CYNTHIA’S BIG MOVE
It’s happening..it’s happening. I’m in the final stages of the Big Move! It hasn’t felt “real” until last week when my brother Glenn and his wife Sharon showed up for the final push of packing. They rolled in with their RV from Florida, swooping in to help me finish up some of the boxes before the movers showed up this week to take a shipment into storage. Their timing was incredible! I had a week to go before the movers showed up and I was still knee-deep in boxes and bubble wrap before they came. I really fell like the stars are aligning in my favor now – a far cry from how things were going over the past few years.
My sister-in-law Sharon is great because she can make practical decisions on what to keep and what to toss. It’s kind of crazy how many wine glasses I’ve accumulated over the years – that’s for sure. But I guess that’s what happens when you live in the same house your entire life. The packing process has taken a lot longer than I expected because we’re packing for my own personal “RV” –the one I will retire in – and for long-term storage. While I have a ways to go before I end up trailing Sharon and Glenn across the country in my own RV, it definitely feels like I’m moving into the next phase of my life. I’m just amazed at how fast a clip things are going!
I can tell Glenn is floored by how much I’ve accomplished in the past few months. He saw me back in January before I started the treatments with Dr. Lori when my Bunnuku business was in the conceptual stage. When I showed him my “before pictures the other day, he told me I looked a decade younger now. Even though I knew that, it means so much more coming from one of my older brothers. It’s so great to have him here for all of the encouragement! It makes me realize just how much I miss him and how far I’ve really come!
