Beep Beep Boop …

Well good morning guys and dolls…

Before I forget: This is a link to a blog I had started before. It has two whole posts on it, whoop whoop!

So I guess I have done better with this blog, but I have petered out of late.

Been busy, but also “speechless.”

I don’t know why. There is plenty going on that I could post about. It is almost like too much to post.

For one, as you know, I am moving to Jacksonville, Florida; well, the general area.

For another: The previous has helped me get rid of my depression, at least temporarily, and believe it or not I am not too anxious, either.

MAN AM I EXCITED and yes I am yelling! I found a great apartment and possibly a great church! Whoo hoo!

Lots to do between now and then; I have to be out of my current apartment in Maine by October 1st.


That is not too bad though. It is a small apartment, and I had downsized quite a bit when I moved from a 2 bedroom 4 years ago.

Still. Every part of my body just wants to sit around and play on the computer – and then nap from the exertion.

Instead, I have people coming so they can take what they need. There is a FB page for Maine called “Pay it forward,” and I’m paying it forward by giving away my furniture and many of my trinkets; I am taking just what fits in my car to Florida. It costs too much to transport the rest.

So that thought motivates me as well as the move-out date. Helping others is fun! And having new furniture will be nice. My stepmom said she’d help with that expense.

Whoo hoo!

Can’t think of what else I have not told you. Maybe I will remember later. Anyway, have a great day and FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!

Yes I’m yelling again.

OH! I remembered something I forgot to tell you about.


For one thing, when I got down to Jacksonville to scout out an apartment, church, etc., I stayed with a lady, and wound up w/ a severe case of bites from probably bed bugs!

Now I hate bugs of any kind! (see afore mentioned blog, and post about fruit flies. I nearly had to be hospitalized, I freaked out so badly!) Another time, not that long ago, I thought I’d been getting bitten by bed bugs. I freaked! my gracious landlord fumigated my place at their expense to humor me.

They found one bedbug. One!

Anyway, there are also many bugs in Florida that we don’t have here, and I have heard it said that the ones we have in common are SUPERSIZED (would you like fries with that?) (NO.)

So I met several roaches (also referencing the place where I was initially staying).

Hmm. Didn’t care for them much, but they were harmless. Sooooo…

I survived my first round.

    Yes! Those huge roaches are called palmetto bugs I believe. You see them all up and down the East coast I believe. Yuck! But I’m sure you’ll get used to it and, if not, maybe it’ll be good for you; you’ll be able to live in a place that’s heavenly but keep longing for Heaven. xoxoxo

    Bedbugs are like little harbingers of Hell….tiny morsels of a horrible warning. With all my travels, I’ve been fortunate to only encounter them ONCE. I’m glad you fumigated and only found one – that likely means you headed off your own personal nightmare….Anyway – good luck on the move! I hope you only break the gifts that were too ugly to display, haha

      Thanks Katie! the “one” was from a previous visit. This visit (at the lady’s house) they were voracious! it does not appear that they followed me home. The good news is that in the new apartment pest control is included! Hallllllelujah!
