Ready to move

Well, I am mostly packed and ready to go. It's hard to live once you've packed. Even though I tried to keep stuff out that I thought I would need over the last week or so, I have had to reopen several boxes. Sadly/gladly, we have a showing of the house Friday, and so I will spend most of my energy moving the upstairs boxes down into my studio to get them out of the way. I am not very optimistic that anything fruitful will come of the showing, but you never know. My game plan is to head on down the road Monday. I am going to stay with my parents (mom and stepdad) for what could be a couple of months till I save up money for my own place. I have not lived with my parents since I was about 20. This could be challenging for all involved. I intend to live within a brief walk of downtown Portland Maine, and it is unlikely I will be able to afford a place of my own, and so might have to get a room mate. I have never had a room mate and so this will be a new experience. I also need to find a place/room mate that will allow a dog and cat. It's funny how many ads I have seen that say they have pets and so you must love dogs to live there, but, you can't bring your own. Eventually I'll find something.

Best wishes on your move. I know you're probably sick of hearing things like, "when a door closes, a new window opens," etc., etc., but I do know that it happens. Hope all the windows start flying open for you!

What an adventure you are on! Your world has spun around & spit you in a new direction - if it weren't so annoying - it would be exciting. Hope all the challenges just enrich your life.
