Moving On?… C’est La Vie

my back is aching and my head hurts when i think too deeply so I am just going with it. In 1 week I will be on a plane to Marseille. My sister will pick me up at the airport and whisk me off to her little piece of paradise in Saignon

Right now, I have to somehow survive the packing and dumping. I think my brain actually skipped over this whole process when i put this plan in gear. It takes a lot of blood, sweat and fear to work through this part. Ugh. I hate it! I have stretched out the fun part as long as I could. Longingly staring at my lovely living room. (This means I have to squint hard to ignore the cluttered shelves and surfaces so I can focus on the light and height of the room.)

Am i excited? Sure …I think so. I’m actually blocking out a ton of dread.  I love this city of T.O.  it’s become home to me and I will be leaving behind neighbours, friends and a beloved daughter and granddaughter…and Gert the Golden Doodle. The city is amazing and diverse and of course the food options are endless.

Hmmm. I am really not sure what is around the next corner. I only know I am trying to embrace the adventure–or at least WILL TRY to embrace it when I can get through the sorting, keeping and dumping of the miscellaneous mess that has been my life so far.

More TK of course!

Terri James Harker lives in her hometown of Vancouver, Canada. Back to first person : I'm a Mom of 3 girls. Grandma of 2 girls and 4 boys. My background is in Sales& Marketing Account Management with 2 multinational publishers for 20 years. While other kids were learning to dance, swim, ski and play the violin, I was baking and sewing. For years I thought that I was TALENTLESS-- but I eventually realized I was one of the few people who actually used my skills ( dare I say talents?) Feeding the people I love and care about is a big part of what makes me happy. Creating beautiful ( unique?) things, even if held together by duct tape and safety pins makes me happy.
