Tres Fatigue

For our SOCS prompt today we were to “open a book, a newspaper, or whatever is handy and close your eyes and point. Whatever word or picture your finger lands on, make that the basis of your SoCS/JusJoJan post.” I have a book of short writings on self-care. The one for January 22 is ‘Listen to Fatigue.’

I mentioned in my past post that I’m in the process of moving to another house. ‘We are downsizing,’ she said hopefully. In reality, I think we are taking everything with us to a smaller house. Packing up is tiring. One member of this couple has a very hard time letting go of stuff and it’s not me. Oh well, if I am being honest, I would say I have a hard time letting go of some of the stuff. As a result we are taking a lot of stuff to our new place. Today we made an extra trip to the desert to drop off some of it. We made the round trip in one day and I am pooped. On the positive side, it was good getting out of the house and seeing the sky, clouds, hills, and mountains. I have been spending most of my time indoors and have missed out on seeing nature. The beauty of nature always restores me. That and getting some sleep. Good night.

      And this is the first move we have made in 30 years. You accumulate a lot in 30 years. I think we have most of it packed. I am living with packing boxes all over the house. We took that 17 mile drive several years ago. It is so beautiful. I am looking forward to the natural beauty out in the desert. Just have to make sure I get enough rest during all this. Thank you, JoAnna.

    I hope the move goes smoothly. Moving is one of the greatest stressors in life. You’re lucky that you can move into your new home over multiple days instead of just ‘moving day’ but it is still very exhausting. Your new home sounds lovely and in due time you’ll be all settled in. Take time each day to enjoy the beauty of nature. Be well! We look forward to seeing you in your new home when we all can get back to a more normal life. In the meantime may you enjoy this new journey in the best of health with much happiness! Love, Cynthia

      Well moving day is going to be the big one. We took some stuff down ahead of time because one of us was worried they would get damaged with the movers. Thank you for your lovely wishes and It is good to think about us all getting together again in the future. xo

    Moving is so much work! And downsizing can be so emotional. Put it together and you’re tired and emotional…not a good combination! I hope it all goes well for you and your other person in the couple. 🙂 We keep saying we need to get rid of stuff but so far that’s all that’s happening.

      It is tiring and I wish we could let go of a lot more. I tell my self I can still work on getting rid of stuff gradually when we get into our new place. Then we have the work of unpacking our stuff and putting it away in our new place. One step at a time. Thank you, Dawn.
