and keep some sort of family chemistry in tact. Really hard. We've done pretty good, for the most part, over the past few weeks, but as the departure inches closer and life is uprooted, we've begun to crack a bit.
Today, we tried to ground ourselves, even if just for a few minutes, by taking a walk around our neighborhood. It helped. A little.
I think we need to do more of this - even at the cost of selling more things or having our bags packed with time to spare.
