Monday 8/22/16

Today is my last Monday at my job in DC.  I love this job.  But I can't take it to Wisconsin with me.
We are still living in a sea of boxes.  This week the last of our food will be eaten.  I am excited and nervous.  So glad to be going home but there is so much that can go wrong in the next 10 days.

Since my stitching is packed along with everything else, I have just been reading.  I am up to book 55 this year.

Since I am moving home, I have had a lot more thoughts about mom.  Sure wish she could have stayed healthy until I got there.  So strange to think of her as gone.  Looking forward to spending time with my niece.  She has severe anxiety and I think we could benefit from some quality time together.
I am eating too much.  Again.  Not really binging but my portion sizes are too big.  Need to take a breath and calm down.

Peace and Love

Monday August 8, 2016

Haven't been motivated to do much of anything lately.  Our apartment is mostly packed up so I am living in a sea of boxes.  It has been 98 degrees out.  So very humid out.  I can barely breathe when I am outside.  I have been reading so much this year.  But now that everything is packed that is all I have to do.  I am on my 49th book this year. 

My husband and I drove around upper Maryland and dipped into Pennsylvania to stop at Gettysburg.  We stopped at the Catoctin Zoo and State Park.  We also stopped at antique stores.  We passed through Cascade MD and saw Fort Ritchie.  It was built in WWI era.  But it is all rock and shaped like little castles.  Loved it.  It was so hot and humid, I was soaking wet most of the day.

We move back to Wisconsin on the 30th of this month.  We will be driving so we hope to be in WI by the evening of the 31st.  We will have the cats with us in the car so we want to go as far as we can each day to get them to their new home soon.  They will be so traumatized by this trip.  I just hope they don't get sick.
