It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Packing ...

My suitcase is almost as big as the car and now I think it is heavier than the car.
These are the clothes and shoes that I will need to wear for the amount of time that it will take for me to find a home and have the movers deliver my furniture . So it might be a little while.

I only packed nice summer things .. not many shoes. I can shop when I get there.
But ... I could not lift the bag to get it in the car.
After measuring, I discovered that it is too big to go in the back with the crate which is about the same size as the suitcase.

I need a larger car.

It isn't even about how much is in it ( that would be the weight which might kill me ) but the general size.. the large dog crate and suitcase fill the back of the car .. I think .. I couldn't get the suitcase lifted to actually test it ..

And there aren't even that many shoes packed !!

And I don't know if the back door of the car will close .. sloping car door, straight up and down case.

I am contemplating ...
1- take a lot of clothes out of the bag .. ship them.
2-get a bigger car .
3- leave the clothes for the movers and go shopping upon arrival. (this is my favorite idea)..

I guess the only thing to do is just repack and take a smaller bag and go straight to Anthropologie upon arrival.
There really is no other solution.
Poor me.
Being forced to shop.
sigh ~


  1. Oh, my. Poor you. You are cracking me up. :-) Enjoy shopping!

  2. I just moved the suitcase with clothes I will never wear from one room to another.
    I am now unable to bend . I may never be able to skateboard again .. not that I ever did but now I won't.

  3. You'll have to take up surfing :)
    Maybe you can ship some clothes and shoes to your daughter's house?

  4. I am moving to an area near where my daughter lives. I am using a big moving company. They will bring everything down for me. If I don't have a place, they will store it until I do then deliver.
    I can shop in Fl. in fact. I can't wait to shop in Florida !

  5. I am very happy to read you have sold your place in the cold north and you are getting prepared to drive to Florida. I wish you joy, good health,finding the perfect home, new friendships and a happy life.

    Happy Easter
