October 30, 2009

Not much to add. This weekend I'll be moving all the stuff I have in storage to a new - unleaking - unit. Once that is done, I can really concentrate on packing everything in the house.

I'm going to have to make lists - I can't seem to find a place to start - my normal reaction would be to crawl back in bed - but since I'm no longer working, I can't think of a good excuse to do it.

I have boxes of stuff for different people, waiting for them to come and pick up. I need to start another box for the thrift store. Decide what I'm taking to Angies, and separate out the stuff I'll be picking up in January for the trip.

Dr.'s visit went great yesterday. Blood pressure is down, and Doc says to keep doing what ever it is that I'm doing and it will be fine.

I've decided to take all my khaki work pants with me - and toss as I wear out. Actually, I think I'll "ungrow" them before I come close to wearing them out.

Well, time to go - Gotta make up that list, and start doing it!!!

To hear the Meadowlark sing

This blog is to follow my journey of re-discovery over the next year. The actually journey will not begin until the end of January, 2010. I'm going to spent the interim at daughter Angie's in upstate New York.

In the meantime, I must clear out of my apartment, place everything I want to keep in storage, and leave here no later than November 15. I have 5 days left at my job - I return from a shift so exhausted, I spend most of the day in bed, which is putting me in a real bind for getting everything done on time. But, I know everything will work out.

Today is October 23, 2009. Perhaps if I post what I accomplish each day til I leave, I'll feel pride bound to get more done.

Please bear with me, as this is my first experience at blogging, and I hit a wrong button during set-up and can't seem to find my way back!!!
