Mastodon moving —


In early July I spent a week Bay Area with my sister K, her husband M, their 2-year-old daughter ER. (Henry is living there too, working as ER’s nanny) It was a lovely visit, and we discussed the plan we made when Henry moved up there early this year. The plan was that they’d find a bigger house to rent and I’d move in with them, because I really can’t live alone anymore. Too scary with my health the way it is; also lonely because I don’t have the energy to get out and do things with other people very often. But the “bigger house” plan hasn’t happened yet for various reasons, so they’re clearing out a room for me to live in and I’ll be moving up there in mid-August.

So I’m moving again! I’m really excited about living with my family, getting to spend time with Henry and ER before I get any sicker, having people around for company and support. And especially feeling useful again — I think I will really be able to make everyone’s life a little smoother by helping out in the little ways that I can.

It’s hard to leave my San Diego family, and it’s absolutely crushing to leave Jeff-the-therapist. Argh. He’s been helping me for almost four and half years, and now I’ll need to find someone new. It’s daunting and scary.

I’ve got a moving company hired and am packing the good stuff and giving unwanted stuff away. I have four doctor appointments and two car appointments this week.

I’ll try to record a new chapter of something soon! :)

    I have just started listening to books on LibriVox on my daily commute and at work. You gave your web address and I decided to check you out. First let me say thanks for the readings and that I was sorry to learn of your illness and I hope you continue to do well and can keep reading the books. Take care! Carol

    Couldn’t ask for a better situation. Breaking ties with San Diego and all it represents is sad, but this just sounds so healthy, nurturing and downright good! What a blessing!

    Moving is scary… but it sounds like it’ll be a really good thing overall! (Does Jeff do Skype?)

    Drop us a line when you have time and energy – Peter and I live here on the Peninsula, and we’d love to meet you in person!
