Commencing Number Four in 3, 2...

Fourth what, you may be wondering.  That would be - somehow unbelievably to me - our fourth Coast Guard move.

Fourth!  So in no time at all, we'll be knee deep in boxes, sweaty movers, an ill-at-ease Pugbull, and that fluttery anticipation of a major life overhaul.  Again.

I'm sure it sounds a little implausible, but there's a significant part of me that actually enjoys the chaos and upheaval.

I know, how could I possibly enjoy the sometimes overwhelming disarray with my already ingrained penchant for tidiness?

Simple.  It's that impossible to ignore sense of expectation that comes when you're on the verge of a radical life shift.

It's not just the expectation.  It's knowing that all the changes, and planning, and packing, and travel will usher in a new chapter.

A new chapter that will bring a new home, a new job, a new environment to play in, and lots of other "news."  

Kodiak, Alaska to Sacramento, California?  I'm all in.

Now if I could just squelch the desire to fast forward the next few months.  And tame those damn butterflies in my stomach.

Ta-ta for now.
