I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

Movin' Out

Looks like the move is happening tomorrow. Yikes. I better get my stuff in order and ready to move by the time the truck arrives. Thankfully, it's just my furniture and clothing. Everything else is already waiting for me to unpack at my uncle's house.

This is going to be a big change...leaving the city to live in the country again. I'll be trading crazy traffic for stray animals. Life is always changing for me. I don't have a clue how I'm going to make it, since I'm not currently getting an income, but I suppose somehow it will work out.

No word from the doc yet. My aunt thinks no news is good news. I hope she's right, but I think I'm going to show up on his doorstep tomorrow afternoon if he doesn't call in the morning. He said the results would only take a week, and it has been a week and a half now. It's hard being left hanging when it's something as important as this. Hopefully I'll know something tomorrow.

My back has improved, thank goodness, so I managed to get a couple of things accomplished today. I'm still in a lot of pain and on meds as needed, but it's gradually becoming tolerable. I expect to be able to resume life as usual by turkey day. As always, I'll be bouncing around from house to house eating my weight in dressing and chocolate pie. It's just one day, though...not gonna give myself a hard time about it. My healthy lifestyle (as opposed to using the word "diet") will resume this weekend. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally be able to remove "lose weight" from my new years resolutions. As long as I stay on track in December, I'll be able to replace my number one resolution with something new for the first time in years.

Back to packing now. Oh, I don't have internet where I'm moving, so I may not be online every day...just depends on whether or not there is free wifi within 10 miles of me...which is unlikely.

Either way, I'll be back soon.
