Okay, here's the news: As you know, over the holidays, I was away visiting my daughter and her family in North Carolina. I had thought about moving down to be closer to my grandchildren (and my daughter and her husband) but I figured it would take a while. I was thinking maybe in a year or so. After all it's a big move and I'm an old dinosaur.
But lo and behold, a nice unit (last one left) in a Senior Housing building (part of a gorgeous new development) suddenly was there for the taking. Brian (my son-in-law) and I happened to walk in (just to get information), heard the rent, saw the apartment (Brian said, "We'll take it!" as he crossed the threshold) and rushed out to get the required paperwork in order. We drove back to the house, Brian did some computer razzle-dazzle, then we ran back to the development, signed the lease and lo and behold, I'm moving to N.C. in five weeks.
No 'ifs, ands or buts' - the chance came and I took it. You know how they say that half of life is just showing up? Well, here's proof of it. Thanks to Brian and Skye, I'm headin' South.
You're never too old for a new adventure.
As to why I haven't been posting lately, well just got back a week ago and I've been packing ever since. I'll be packing (and down-sizing) for the next few weeks so the blog will just have to get along without me. You know what an ordeal packing up to move can be, so please bear with me.
I have a post for Wednesday (something I'd been working on before I left) and then for the rest of the time until the Big Move, it will have to be hit or miss.
In case you're wondering, I'm thrilled to be moving.
Wish me luck, my friends, I can hardly believe this is happening.
