I’ve always moved a lot. It seems that as long as I can remember, the longest we stayed in one area was about 2 years. I suppose it was the restless spirit that kept us on the move. The most traumatic of these moves was when we moved to Hawaii.
I was 5 or 6, and we got rid of absolutely everything we owned. We literally moved with just a couple of suitcases. Our condo was furnished, so it wasn’t as bad as it sounds. Anyway, I had this tiny fold-up table and itty bitty school chair that I just adored. My mom got rid of them, and I thought my heart would break. I mean, you can tell that 24 years later, I still have issues with it, right?
There was an opportunity about 6 or 8 months ago where it looked like I might re-locate to Canada. While it was more of a lark that was pursued than a really serious opportunity, I imagine that move would have been somewhat similar to the Hawaii move. I’m sure rather than garage sale-ing and donating everything, we probably would have put it in storage.
Now you’re prepared for your move, too!
