I'm headed back to Kansas City today from Seattle. It's been a good trip, and I feel like I've been useful while I've been here. Staring out the large picture window at my brother's place and seeing the amazing view this morning reinforces how absolutely beautiful this city is. It would take a lot of getting used to in order to live here, especially as driving on some of the hills scares the shit out of me. It brings me around again to the idea that I'd like to end up in a city that I already know. I'd rather not have to learn yet another new city. I can do it, but it just gets old after a while to keep getting used to living in a place only to pick up and move to a new one where I have to start the whole process over again. That being said, it doesn't mean I can't enjoy this stunningly gorgeous day and view while I'm here.
I'm not 100% sure I'm ready to put down roots, but I feel like I'm closer now than I may ever have been. Maybe that's the sleep deprivation from getting up at 5am talking. I suppose we'll see.
Fortunately, Eric is doing well after his knee surgery. He's up and about with a bit of a limp and keeping the crutches nearby just in case. I'm glad things went so well especially as I'm sure he's been less than thrilled with being so limited in what and how much he can do. Fingers crossed that the rest of the healing goes as well as it has so far.
