The boxes are packed and the house is practically empty. The movers come in a few days. Just the bare essential will go to our little apartment a couple of miles away. We have a few more months before the big move but I think this one will be the hardest for me. Saying goodbye to Stillmeadow Drive is bitter sweet but I know I’m ready now. As much as I love that house, the truth is, we never fully settled into it and made it our own.
I find myself being more of an introvert than usual these past couple of weeks. I need more sleep and just want to spend time alone in a quiet space. I’m not sad, just preparing myself for the change. I’ve talked before about how hard change is for me. For some reason I just need to feel prepared and to have a plan. The next few months are going to be busy wrapping things up at work and at the studio. I don’t know how to plan for the unknown.
Miss Keva is also a little out of sorts and in need of extra love and attention. I wish there was more I could do to reassure her that everything will be okay. We just need to keep her busy and keep her close.
I’ve been thinking about all the wonderful friends we have made here. It is too overwhelming to think about saying goodbye so I probably won’t. I know we will stay connected to many of them and, through the magic of social media, we will be able to easily stay in touch.
I am eagerly awaiting our next adventure and excited about what 2017 will bring. Spoiler alert – there is a cute little yellow house in our future!
