I’ve spent the last 5 weeks on an amazing adventure that I will be adding to my blog in the coming weeks. Full of amazing pictures, funny stories, and some great family bonding.


For now though I am back at home in my childhood bedroom, it’s changed in the 10+ years I’ve lived away from home. New furniture, paintings, smells are only some of the changes. despite the changes it remains a sanctuary to me. A place I know I am always welcome. No matter how good or how bad things get in my life I know I am lucky enough to have a room full of memories and dog hair to go back to.

I use this room now to begin planning and preparing for what comes next. I could have stayed in Kuwait or I could have move on to a new country, where most of my worries about bills and housing are covered by my contract but I didn’t. I’ve taken a job in the school district where I grew up as a on-call teacher.

I need time to see if this is where I want to build my future. If I like small town life or if I yearn for city living or even the shores of some unknown far off country. I need time to see how much work I get on-call and if I can feasibly earn enough to live. I need to see apartments and rental suites. I need to get a phone, a car, a life. I need time to re-connect with old friends and make new ones.

I know that I can take all the time I need in my bedroom. A room that will always be home to my heart no matter how far away the rest of me may travel.

One thought on “Home

  1. You will ALWAYS be welcome in your childhood bedroom, just as we know that no matter where you are living your heart is with us in your childhood home. We love you and are so proud of the young woman you have become.
