I have to say that in many ways moving sucks.  I have too much stuff but it is getting to the point that I don’t have time to think and weed through it.  I’m just throwing things in boxes and deciding to deal with it in San Antonio.  Which means it will stay in the box for about 3 to 4 months until I have time to go through it.  I am looking forward to the new start though.  So many people are sad to see me go but excited for me at the same time.  The nice thing about the blogging world is that I’m still around for you guys – mostly.  Not sure how things are going to be for the next few days.  The big move is tomorrow and I won’t have internet service until Monday sometime.  I will probably check up on stuff via my iPhone, but probably not post anything except on Facebook.  If you want to add me as a friend on facebook, email me at and I’ll give you the link to my page. 

I have a lot of emotions about moving and such, but haven’t really had time to contemplate them with all the packing, being sick, more packing, and such.  I met with a group of friends from church on Wednesday night and they had such nice things to say about me.  I am really going to miss having those people in my life.  Sure, we can stay in touch to some degree on facebook, but it was really nice to sing with them, go to church, and just be around them.  I dread the aspect of having to make new friends in San Antonio because I’m not really all that social.  I will have to step out of my comfort zone again.

I’m a little sad to be leaving the house that I practically grew up in.  I’m nervous about starting a new job where I feel like I am going in blind.  I’m excited about starting a new life in a new city.  I’m looking forward to having so many things to do.  I’m scared about living in a big city where crime is more rampant.  I am happy to be able to work in the field that I’ve spent the last three years to earn a degree in.  I’m thankful for the job.  I’m sad to leave my friends.  Perhaps at some point these emotions will be more overwhelming, but at the moment everything is moving so fast and furious that I don’t really have much time to think about it.  We are loading up today and I’m not finished with all the packing.  It is never ending!!

In my experience, the last part of packing ALWAYS involves just throwing things in boxes, to be dealt with later. Sounds to me like you've had a mighty organized packing and moving process. It just FEELS like chaos. :)

Best of luck! And hope you quickly find at least one new favourite place and one new friend who makes you smile.

You do what has to be done. Not a time to contemplate, a time to act. Things will settle, the spirit will settle too. You are awake, you are open minded, you are in command - of yerself and the things you do.
Of course there is fear, there are things unknown. You will explore and conquer the new land.
