What does one take when one is evacuating???
Personnel papers and keepsakes--mostly--
and clothes are nice too!!!
and I did take those-
I also took my artificial Christmas tree--
2 small boxes of my good glass stuff--
2 boxes of picture frame mats,
and my sewing machine--
Why you ask--
you see --I had thought I could go Back--
I had reapplied to move back into the Jefferson Village apts--
where I lived before moving to Fl--
and they had called with an apt for me for Nov 1st--
so these were items that I did not want to ship back to NY--
so we had planned to leave them up there--
you can't go back---
I had some reasons for wanting to go back--
1. I missed my yarn shop--and taking lessons there and just going there to sit and knit--
2. my doctors office was just one block away--
3. I could walk over town--less than 4 blocks away anytime I wanted
4. eye doctor is only 3 blocks away--
5. a 5 minute ride on a van to get to Walmart and 5 minute ride home--
6. even though there is not a fabric shop in Watkins anymore--there is some nice ones about half hour drive away and I have friends who shop at them and still quilt--
you can't go back--
My daughter and I visited the Jefferson our first day in NY on Tuesday--
the apt that I was told that would be next to my old one--was not going to be available--after all!
but a corner unit was --the corner units are cold--and the view was not good at all--
soooo--that did not go over well--
and there was a couple other things that left me unsettled that day--
I got to be with Anne--we visited her daughter's shop first--then walked to the yarn shop and we sat down to visit in there--and guess what--I had to leave-they got in a new line of soap--smelly stuff!!
so we went out to sit on a bench on the street--we had a lovely visit--but then I remembered why I hated the streets--way way too many semi trucks go through that town (2-lane streets) and the diesel smell was getting to me--
then we went to a new little cafe for lunch and we had a lovely tuna sandwich and in walked my nurse that gave me my B-12 injections for years and I told her I was moving back and guess what she told me--???--we are closing the office Sept 29th----ouch--
by this time I really was believing that--
You can't go back!!!
and it keep going this way--
so that by Thursday morning when I was suppose to go sign some paper work--
I knew that I could not move back--so did not take the apartment-
and my Christmas tree and all the rest of the stuff came right back to Florida with me!!!
and that is my story and I am sticking to it!!!
So as you can see I had alot of adventures and lots of stress really on this trip--
especially trying to explain to the DD why I had changed my mind--
that was not an easy thing to do!!
So I did get my sewing corner here all cleaned up and the machine set back up--
and today I did do some sewing--
sorry for another long post--but--
wanted you to know--that you can't go back--sometimes--
maybe in the spring or summer-------------------------------!!!!!
ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI
