I Can’t Believe I Did This!!

NOTE: Click on the photos for captions. 🙂 On June 7th, I wrote in a blog that I was getting the itch to move. Honestly, I’d already had the first interview for the job I just accepted in Baton Rouge, but I really wasn’t…

Day 13: Relocation Mode – I’m Here!

I’m sitting in Starbucks in Denham Springs – the one on Lockhart Crossing. I went to Ms. Holden’s kindergarten right behind here when I was a kid. I can’t remember if anything was on this corner when I grew up, but there’s a Starbucks…

Day 12: Relocation Mode – Saying So Long for Now

I’ve laughed with friends all weekend about how fast this move is falling into place. I’m sure a month from now, I will talk to people who have no idea I’ve moved. I haven’t had a chance to call anybody. If they aren’t on…

Day 11: Relocation Mode – 48 Hours to a New Beginning

I opened my Language of Letting Go meditation book this morning, and this was the reading. Enough said…. sometimes, I just need to drink it up and shut my mouth. 🙂 Accepting Change One day, my mother and I were working together in the…

Day 9: Relocation Mode – It’s Party Time!

So, it’s been 9 days since I’ve given my notice at work. I’m hopeful – very, very hopeful. I have a buyer taking a second peek at my house on Sunday. My cousin Bonni has found me a potential rental house in Baton Rouge,…

Day 7: Relocation Mode – Old Routines

I’m hanging out at Starbucks on Sycamore View Road in Bartlett TN waiting on some coffee boxes and killing time while a prospective buyer is looking at my house. I used to work out this way for about 5 years. This Starbucks was my…

Day 6: Relocation Mode: Shifting Energy

Whenever I’ve moved, I’ve always envisioned a move like a seesaw. You know the seesaws we used to play on as kids? You always had to have people who were equal-sized on each end. Otherwise, one end would hover too high, and the other…

Day 4 Relocation Mode: Unpacking Emotions – Packing Boxes

NOTE: The only thing going on in my life for the next few weeks at least will be moving. So, if you don’t want to read about it, I’d say take a Midlife Moments vacation. Sorry, but I’ll go insane if I don’t write…

Day 2: Relocation Mode – Meltdown

I am sweating my ass off. I listed my house last night and met one of my cousins for dinner. She and her family are camping at a nearby state park with their grandkids. I haven’t seen my cousin since high school. It was…

Moving Through Moving … Enjoy the Ride

Today has been a day filled with notes from people who are disappointed that I’m moving and those that are happy to have me back. It’s been rather fun to be in touch and get supported in this decision to move home. It makes me…
