  1. Coni,
    I was just catching up on 7-8 days of your posts. I have to tell you: that I think you are absolutely amazing! That you are working your way through packing and all, with everything else you have going on. I think I would have ended up in the Funny Farm weeks ago! {Thunderous Applause to you}
    Loved how you "found" your mother's sampler and etc.!
    Remember: inhale. exhale. inhale. exhale. continue.
    You'll get through this!

  2. You are not only brave but lucky! Those of us who are rapid cyclers understand your joy!!!

    Too funny

  4. I am totally stealing this, Coni.

  5. Your next cross-stitch piece perhaps? :-)


  6. Well, despite all the turmoil you've been through, you haven't packed your sense of humor..............that's a good thing.

  7. Guffaw !!! That you recognize it at all is to your credit.
    most of us remain oblivious, not understanding why we get
    stares of confusion (alarm?) Stay as stable as you are...
    you always land back in that state, bless you.

  8. Actually, given all that you've got going on right now that's pretty darn good. I've been following your adventures in moving for the last several days and sending as much good karma/vibrations, prayers, whatever floats your spiritual boat as I could. I do have a couple of thoughts I'd like to share in hopes they'll help, or give you something to think about. (I kind of know whereof I speak because I moved 18 times in 20 years. And no, I'm not a hobo or gypsy. I'm military.) Downsizing is tough under the best of circumstances. When downsizing is forced upon you by circumstances beyond your control, tough doesn't begin to describe the undertaking. Cut yourself some slack, girlfriend. You've been in Chez Spinster quite some time now and have amassed quite the treasure trove. As you let your things go, imagine how much joy they'll bring to someone else, as they did to you. As you part with some books, think of how you're not getting rid of but passing on something of value. You're sending part of you out into the world--look at it that way. Hope it helps. And so far as putting off dealing with the heirlooms and past, to quote Scarlett O'Hara, "Tomorrow is another day." Keep up the good work.

  9. I love this so true and so funny.
