It hit me last weekend, you know?
This is my life now.
When we were invited to a sunnet on Sunday night, and my response was “I can’t, I have work in the morning”. That’s when I realized things are starting to become normal.
I was writing just a few months ago about how I felt like I was in some twilight zone. When I first came to Turkey it was like a vacation, I wanted to do everything and go everywhere. Then I was in a rut, not doing anything (not by choice), and not leaving the house for weeks at a time.
That was a dark time.
But now I’m starting to find that balance that people have when they live a normal life. I have work responsibilities, come home, clean and cook, get up and do it again. On weekends I do stuff with the hubby or see friends. When did I flip the switch towards normal?
I mean, we aren’t totally settled in to our lives yet. We still live with my in laws, but they’ve been gone for a few months at the summer house so we’ve had more space. Before you know it they’ll be back and maybe their presence will light a fire under hubby’s ass to get us out of here.
But then again, now they are talking about moving us downstairs into the gross bottom floor apartment. But that’s a story for another post.
In the meantime, I’ll keep striving for a new normal.
