Breathing lessons

 
How many times I've thought about updating this blog and then I put it off, thinking, "as soon as life settles down."  But, really.  Does life ever settle down?  (Does my Springer Spaniel EVER  "settle down?")  And how boring would that be?

We're in the process of moving.  We put our house on the market one day in September and we had a buyer the next morning.  For weeks, we scrambled about looking for a place, and last week we threw up our hands and signed a lease on an apartment. 

So, as you can imagine, I've been up to my ears in moving boxes, packing tape, and lists, with a black magic marker stuck in my bra (TMI?) trying to organize this move from 3,600 square feet to . . . well, first a small apartment and eventually to a smaller house.  The majority of our stuff is going into storage.  I'm on a first name basis with the attendant at our local Goodwill drop-off.  I am de-crapping in a BIG way!

Meanwhile, I keep telling myself to just breathe.  It's my favorite time of year.  The fall foliage is gorgeous, the days crisp and cool.  A beautiful season outdoors and a new season for Dan and I.  So much to write about. 

I'll keep you posted.
