I am moving away by choice. I am moving closer to my work and taking my faithful friend–BUDDY with me. Buddy is my dog that I’ve had for almost 14 years & wasn’t about to part with him. He still thinks he’s about five, too… 😉 I’m going to have to part with a lot of stuff because it is a small place, but I will have my privacy. I will also finally be able to sit back and do a lot of thinking–and actually be able to cook. However, fear not! I test my food before I let anyone else have it. If I can get around a kitchen without blowing it up, it is a miracle totally equal to the immaculate conception!
My books, dvds, jewelry and a few other things are going with me. However I do have to part with some things to get smaller things–like my TV and stand. They are too big to fit. Other than that, I have several things I will NOT part with that are smaller, and if no one comes to stay in the other bedroom, that is going to be my writing/computer room., but I’m sure Buddy is going to claim a corner to crash in! He always does!
I also look forward to living alone again. I actually look forward to being able to watch my Banshee dvd’s and such, which should arrive in July or the first part of August. I’ll have to change the order up to get it shipped to where I’m going. I’ll probably have them shipped to my workplace. I am going to get the poster and T-Shirt too. I love shows with good acting and logical plots–and despite the nickname of the Cinemax channel, this show has those things.
The only main drawback is that I will not get to see my grand kids as much. They are moving in the opposite direction. However, I hope they come to Midland to visit once in a while. I would lay down my life for my boys or the grand kids in a heartbeat. However, I always love a quiet evening sitting outside in a lawn chair, where the only sounds I hear are the wind, the birds and the occasional roar of thunder before I have to go back inside.
I also love the sound of rain hitting a tin roof, and the sight of the stars and the full moon–which I’ll also be able to enjoy. These are some of the things people take for granted. For me, it will be almost like a return to known territory–almost like a sanctuary, which I need so, so badly right now.
I will have a quiet place of my own so that I can get back to writing as well. I need that type of space to work on “Centuries Under the Moon” anyway. I really like the idea of having a female lead, with a female perspective on the modern world–despite the fact she died well over 200 years prior…
Anyway, have a great night.
