moving is more than moving

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. Herm Albright (1876 - 1944)

For those of ya who wanted to see the mommanator on the cycle! I just ride with hubby, haven't learned to drive one yet! Maybe in my next life!
On to moving-ya think when you get your stuff moved and somewhat sorted out, you are done with the move! OOOO NOOOO!
Next ya have to change your address on EVERYTHING.
you have to get new drivers' licences,
get new tags for the car, and new insurance.
you need new bank accounts and get all your direct deposits going to the new bank,
you need to go thru the process of getting your nursing license updated and changed
ALL of these wonderful things come with a price, of course, and you on a limited income!
You have to get acclimated to the new weather,
need new doctors, o and change the health insurances,
you meet loads of new people, mostly all you like,
you have to remember new names, new addresses
you have to remember you are now living in a community that have allot of grey haired people.
You have to get new vet and someone to groom the dog
AHA and now you have to pick up puppy dodo
whenever you take him for a walk.
You make lists and lists so you don't forget one item!
and even find yourself asking did I do that?
you even have to contact your last state employee so they
don't take NJ state taxes out any longer! guess I will have to find a new tax man too!
What bliss it is, BUT I could do away with some of these things!
I could go on forever, but guess you get the idea!

ugh. getting set up takes so much effort! feels like it takes forever and then after you've been there (wherever "there" is) for about a year, you've totally forgotten all the headache of getting settled.

You guys don't even know about the time she drove across country in a VW with her ... err, oh wait, I have been sworn to secrecy on that one.

Never mind!
