I’m going to be moving shortly, and I’m looking forward to a fresh start in my life! However, writing projects are sidelined for a few weeks as I settle into my new routines. I’m hopeful that a new, clean space and a stable routine will be nurturing to my creativity. My living situation has become a bit chaotic with all the animals my mom and I care for, but I will be taking with me only my son’s two mice and a kitten, so there is less work involved there. The new house is only ten years old, so it has less of the problems that my mom’s 60/70 year old house has–drafty windows, mildew/mold from condensation on the walls in winter, less pests.
I was a little reluctant to leave the space I’ve established for myself, but this move was motivated by my son’s need for a better education. Apparently, his current school rates 3rd to last in the state (which means less funding, which means it only can go downhill). He’s been frustrated and depressed by the bare-bones education he’s been receiving. I couldn’t let this continue for another year, so when the opportunity arose to move into a better school zone arose, I had to take it.
I’m excited for this new chapter in my life!
