Shortly after we began moving … and we are still moving 6 months later! I just can’t do anything fast! I have three paces: slow, slower, and still … or is it stop or done! I’m finding this much more difficult then I thought. Moving anything is confusing. Energy is still limited, but I’m blessed and significantly improved since 2010.
I couldn’t even think about doing this two years ago. I didn’t realize what a task moving would be. If I did have help I still wouldn’t know where anything was only adding to confusion. So it’s a process I will get through at my own pace…slower then a turtle’s pace and that’s very slow!
I was talking to my dear sister when I heard my husband calling out “Where are you at?”. I realize this a change, but how many places in a nearly empty home do you think I could be? This is a 900 square foot house? The furniture included a couple camps chairs and beds.
Now where could I even hide if I wanted to? In the empty closets? Under the bed where I wouldn’t fit anyway? Maybe the bathtub! I could try hiding under the kitchen table!
Ironic that even our verbal communication needs adjusted when making a move. Hubby is so use to shouting out to calling my name he didn’t realize what he said until I suggested that I couldn’t even be lost or hide if I wanted to.
There is a great advantage to living in a small home and appreciating the simple things in life. The garden is growing without effort, the recreation center with a pool a half mile away. Sure saves driving time and energy! My washer is still running when I return home from the grocery store! Now I finally have some time and a little energy to spare! I wish we had been able to make this change earlier, but that was impossible without treatment!
Now, my future goals are volunteering a couple hours a week and keep on writing. Just need to sell or rent the “Big House!” but still packing and moving. Spending excess energy in the “Big House” and conserving energy in our “Cozy Corner”!
Who wouldn’t take a “Cozy Corner” with more physical and mental energy then a “Big House” that wastes resources? I’m thinking big goals and big dreams in a small house! Independence is key to living life! Forget the help…I’ll do it myself (as always).
I’ve de-cluttered all the crap from my mind, and have room to roam! I won’t get lost!
I’m finding I will have more time, and TIME is all we have! No one knows when their time is up. I have never wasted time over the past 21 years, but I’ve been used. I’m a little slow. So I finally figured it out slowly, but I’m not used up!
