I'm in an awkward transitional phase these days. Trying to figure out what I'm about. I've been sick for a long time and that's dictated my personal agenda: Take care of yourself. Get better.

Now that I'm basically healthy what do I do? In the short term, I think I'll be trying to make our place feel like home. We moved here 9 months ago but I still feel unsettled.

My husband and I have been married for 15 years and have moved five times. There was one place we lived for several years consecutively and I remember feeling so connected there. Our house felt like ours - we'd painted, remodeled, planted things in the yard. We'd collected a nice network of friends inside and outside our church. I really want to have that here.
