232 Square Feet. That doesn’t seem like much, does it? No, it doesn’t. No, it isn’t. To say that we trip over each other is an understatement. Poor cat has been stepped on multiple times – and he doesn’t appreciate it.
Privacy is almost nonexistent, and cabin fever will set in very quickly. If it were fall or winter, I guarantee that we would be spending a lot of time outside. But it’s the middle of a hot, humid summer. No one wants to go out. But we are learning to deal with it. One of the girls had a mini-meltdown the other night because she wanted to live in a real house again. She got over it.
I’m actually really enjoying it. We have a lot of face time…not just FaceTime. I’ve spent the last 10 months pulled in a million directions and I’m sad to say it was to the detriment of my family. One of the pitfalls of my personality type (ISTJ) is getting the job done, come what may. And while it is a good thing to get things accomplished, it’s not a good thing when it’s unbalanced, and family and self-care take a back seat. I’m trying to learn not to let this happen, but I don’t always succeed.
So part of this summer adventure is connecting again. Connecting with God and each other. Moving forward in a healthy way.
I’ve no idea where this adventure is taking us. But we are following the Leader. And He’s never led us wrong.
