As most of you know, I have just moved. Again. 6 months ago I moved to a place that I knew wasn’t home, but I thought I had a year befpre uprooting myself. Was I ever wrong! Whew, has this been one heck of a month!
Since the subtitle is “one woman’s tips etc…” all I can say is, I had no idea that it was coming, this move. I thought maybe I had 3 or 4 months. But one month to move out? Do I have a tip for you about this move? No. I am still recovering! Catching up on my sleep, my thoughts and my life.
So, use those moving tips I gave you back in August. And toss out stuff you really don’t want to move again. That is one good tip. Lessen your clutter. Very, very important. When your surroundings are less cluttered, it makes your whole being feel freer and less cluttered, too. Try it. Take a deep breath and throw away the unnecessary junk.
I am still recovering, I think, from the move and the flu that I had just before the move. But I am thinking that all of this experience is giving me more fuel to my writing fire. I have decided to write a book. Yep, a real book for adults. Not a racy romance (I can hear my kids’ comments now; “Who ARE you???”), but a bigger book of thoughts, tips, observations, etc. of the whole experience of my life. It has been full. Full of a lot of crap, but tremendously full of good stuff too. And I want to share those things.
In the meantime, know that I had to update the order form for my children’s books. Here it is. I will do my best to update the previous attachments.
So, mittens last, Always say, “Thank you” at the end of every day. Here are my 3 Things: 1) I found a house to rent. It was only 3 weeks from when I found out I had to move to when I moved into this place. It’s not perfect, but it sure is getting to be home! 2) It’s near one of my good friends from work. There is someone close by who I can call if I am in a jam. Or if I want to eat some jam with someone. I am not alone which makes my kids glad. 3) I have a woodstove that is almost ready to fire up and keep me warm. Getting the stove and getting it ready to use is another story, but I am truly thankful for the experiences I have lived through. They keep making me stronger. Watch out Arnold.
Have a good one y’all, and get your priorities in order. Underpants First, Mittens Last!
