How I Hate Moving, Let Me Count The Ways...

Okay, so it's not that I HATE moving. I'm actually very excited to be moving back down to the lower 48. I'm on pins and needles. I can't wait to get back to what I call 'civilization' because, quite frankly, I'm a big city girl. At least that's what some of these small town folk called me when trying to present ideas to them. Nope, not bitter, just hate small minded people.

I'm looking forward to actually being able to AFFORD something. I love Alaska, but I hate winters and the cost of living. I will always be thankful to the people up here who gave my husband a chance when we needed it. We actually did really well up here for a while. But the cost of living keeps increasing and our paychecks don't. So I can't help but look forward to getting back on our feet.

However, my 'To Do List' keeps growing by leaps and bounds. My anxiety over having to travel such a long distance, through Canada, with two cats and a trailer... well... that's increasing as well.

So needless to say, my sleep issues have kicked in to high gear. I'm going to be sort of out of it for the next month or so. Please don't think I'm deserting you, my lovely readers. I'm not. But if I don't post as regularly as I was, or I don't agree to book reviews right now, just know I have a lot on my plate.

Just wanted to share this. I don't want anyone to think I am dropping off the face of the planet again. Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Good luck with the moving. It's always a hassle to pick up and move, but it's a new start. Try looking at it that way.

Moving is never fun. Not sure how possessions multiply, but they do. Glad you're excited about the new opportunities though.

Thanks for the well wishes! Funny, I'm spending more time offline than on this week. Sorry, slow with the responses.

Good luck with the move, Mel. We'll still be here, so take all the time you need :)
