Bah, humbug!! I don’t like this time of year!! Everything geared to family. In an effort to banish the blues, I’ve kept very busy all weekend “getting my ducks in a row.” In my earlier blogs (TabTeardropTravels) I talked about “downsizing.” I’ve made progress but I won’t make the self-imposed deadline of December 31, 2011. I hope, and pray, to get the project done before another year passes!! I emptied several boxes yesterday, and a couple today.
Today I shifted boxes so I could get to some that have been packed since 2004. (Yes, 2004!! Before I left Lancaster, California.) I thought I’d move pictures and decorator items from one box to another. From an old box to a box that will be a donation to our Boutique (Thrift Shop) on the JAARS campus. Inadvertently, I opened a box with framed family pictures and I was overwhelmed with emotions, and memories. It was 2 o’clock and I cried out “Oh, God, I can’t stand the pain!!” I tucked the pictures back into the box and stacked it against the wall (again).
I fixed lunch and sat, eating, at the computer reading details about uploading pictures to this new-to-me blog. There will definitely be “a learning curve” because there are many differences between this format and the Google Blogspot format. Again I say “Bear with me while I learn the features.” ~~ Note: With time spent reading instructions, and experimenting with pictures, this blog took three hours. ~~
