Adjusting to a new Climate

Monday, September 1, 2014
Alicia and I were talking this morning about what success would look like this week. Alicia mused that, "I'd be happy if we could just keep both kids in school and not home sick this week!" Clearly our standards aren't too high! LOL! But seriously, our kids are obviously still trying to adjust to the different climate in Florida.

In fact, we all are. I'm trying to train for a half marathon and running in this weather is a real challenge. Alicia has been sick as well and our kids have just been drained at times in the day. I've never experienced this level of humidity with this kind of least not since visiting places like Singapore and Hong Kong, which are nearer the equator and tropics. Florida is a different beast for sure.

We left Great Lakes Navy Base thankful that that climate (desperate cold and high pollen count) were over and yet we're learning, as we always do, that each climate has its own blessings and challenges.

I guess the important thing to remember is to enjoy where you live and understand that the grass isn't always greener on the other's just a different kind of grass, that's all.

How do you deal with moves and cystic fibrosis? Thoughts?
