Save the Last Dance for Me

Well, guys, this is it. I move out of here into my new abode tomorrow night and it's time to say goodbye to this old house.

As much as I hated it, I'm really going to miss it. It's like an old friend or a pair of worn out shoes whichever way you want to look at it, but it's been my home for the last 12 years and it's kinda sad leaving it.

My last two kitties I'll ever own are buried underneath the bush out back. I hope the new owners tread carefully around it because they were really special to me. I can't take them with me but everytime I ride by, I can glance at the bush in the back and remember just how special they really were.

I'll miss the daily walks around the chicken houses the most, I think. It was the time when I did a lot of reflecting. The dogs would be at my side and oh the memories. When my twin soul died, I did a lot of walking around those chicken houses, talking to him, pleading for him to tell me it was some sick joke and he was really alive.

I'll not forget the rows and rows of corn that were planted in the summer and what a backdrop that was. And the birds flying above...

And in the fall when they cut down the corn, you could see the deer grazing just beyond the field in front of the woods.

Simply beautiful.

Oh, I could go on and on, but I'm running out of time and there's still so much to do.

We're down to the big stuff. I'm really exhausted. We've been hauling truckloads over there for days it seems. Boxes are piled to the ceiling almost and it's going to be awhile until we finally get it the way we like it.

And it's freaking cold there. The water isn't but a few yards away and the wind blows across it with such force you'd think it was a hurricane. Or so I thought today while lugging boxes in...awfully cold.

It's nice, though. Probably the nicest place I've ever lived in. I can't wait until the day when everything is unpacked and I can have a full day of rest.

They take my computer down tomorrow evening so I guess you won't be hearing from me until I get it back up and running and when that happens, I'll be sure to let you know all about it and I'll have pictures, too.

So goodbye old house....and I'll be talking to you all in a few days...Calgon....

  1. Dorothy - good luck with the move and getting settled. We're finally recovering from ours, although we still have so much to do since we also changed states. LOL!

    You'll bring out those memories from time to time and they'll warm your heart. But enjoy making new memories, too.

    Hugs!

  2. Good luck with your move. I've been with Pat close to a year now and still don't have everything put away. And of course there is the storage unit.....

    The memories will always be there, warm and fuzzy. But as Kathy says, don't forget that you will also be making new ones, too.
