Tomorrow is a big day for us at Undisclosed.
We take another solid step away from our roots and get ourselves established with a new physician for our “golden” years.
It’s hard, as anyone who has moved to a new area can attest to, to start all over again. We both shared the same physician at our old spot.We are going to do it again, but we have two separate appointments to meet up with him.We have our histories written for him, so that’s done.We just have to get in there tomorrow and hopefully,he will prove to be a good fit for us.
I have something on the burner for tomorrow afternoon:depending on what happens, it might be another blog post….stay tuned!
We had a full day of rain today.
What’s the old school saying? It makes the flowers grow? It cleans the air of all the pollen, snow, pollution,fill in the blank ________.
There is something nice about a full rainy day on a Saturday.Not a rainy week, mind you, or three rainy days in a row, but a rainy Saturday.
You get up in the morning when the spirit moves you.Things seem to go a little slower.When the girls and I walk, we are walking slower because it must make the smells more attractive to the girls.Not too many people are out so the world is a little quieter, except for your footsteps and the sound of the rain.
The highlight of the day?
The salt got cleaned off the car…..lol.
It’s St. Valentine’s Day.
I know a lot of single friends and there are all sorts of witty sayings going around on Facebook to either jab at those without a mate, or to commiserate with them.I feel for single folks, as I was one for 42 years and do remember what it is like.
For the past 15 years, I have been blessed to have Jim in my life.It was the classic 42 year-old spinster and the 48 year-old bachelor and yet here we are, almost 13 years later in our marriage, and it is safe to say that Jim still makes my heart skip a beat.
It’s funny,because I went to see 50 Shades of Grey with my neighbor last night, as Jim deemed it a chick thing.Yet for all the images conjured up by the movie,my best friend, lover and husband is indeed the one who makes my heart still skip a beat.We haven’t gone through children, only fur kids which can be up there with human children,deaths of parents,selling houses, moving, buying houses,jobs,retirement,illnesses, and, well, you catch my drift.We are on the road to hopefully growing old together,hoping that we are that blessed to accomplish that.
If you are reading this and single,I would tell you to hang in there if you are still looking, or good for you if you are comfortable in your current situation.If you are married like me, I hope you had a marvelous St.Valentine’s day.Savor love all 365 days a year, not just today.If you have lost your love one,cherish their memory!
I am tired.
News flash, right?
Seriously, I need to get my act together and get back to unpacking and donating and washing and trying to figure out what to keep and what to trash.
Did I mention I hate moving?
The first 2 weeks it gave me something to focus on, and it was ok.Now we are almost at the one month mark and I went into the middle room, looked at it and closed the door and went back out. I mean, seriously….there has got to be a better way. I have convinced myself that a chunk of tomorrow will be dedicated to getting in there and clearing some of it out.I admit, it didn’t help today that my favorite show, Law and Order Criminal Intent, was on today which kept me toward the front of the house.I am going to try Netflix on my Kindle tomorrow and hopefully it’ll get me back in motion of fixing the house up right.
Film at 11.
The fun began.
So here I am with the rest of my life ahead of me and a big bunch of moved items.
I never have the energy or inclination to pack or unpack.Because I am a sentimental fool who has memories of basically everything and feel sad, albeit I do get excited at change, I admit, I tend to reflect quicker than I do look forward.I cherish the memories I do have, and especially having a Mom who had dementia, realize the importance of them.
It’s a new day, however, and it’s the classic “first day of the rest of my life.”
Pardon me while I get back to moving boxes and black bags.
I am home tonight with my girls, as Jim took an entire SUV full of our belongings down to Undisclosed. I tried to talk him into staying down there for tonight, as I know tonight is amateur hour, and I am worried about his safety on the road.He is determined to come back tonight though…
The girls and I just got back in from our last walk of 2014, taking in some neon Christmas lights.
I wish you all a happy and healthy 2015!
The stress of moving is really catching up to the both of us.
Jim actually helped me do the chocolate covered pretzels that we give neighbors every year at the holiday.We had packed the car up almost to the hilt today, and it had the odd feel of being a Beverly Hillbilly trip to the house today.While going through motions of moving things in and walking the girls for a healthy trek, it has left muscles in a big fat knot.
A hot shower and off to bed! That’s the ticket!
