Packing Bags



the Junkie book will remain closed for the coming quarter (May-June-July). If you scroll down a couple of posts you'll find one saying Am Back! And if you wonder sweet bunnies what's happening, well am setting a new paradigm for moving cities! We got to move to a new city and mind ya I still have some unpacked bags since I stepped in this house last July.

Now Jill, was it you who used the phrase "moving house like a warm Indian breeze"?...well, quite literally it's been happening with me! Whoever wrote the line "When was the last time you did something for the first time"? Am by default doing something new, even if it is something as banal as closing one door and entering a new house through another!

There's always excitement in fresh pastures. But at times (or frankly many a time) am exhausted scrambling to pick up my dreams on my way only to see them quickly and forcefully tossed wayside...and am tired of bending my back trying to pick them up again. Lemme see how life pans out for me. For the moment, let's live today.

Ya it's difficult, especially with young kids. But it's surprising how well your mind adapts and things get easier as you take those long tough strides!

Good luck with your move, Thoma. Moving is so hard especially if you haven't felt settled in your last place. It feels as though we think we make our own decisions in life but often life makes them for us. I hope your new pastures are very green!

Thoma:
Moving again? You sound like a nomad to me :-) Agreed with the rest never easy for house moving, had that experience twice a year last year. Hope is a smooth move to you. Stay in touch.

warmest regards,
Yin

Candice said...

Eek! I've been so wrapped up in my own moving drama that I never stopped to think other people could be going through it too. I'm sorry! I hope everything is okay. If its not, you can always drop me a message and we can commiserate. Believe me, I'll understand. Moving is HORRID. I hope everything goes well for you guys as you settle into your new home.
