While it seems, based on recent posts (hello Thailand!), that life has been one adventure after another, the day-to-day has actually become much more grounded in the past 6-8 weeks. A necessary but rather painful “face-the-music” experience as we settle into Colorado and search for jobs and also our souls. I never expected that leaving California would present so many amazing opportunities and, to be honest, challenges. Just about a year ago, the idea of Switzerland became a reality, but still very much in the idea stage. Who knows what I expected from life post-Switzerland? I didn’t have a concrete idea, but I can’t deny that I had certain expectations. You know, either Michael or I would find a job in Boulder or Denver and we would settle in, life might present a few surprises, but we’d be just fine.
