Strange Places

Strange Places, originally uploaded by A!ison.

It was about this same time last year that we first got word that Special K’s company was moving to Orlando. We made the decision to relocate way back then. I remember trying to imagine what it would be like living in a new town, how I would get around and what would I discover that my mind could not visualize. We were so excited! But everything kept getting pushed back. Six weeks turned to two months. Two months turned into “the first of the year”. By February we were frustrated and doubted the move would ever happen.

And then it seemed in a blink of an eye we got word that we were moving. Even quicker seemed the whole transition! And before I could take in all that had ensued, I was on a one-way plane ride to Orlando.

Today, as I programmed my GPS to take me to Ikea and as I was driving there, I really tripped out on it all. What I had imagined over a year ago was a reality today. I no longer need to wonder what it’s like in a new town or how I figure out how to get somewhere. I still see this place like you would treat a vacation spot. My home is not really my home… yet. I guess it’s all still new and I can’t believe it… Do I really live in Orlando?
