With all our moves in recent weeks, from Brazil to my mom's house in Florida, to Elise's parents' house Cheney, now to our rental house in Seattle, we have had many "homes". I am sure everyone feels dislocated, because Elise and I feel dislocated. We've explained to them that we have many homes, a new one each week, in fact, until we get to our new home in Washington, DC.
Our Seattle home has been one of our favorites. It is small, yes, but it is ours, and we can leave a pile of laundry waiting to be washed on the kitchen floor, and toys on the living room floor, and our shoes by the door. And, of course, it's in Seattle.
