It’s July. How is that possible? In just a few weeks, we will have been back in Cambridge for a year. Our apartment feels much more like home now. Its imperfections are still here, but we are used to them. We have established some routines. We know when to avoid the laundry room and how to get rid of stuff that’s too big for the trash chute.
Our landlord has extended our lease for another year so we’re actually considering buying towels that match our bathrooms. We’ve gotten used to the sound of traffic and never tire of our wonderful view of the crews rowing down the Charles River at dawn.
Most of all, we are happy to be with our friends of so many years. And we’ve made some new friends too. We are happy to be back with our doctors although we wish we didn’t see them so often.
Do we miss anything about our life in Washington, DC? Yes. Being near our kids and grandkids was amazing. It just wasn’t enough.
