Moving on Up and Out!

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Well folks, I have talked about moving before, but the time wasn't right. I have determined that the time is right-now, and am very happy with my decision.

I just ordered a nice set of cheap boxes through Amazon, along with 3 wardrobe boxes, as it really is easier to just place all your clothes on a hanger and move them that way. It is so easy to place them in your new closet.

I have lived in the Los Angeles area since 1989, basically just about as many years here as my home state. I am returning home. I am returning to trees, green and more space. Los Angeles has a lot of advantages, but traffic isn't one of them.

I will pack a little at a time and my goal is to have everything packed up & ready to go by January 2013.

I look forward to the new chapter of my life, which I will be sharing with my sis, three pooches, and two birds.

Sometimes, change is good.

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through
continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for
our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent.--Martin Luther King, Jr.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we
leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before
we can enter another.--Anatole France

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight
harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs
at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary,
decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.--C. S. Lewis

    The picture you posted is certainly more beautiful than LA. What state are you moving to? Best of luck with your packing. Keep us posted on your progress.

    Good luck! I left L. A. 8 years ago and haven't looked back. I am not quite home where I want to be but am in a far better place. I hope everything is as you would like it to be in your new home. Sounds wonderful. emoticon

    Moving from LA sounds like a great idea! Moving is hard work, but it leaves so many opportunities for positive change and growth. Good luck with your move.
