moving on...



I'm moving soon. No not here but moving to a delightful little house in an older neighborhood close to the school where I teach. I think I'm going to be very happy in this house but the move itself is a tad overwhelming. But as moves usually go, I will wait until the last minute and then panic and start throwing things in boxes and somehow it will all work out.  I promised myself I would start early and be really organized this time but I don't think that's going to happen. Life tends to get in the way and I procrastinate and make excuses. I should at least make a list, isn't that what people do when they are getting ready to move? Even making a list seems overwhelming at the moment. 

Still...once I get moved there will be sunbeams and bluebirds...I just know it!

Good luck on the move. I've never made a list in my life. I tell myself that this is a sign of genius.

Love the trailer photo. I might want to use it to illustrate one of my stories sometime.

Okay great that's what I will tell myself too!

Use it anytime you want...actually I thought of you and some of your trailer park narratives when I took it.

oh geez, a move is difficult. i hope that it goes as well as possible. As Woody Allen said "Change is good, i just dont want to be there when it happpens". It will be good...when you recover from the work and chaos. my best.

Yes well you could help with your one-handedness! :) Or just be there to talk when I'm going crazy and I'll do the same for you.

They say that moving house is one of the most stressful things you can, only divorce and the death of a loved one are more stressful!!

Good luck, hope it works out right in the end, I'm sure it will. I moved from a full three bedroom house to a one bedroom apartment last year, had to distribute a lot of stuff to make it work!!

Thanks Paul, yes I'm feeling the stress but hoping for the best! I'm moving from a big house with loads of family to a small house by myself...we'll see! :)

I had no idea you were moving too. Try not to stress too much and just dwell on how nice the sunbeams and bluebirds will be in the peace and quiet...smiles.
