Well, I’m down to 2 1/2 more days at home before I fly off to my ‘new life’. It’s been a challenge to sell almost everything I own and even more challenging dealing with Craigslist folks.
It’s strange looking at an empty house without getting emotional about it, but I’ve kept a pretty even keel so far. Just trying to do what needs to be done on as little sleep as possible. I think I’ll have it covered…well, I HAVE to have it covered…by end of day, Tuesday.
So here comes the end of another life chapter and the beginning of a new one. It’s strange not knowing at all which way this will go. Living in major cities my whole life and then taking up residence in a sleepy beach town of a couple thousand will be shocking, I’m sure. I’m just looking at it like I’m going on vacation, just staying longer (like I always want to). I find that living in the moment saves my sanity. If I start thinking about the future I get overwhelmed and anxious…maybe even scared. So I’ll just take it bird by bird, as Grandpa used to say and see what happens!
