I begged off of Halloween revelry in Aspen tonight, because I'm moving tomorrow and haven't really packed... anything. So... I'm packing, right? I'm filling boxes with all my worldly belongings, getting rid of things I don't need or use, and otherwise preparing myself for this. Right?
Last time I moved (at the end of June), I was packing at the last minute, in a hurry, and so everything got packed. Everything got thrown in a box and brought to my apartment or put in storage. EVERYTHING. So there's tons of crap in there that needs to be culled. It's a time in my life where I need to purge, move on, and start fresh. And yet, am I doing that right now?
But I am looking forward to getting into my new place. The place I'm in now is furnished, so I will be reunited with my furniture tomorrow, and the place will feel more like my own. Also, it's a one bedroom and I won't have to worry about ending up with an unsavory roommate like I had over the summer (that is another story for another post). So it'll feel more real and permanent instead of just an employee housing unit. And it has lots of good windows for making kitty cats very very happy. :)
On another note... I went the other day to be trained to be a poll watcher on Election Day. All that talk about protecting the right to vote, helping people, etc stirred up a little teensy bit of interest in returning to the practice of law. Also stirring up that same thought? My empty bank account. ;)
So that's what is up with me. Tomorrow I will be in (another) new spot, starting a new chapter in my life. Doors are closing, so I just have to look for the opening windows...
