Hello My Faithful Fans

Please bear with me. I am still trying to get a computer setup at the apartment. The roadblock is deciding what to get. More than likely no pictures until then and not many other updates.

I made the 300 mile drive home over the weekend. It takes me about 4 hours and is a pretty straight shot. That reminds me...I better check the gas tank!

The time at home was too short. So much to do in so few hours. I did manage to pack up my sewing room, well a portion of it, and carry it home with me. It took me an hour to unload everything. I have to climb a flight of stairs and some of the things were very heavy. I even had to lay down for a few minutes (no chairs yet) to catch my breath.

I was good and setup and put away everything I brought. I pulled out fabric for my next quilt and washed it along with other laundry last night. I will have to setup the ironing board and iron and see how I like them. Both new. Tonight I will more than likely just sew on my Spring Breeze to get that top done.

So here is an interesting fact about me. I have never lived alone. Last night was my first night alone in the apartment. I locked my bedroom door. I fell fast asleep and slept hard. I will be fine. I took an upstairs apartment on purpose. I think it is safer for me. My mother asked me if I am lonely. So far, no. I think I will enjoy the peace and quiet. I will be talking with lots of folks and try to catch up on past friendships. In other words, I plan to make the most of my time.

sounds like it'll be heavenly once everything is set up and you settle into a rhymn with this new arrangement...

It sounds like you are well on your way to a good routine. Do you listen to audiobooks during your drive? I used to do a lot of commuting and that's where I developed my love of audiobooks.

Hmm... it has been years since I have been alone too. I wonder how long it would take to get used to it. Do you get to control the TV and the food???

Living alone is pretty great! I haven't lived with anyone in like 8 years. I will have a VERY hard time ever living with anyone!!

You are a brave soul!
I have never lived alone either and am a big chicken, so I am totally amazed when someone can land in a new city, set up a home and build a life!

ha ha, I love your priorities! You've made sure of your sewing stuff, when you still don't have any chairs. My kind of woman. I lived alone for six years and most of the time I really liked it. I still enjoy the peace and quiet when I have the house to myself even now. Hope you settle in ok an find it a haven.
