Snowy day making it easy to stay in and unpack!

Woke up to snow; so today is a good day to keep cozy and use the time to unpack rather than explore the new neighborhood.

Truth is, I spent some of my youth and high school years in this general area either visiting relatives, or living in the next town..... it has changed, and so have the businesses, but it still has a good familiar feel to it. I am so grateful for that feeling and the abundant good memories....

At last...!

Everything is moved, and tonight is the first night actually sleeping here in the new place.  So relieved, so grateful, so cozy, so quiet......woo hoo!

Sometimes a simple update can calm us...

I have been readying for my move, although much more slowly than is helpful!  And the slowness in more mental than due to any colds or flu.

I got an update a few minutes ago that indicate I might actually have new keys in hand by close of business next Monday!

Even though there are still so many elements NOT pinned down, this news somehow was very calming. Maybe today I will get much more packed (both what I will keep, and what I will donate before the move).

I have several meetings and deadlines in the next few day also competing for my attention and energy. Hopefully I will be able to do just enough on all those issues.

Just enough would be a really great thing right about now....

Donations - Phase One

Even in an active snow storm, a truck and 2 guys came to pick up furniture donations!  I had moved everything ready into the hall so the snowy boots wouldn't stain the carpet already in dire need of a good steam cleaning!  The guys were grateful to have a few less steps to take!

I wanted to have kitchen goods, clothes, and books also ready for donation....but didn't manage to get it all done.  Luckily for me, I still have time, and if the donations can be carried by one person, they can schedule to come out with a smaller van and one person.

If all else fails, I can always drop the donations off when I have my moving truck for the big move. 

So, really, no worries....!
