Change is good for us, right? I believe in change. I believe that it will keep me from being bored. I have always embraced change and welcomed it to my life. I grew up an Air Force Brat and moved around often from the day I was born. Three years in one place was a max for this young girl. I spent 6 years in Big Spring, Texas and almost died when I had to leave at the precious age of 16. Not good to stay in one place for so long that you don't want to go.
When Kirby and I first hooked up, I told him that I get bored easily and love change. There was never a problem. We changed our home every 6 months for the first 3 years. We would spend 6 months on the boat in Mexico and then go to California for 6, rent a new apartment and set up housekeeping again. Then the cycle would begin all over again. Even when in San Diego, we at least changed our home or our jobs.
With this current economy we haven't been able to manage much change in our lives. Same job and same home for over 5 years now. I wanted so much 2-3 years ago to move to a different home, get a new job - SOMETHING!! But, nothing has changed since we first moved here. Same job, same house. Not that it was bad - it was just THE SAME!
Finally, things are changing! Yea! We are moving! NOT FUN! We have stayed here too long. This moving process has become painful. Now I am beginning to understand how people can stay in the same job/same home for years and years and years. This is stressful! When you move and change your life often, it is a breeze - just get up and go. But now we have loads and loads of stuff. (Kirby says we have "Too much useless shit!" ) How do I decide what is important to keep. I can't keep it all - we are simplifying our lives! I believe in and want a simple life but I am attached to all this STUFF.
We are running out of time. Garage sale this coming Saturday and then that is it! Out of here! What doesn't fit on the RV goes.............
Ah, the Simple Life!! Wish me luck!
