My Bags Are Packed

I spent most of the evening packing last night, and I’m finally done (apart from a new things that I’ll take on the plane with me.)  And I’m so relieved to be done.  After several months of feeling like I don’t have a lot of things, I realized that I have more than I thought.  And even more important than the things I have, I have a family that supports me unconditionally.  I already knew the last part, but it’s really nice to be reminded when I’m nervous about the future.  🙂

My aunts, who came to visit this week before I left, have decided to act as my personal movers.  How awesome is that?!  They’re going to make their way to Los Angeles next week with my things so I don’t have to ship it, carry it on the plane or leave it, and it’s a relief for a few reasons.

First, I love the idea of having family with me as I settle into my new surroundings on the west coast.  And secondly, it’s such a relief to skip all of the headaches associated with moving one’s belongings across the country.  And they’re coming in a truck which means I’ll be able to buy a couch and such without worrying about getting it home.  Awesome, right? =) So while I’m still tired, I’m also feeling less pressure and anxiety as I think about the changes that are happening.

I haven’t eaten as well as I could in the last two days so it’s time to find the groove that I’ve been in during the last couple of weeks.  Today, I will work on making healthier choices, and I’ll enjoy the time I have with Mom and the other people who matter to me here.  And I’ll relax and look forward to being back in Los Angeles.

And one last thing…the winner of the Keurig Platinum Edition Brewer is John who said “My wife and I get up at completely different  times so a keurig would be great because we waste a lot of coffee now because it gets cold. Plus they are freaking cool looking.

They are cool looking, aren’t they John?  I’ve sent a message to you via email so please respond by Friday at noon eastern time or another winner will be chosen.  Thanks so much to everyone who entered.  The folks are Keurig are fantastic so perhaps there will be another opportunity in the future!

I hope everyone is enjoying this Thursday!  What’s happening in your world? What’s for lunch?

    P.S. I love my Keurig. I’m taking it on vacation with us. Yep…making room in our tiny ass sedan just to pack that bad boy and enjoy every morning before I hit the beach. Couldn’t live without it!

    I’m so happy your aunts are bringing your stuff. It does make such a big difference to land someplace and feel that warmth and familiarity right away.
    Safe travels!

    I am so excited for you. I remember how nervous and excited I was when I moved to Texas (was there only three months) and then again when I moved to Seattle, away from everyone I knew. Have fun Kenlie!

    Wishing you all the best in LA. I lived there for 10 years and had great times and not-so-great times. Often I felt like I was on the outside looking in, no matter how thin or how fit I got. I finally moved away after most of my favorite friends/people had, but I’ll never regret having lived there. Some of my adventures from them are truly bizarre, surreal, and hilarious. Enjoy it for what it is!
