I like it here so far. I hope the feeling lasts. Happy and content to be here ...and I won't bore you by singing The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Music... Lol
I finally got my tv to work with a DVD player as the internet connection won't be in till tomorrow, but I just wanted that to watch something as I flatten my boxes. Believe it or not, I have dozens of boxes still around because if all the stuff I've accumulated over the years, stuff I really don't NEED. I think the less you have, the better off you are in any living situation. As long as you have the basics, you're fine.
I'll tell you a funny yet serious story before I leave to continue flattening the boxes.
On my way here, in Pennsylvania where I stayed a night on my way over, I was leaving the hotel the next morning and carrying many things. I had the pets to transport to the car, all their belongings needed, as well as my own things. I had a grey bag that held my clothes and some valuables-- my jewelry which I didn't pack in boxes of course. Meanwhile the movers would be coming in the next day to unload in the apartment.
Long story short:. I told myself to leave the grey bag by the hotel entrance, put the pets and other bags away, accommodate what I could in my crowded car, and then come bag for the grey bag. As I put all I had in the car, I took off, never looking back at the hotel entrance, where my grey bag sat.
It wasn't until I was 4 hours from Columbus that I realized my grey bag was missing..I could only think I might have left it outside a MacDonalds where I took the dog out to go, or outside the hotel entrance. I couldn't go back because it was late and I needed the keys to the apartment in Columbus. So I prayed all the way here that the bag would be turned into the hotel, and that's exactly what happened. I had to go all the way back there last Sat to get it, (I left the pets in my apt with a daughter) A gold bracelet left to me by my aunt who died last year was part of the valuables, and that was what I worried about the most.
Whew! What a nightmare that was.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
