Eustress

My body is registering stress, even though I’m not consciously aware of it all the time. I’ve had a chronic headache off and on, and some tummy twinges this morning. We’re just over a week from leaving Albania and my to-do list is ticking along pretty well. My to-do list for our 2 months in the US is filling up frighteningly quickly, too, though. I want to work in at least 20 visits to Barnes & Noble. 🙂 Somewhere between replacing my driver’s license which I lost here, getting our visas for Colombia, working in doctor’s appointments and traveling to NY to meet with my dissertation committee, I hope to find some deep wells of down-time with friends and family. My mind is operating in three spheres at once – living and moving and being here, trying to be fully here as much as I can; dreaming and daydreaming about our 2-month Stateside sojourn; planning and strategizing for the move to Colombia.

Even despite the stress – I like it.

    So happy for you and excited about your move. I can relate to that kind of stress.

    When we return to the States it is generally for about three weeks at a time and there is never enough time to fit everything in. We have a long shopping list and an even longer people to see list. The time flies by so quickly but is so good to see family and friends.

    You are an amazing organizer of these many parts of life and geography. I hope it all goes well and you get to live in the moment during each phase of the next few months.
