Living Two Lives

I am seriously living two lives presently.  I have one life in upstate New York.  Things are well organized there.  I have one husband and one child and a routine that is comfortable and stress free for the most part.  I am living in an apartment, so if something is wrong, I can call the very nice man and he will come and fix it.  I can clean the whole apartment in about an hour and a half. 

Then, I have a house in South Jersey.  I have gardens to take care of that have been neglected for the year and a half we have been away.  I have a basement under construction.  I have a house that has many, many jobs waiting for me when I visit. 

My life in NY has me up early every morning and  busy for the first few hours, but then the pace slows and I have choices to make as far as what I want to do with my days. 

My life in NJ is filled generally from the minute my feet hit the floor in the morning until I am collapsing into bed at night.

I love both of my lives, but they are so different, it sometimes startles me when I switch from one to the other.

I am looking forward to a day when I can clean my home in an hour and a half and putter through the rest of my day. I like your NY life. :)

PS. Next week I will putter through my days even if we aren't going all the way to Nova Scotia. The Finger Lakes are nice too.

Oh for sure, Martha! It is a good life. I sure do miss my other kids and family and my little house on the meadow, but am so thankful for this time of rest and relaxation that God has given me. It is a gift.

When you move away again, I will have to come visit your little house on the meadow.

Yes, please!!!! We can go to Philadelphia and see all of the historical sights!

Oh, that will be so much fun! I will do everything in my power to make it all come true. :)
