I had not realized how long it had been since I posted on here until my boyfriend asked me last night if I had posted anything on my blog recently. There have been so many changes going on in my life over the last couple of months I don't know where exactly to start...
I will start with the most significant change. Jim and I have decided to co-habitat or as he refers it as "shacking up". I have been in the process of clearing out my apartment and deciding what I want or need to take with me and what I can dispose of. It is absolutely amazing how much stuff can be crammed into closets and under beds when you are living somewhere for any length of time! Goodwill is going to love me over the next month. I have decided that most of the furniture can be either sold or donated. My late husband and I purchased most of the items in the apartment together and I really want to start "fresh" with Jim. I don't want to have constant reminders of the past while I am working on starting a new life with such a wonderful man. While I am busy working on my apartment we are also busy getting Jim's house organized so we can combine households. I never thought about how time consuming combining two lives can be. :) However, I am loving each and every moment we spend doing this because we are doing it together. In case you haven't figured it out, I am madly, deeply in love with this man!!!!!
One of the side effects of living in Millersville now is I am not watching any television. Jim does not own a tv and doesn't have cable. As of now, I am not really missing watching it (except for watching the Ravens games). It is interesting to see what other things a person can do when there is no television to take up hours of time at a clip. I have read more books recently than I have in years (and I have always been an avid reader). I am also pulling out my crafting supplies and getting back into the activities that I have always loved. Eventually, I would like to go back to school but I want to get settled in here first. I also want to start volunteering somewhere to help those less fortunate than myself.
As things settle down, I will keep you posted on what is occurring in my life.
