Just this past weekend we dropped off donations to a shelter. I thought this kitchen set was the CUTEST! I would have loved this as a kid, even though I wasn’t the greatest at make believe it would have still been super cool. Anyway, we are always downsizing our “stuff” because we have been waiting for news about our move for two years now.
It is not all good. Reg is losing his job in the navy so we are becoming civilians again, jobless and homeless. We are going back to the west coast so Reg can retrain and I can stop suffering through winters that make me want to scream. I will be much happier physically but I tell you, it is all bittersweet.
Just on Monday I was finally feeling like there was a reason to get out of bed. The weight of the pain and sorrow over losing my Mom lightened for just a day and then I was hit with this bombshell. I have a feeling my mom had something to do with it. She hated the military and the fact that we have been waiting on pins and needles for two years.
So everything is going to change. We will probably become renters again, sandwiched in to a tiny apartment or condo or trailer or who knows what. All I want is a bright kitchen with a window. OK, it can be a big kitchen. I would like that.
OK, I am all freaked out so I am stopping it there. I was sickened when I got the news yesterday, life has been too overwhelming and too hard lately. Today I feel a bit more inspired and it is time to go through the house and let even more stuff go. We will be moving at the end of the year, ugh, another Christmas move. We have to stop doing that.
I just had to let my foodie friends know the news. And hey, do you think we should have a garage sale?
