One Year Ago Today …

Craig & I pulled out out of my parents’ driveway and I had my hand pressed against my face. The radio was playing (seriously) an R.E.M. song:

It’s the end of the world as we know it.
It’s the end of the world as we know it.
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

(seriously!)

Craig just looked at me and changed the station.

Sudden storm, Taupo

As we were leaving Taupo I burst into tears (I was on edge most of the day) and at the same time it started raining.
We could see blue sky out the windows but the rain was super heavy. Craig looked over at me and joked “Maybe it’s you” which made me laugh just-a-little. Shortly afterwards I stopped crying. And the rain? stopped. I seriously control the world. Didn’t you know?

One year ago Craig and I drove from Wellington to Auckland on our way to Australia, Thailand, Singapore, & London.
Today we spoke to the people who employ us and all but begged them to help us stay here. We love our life in London. We love our flat. We miss New Zealand but it’s not the best fit for us at the moment.
Our fingers are so so so crossed.
