Well, preparations for the move are well and truly underway.  We are in the process of packing things out of drawers, cupboards and closets.  So far 3 of the oriental chests are empty (and they are big), 3 bookcases have been packed and the majority of the kitchen things.  I got carried away and had to unpack a couple of coffee cups!!  Anyway, there are nearly 30 boxes packed and it feels good.  Looks messy, but feels good.

Tonight I decided to pull my photos (waiting to be scanned) from their 3-ring binders and box them up.  I found this one:

Heather & Steph going to NZ

This photo was taken in 1987 by a cabin attendant on the flight from Japan to New Zealand where we were moving.  At that time I only had two daughters, Heather and Stephanie.  We had a great time in NZ and our time there brought us wonderful memories.  Now, 22 years later (and 11 moves later) we are once again getting ready for a big change.  Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever settle down, or if I am destined to roam the world forever…

  1. I remember those girls! Please email me or call … my phone number has not changed … still the same as we had in 1993! I want to hear all about your move and new getting out of retirement plan. Adventures abound! Tally Ho!

  2. Maybe the world is your home and you’re just moving to another room!

    I’m with you on the packing Martie…although we’re just moving across town this time.

  3. Wow … I love Kate’s statement about your never settling down … the whole world being your home and you are simpling moving to another room. That is just so perfect! I have always understood Martie’s ‘restlessness’ for lack of a better word and always supported her moves. Kate’s statement is so beautiful. So which room are you moving to my friend>
