It’s just amazing how things happen… My boss pulled me into her office to discuss my performance, I was doing good but she could tell that I really wasn’t happy and I wanted to be back home in Oregon. She told me that she could tell that my soul was dying by the lack of sparkle in my eyes… WOW! After some discussion I put in my notice and I cried the whole way home, I was so scared!! I was scared at the loss of the “security” a job holds. Over the weekend I started to feel better, I went to work Monday and that ended up being my last day.
Once I decided that I was moving home… the ball just started rolling!! Doors started opening and I was amazed at how things were lining up to make things possible!! 🙂 Currently I’m selling things to make some money, my son’s last day of school is on the 25th which is the last day of the quarter. It looks like we are leaving in 2 weeks!! Or less than two weeks!!
I’m purging and going through all of our things. I’m watching Tidying up with Marie Kondo and I’m listening to the Minimalist podcasts which is helping so much!! When I moved to Michigan two years ago I brought a 7ftx5ft box from U-Haul with me, I crammed it full! I’m looking now at all of the things that I brought with me and they don’t mean as much to me now, I no longer need them. My current plan is to pack my 21′ class C motor home with all of the things I’m going to bring with me and then put it in storage until the spring when driving across the country is a little more reasonable. Then I’m going to put me and my son and our cat into our car and drive across the country 🙂
