Tonight I told my next-door neighbors on both sides that Saturday is moving day.

They have been awesome neighbors. I hope the guy who is buying my house appreciates them as much as I do.

We stood outside and chatted and watched the (kind of underwhelming, tbh) blood moon rise in the east.

It was lovely.

Tomorrow begins the intensive packing up and moving out that will culminate in transporting beds and pets to the apartment.

If you're hoping to read about other topics for the next several may be disappointed. I'll try to write about politics or monkeys, but honestly my mind is going to be on leaving my home, my husband, my marriage, and my life. Funny how that is.

I'm kind of psyched, but also really terrified. And still not 100% convinced that the house sale won't fall through and leave me destitute. In 10 days I'll know, one way or the other.

Ten days. Pfffft. This has been coming for almost three years. What's 10 days, right?

I don't do prayers, but if you all could maybe spare me some positive thoughts, that would be a nice thing, and I'd be very grateful.

Strap yourselves in. It's going to be a bumpy week.


  1. Big transition! Congratulations on the house sale, and blessings for your week.

  2. Woohoo to life transitions! You're going to cone out better for it in the long run, dear. Hugs to you and PD.

  3. For years I heard that "May you live in interesting times" was a Chinese curse. Then I mentioned that to a Chinese friend who said, "Who the hell told you that?"
    I know things to come are going to be interesting for you, but I hope they'll be interesting in a good way--or at least not overwhelming.

  4. You'll succeed. Because that's what you do. I have no doubt at all.

  5. You're not leaving your life, you're starting a new chapter in your life. A better one.

  6. I've heard that moving and divorce are in the top five most stressful events. Oy. Positive thoughts sent, and I'm crossing all the things that the house sale goes through.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
