I recently gave some thought as to why the continual moving to a new place doesn't bother me. At least not much. Sure once in a while it can be challenging. But overall I find myself excitedly looking forward to moving on to another place, another house sitting job. Why?
I realized that many housewives, at one time myself included, enjoy moving the furniture around once in a while and redecorating their homes. Some even have a summer color scheme and a winter color scheme. My mother in law has different flower arrangements she brings out each season. Many women, wives, mothers are constantly changing their environment.
Guess what? I can fulfill that longing for a different environment any time I want! I've realized that the moving on to a new place is like redecorating for me. Except I don't actually have to spend any money on decor. I just go to the next house sitting job and have a new place to call home in new surroundings for a bit. It's the best!
Something else I've come to realize is that until now I've never really chosen where I want to live. I mean I have out of necessity in the past chosen a place that was close to family, etc. But I'd never even thought of settling down outside of California where I was born. Now that I've seen so much more of the country I know there are many other beautiful places to live. Before settling down again, I need to see lots of them so I know where I really want to live this time. I can choose!
So, I'm traveling looking for that ideal place (at least until we make it to Ireland). :)
