It hit us like a lead balloon this week. We have 118 days before C is finished with residency [see the personal note in this post]. It is time to officially put the house up for sale. Movers are coming to supply estimates for our great trek across the country. [Why do I feel like a covered wagon should be involved?]
I've been in denial and will continue to be during this process. It's easier that way.
You cannot believe how much "stuff" I have to purge and pack. I look around each day and want to crawl into a hole.
Here we are again at the crossroads of uncertainty and adventure.
So, where is my moment this week? It came when C and I dropped the kids off at skate board camp and then wandered Newport, RI, for several hours. I took in the sites as if they were the last time I'd ever seen them. Perhaps they are. I thought about how much I appreciated living here for almost 7 years. The ocean, the history, the crazy rotaries are all things I will miss about New England. Wicked awful!
If you were moving away tomorrow, what would you miss?
OM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment. Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, actively looking for and sharing these moments will promote balance in our lives.
Share in the blog comments here, on your own blog (and link back below) or on my Facebook fan page. If you are on Twitter, use hash tag - #omMeetup so we can converse if we'd like. We'd love to hear your moment this week!
