Tomorrow morning I will go to my new apartment complex and commit myself to trying it out for one year. I don’t think I’ll have any problems with the trial period, because I can always take a trip somewhere and then come back. What I can’t do is workamp for 2 or 3 months at a time rent free.
Now that I’m so close to moving I am scared to death and nearly sick with worry, not about the decision to move, but whether I will ever be able to accomplish transferring everything from the RV. There is no room to park the RV at the apartment so that is out. I’m also worried about storage, that I won’t have enough of it. The kitchen will be more than adequate but not sure about the rest. I’d like to sit down and cry, but then my eyes would get all red and it wouldn’t accomplish a thing anyway.
Today while at Jeannie’s house I helped Autumn draw a hopscotch out in the driveway and then showed her how the game is played. Of course she beat me 8 times, which says a lot about my stamina. Actually I quit after 2 games. Jeanne is off work today because of the holiday in California honoring Cesar Chavez. I remember how he led the strikes and boycotts back in the 70’s (if my memory is correct) to try to get better working conditions for the migrant farm workers. We boycotted lettuce from California and the workers were finally given minimum standards of working conditions
Depending on how much I accomplish tomorrow I might not post until the day after. To be truthful, right now this minute, if I had it to do over again I’d still be living in North Carolina. Of course no one can “do it all over again”, so we have to make the best of what we have and learn the lessons from it. There are always lessons. I’m not saying I would trade anything for the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met, but I’m not liking the stress I’m under right now. I recently realized I don’t do anything except under stress!
