Goodbye, Georgia!

We're moving for good on Friday from Georgia to Maine! I've been throwing things away, cleaning out closets, packing what we weren't using, giving things to Goodwill and neighbors and church members all winter and spring. It was nice to take my time to sort through 35 years worth of things and decide what I really want to keep.

Anyway, my son is moving up there with me. (He isn't married and has decided he wants to be up there with the rest of the family.) He picked up the u-haul today and we've been busy doing the last minute things like laundry, throwing out food items, cleaning out the fridge, giving the bathroom one last clean, one or two last dump runs, etc. He just came back from some last minute errands and brought back Zaxby's, so I decided to take a break and play on the computer and eat something.

We're leaving on Friday after the morning commuters are gone and plan on stopping for the night in Greensboro, NC. We'll be going slow and I'm driving behind the truck and U-haul so that I can warn him if something looks wacky. It's going to drive me crazy driving at the speed limit. I'm not very patient and usually force myself to drive exactly 9 miles over the limit. Yes, I confess that I have a slight tendency to speed. I also seriously hate looking at the rear end of a truck, so following the U-haul is going to be a trial for me.

Wish us luck! It's off to a new phase in both our lives.

Good Luck on your move to Maine! It sounds like you have it well thought out. I know you visited there every sunmmer. Too bad you can't keep the place in Georgia and split the time between the two places when the weather gets too hot in Georgia and too cold in Maine. Safe travels.

Hooray for you, timeforbed! I wish you great good luck in your huge move! Im so impressed by the big change youre making. Good for you for courageously starting a new chapter in your life.

Confession: when I made my big move (a mere 500 miles, nothing to you), I was chicken to drive it alone. I managed to bury my husband, sell a house, buy a condo, arrange movers....but the thought of driving alone terrified me. Thankfully DD and her (then) husband came to my rescue.

Youll be fine on the drive. I bestow on you my mantra: I only have to do this once.

I admire you. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

Maine is a beautiful state. I am sure you will enjoy being closer to family, and how great that your son is relocating with you. Good luck with everything!

Congratulations on this new chapter in your life! I loved to visit Maine in the summer with all the beautiful flowers. May you have safe travels ( and safe speed) as you are driving! Can't wait to hear more about it when you are settled!

I am not the one moving, but I am helping my son and his family move back to our town this week and I am exhausted! I don't envy you the work involved, but I do wish you the best in your new home. Praying for safe travels!

Hello, Maine!

Wishing you a smooth and safe journey as you head north! Oh, and patience, too, as driving the speed limit behind a big truck over many miles wouldn't be easy for me, either.

But how wonderful it will feel once you are settled in your new home, and close to family, too! Please send some of that refreshing Maine weather to SoCal....we need it here!!

I love Maine. New England is beautiful year round, yes, even in winter. I just love a snowstorm. If you have warm clothes and boots, the outdoors in winter can be a real wonderland. I think people who live in warm climates year round just do not understand how lovely a change of seasons can be.
