Yes, I am moving again.
I am so grateful for the apartment I was able to use these past 5 months.
It provided a restful space.
The next month I will not have a "home".
I will be housesitting, highschool student transportation, cat care and who knows what else.
I came to the realisation a few months ago that I need to stop trying to get settled here. It is hard to be settled when you I am in the houses of others, living out of a suitcase.
I am so grateful for the ways people are helping me find places to stay in this transition.
I hope I can settle in early October when, Lord willing, the place I will live in for a time is available.
I look forward to making a home again. To having a place where you can come over for coffee, dinner, games, chatting, hanging out. But that dream is on hold.
On hold for two reasons.. one is that the place is not available yet and the other reason is because my home things are in storage in the UK still. I am walking one day at a time in this desire to settle into a place and make it "home".
That will help Portland feel like home too.
