Madly in Love






We are back in the Lone Star State.

Diva has started her new school and Engineer has been enjoying working from his new office. 
As for me, I am coordinating our lives from Team Moppins' temporary headquarters - a hotel room.

Yes, the three of us and our three dogs have taken up residence in a hotel for the time being as we transition from selling one house in one state and buying another here.

It sounds glamorous living with maid service, a concierge, and a gym down the hallway, but in reality, we are in each others space 24/7 and we are living small.  It is what I imagine life in a camper or tiny house to be like.

Before uprooting ourselves, I was on a loop telling my people that this experience "would be an adventure."  Mostly I needed to hear that on repeat for my own sake - my own sanity.

We could all very easily slip into a state of rage irritation having to gingerly dance around each other to do everyday tasks but instead it has been quite pleasant.  Maybe even...dare I say it...fun? 

I teased some friends saying this experience could go one of two ways at its end:  either we will not want to be near each other for a good long while or we will genuinely enjoy each other's company and grow closer as a family.

It's still early days but so far, we have really enjoyed living simply and we are making it work...cheerfully.

What more can I ask of my peeps?

1-4-3 EM & DM for embracing a spirit of adventure.
