Most of you know by now that I am moving to Georgia on April 1st. This has brought mixed emotions, but for the most part, I am very excited and eager to get to my new home and get settled. This whole thing is definitely messing with my blogging schedule though! Instead of posting and visiting this is what my days usually consist of……
Boxes, boxes and more boxes are piling up in the dining room. Bubble wrap, plain newsprint and those little Styrofoam peanuts are everywhere. Have you ever noticed how those little peanut thingys end up everywhere, much like Christmas tinsel?
Sister and I are packing up our own belongings, deciding who will take what that belonged to our parents and patiently trying to divide up those household items we have bought together in the last ten years. For the most part, this is going very smoothly, but sometimes little things erupt into
small disagreements. Funny, we had no problem deciding she would take the couch and chair and I would take the stove. She would take the microwave and vacuum cleaner, while I take the kitchen table. So what caused the rift you ask? A pillow, a little gold pillow, whose beads are starting to fall off and whoever ends up with it will have to track down matching beads for the repair. Silly I know, but I don't believe it is the pillow, just the stress that goes along with the whole situation. No matter what the situation, the physical act of moving is never fun. Normal schedules are interrupted and looking around your home full of boxes and realizing that you packed something you need right now doesn't help.
But at the end of the day, you realize that a new adventure awaits and for a wanderlust like me, this is a good thing. I'm looking forward to exploring new beaches and traveling up the Eastern coastline. I've been all the way up the Pacific Coast and I plan to do the same thing on the Atlantic. My favorite way to travel is by way of roadtrips, so my little car is going to get lots of miles added on.
So, I'm sorry I haven't been around as much as I usually am, I really do miss you all. I know things will return to normal soon. I am very confident in this assessment. Why? Because the other morning as I was looking for a little something sweet to have with my morning coffee, I spotted a fortune cookie from our last delivery. This is what I found when I cracked it open……
How cool is that?
