Cleopatra... as in Queen of Denial (the Nile.)
Yes we are moving this summer. Yes my husband is retiring this summer. No, we have no fixed plan yet. Yikes!
Every time I start to worry about all of this, I just retreat to my haven--my sewing room--and work on something. It has absolutely become my place of refuge, and I'm practically living in there.
It all got more real this week. On Tuesday we had our appointment with Transportation--which in military life means when you go to schedule your move. Since my husband is retiring, and no longer "important" we didn't have as many choices. We could either do it the first two weeks of June (way too soon) or the last 2 weeks of July. My husband is done working on the 5th of July, so our first plan was to pack up the end of June and leave the area in early July. Now, though, we will keep the house a month longer and pack up the end of July. The movers are actually scheduled to come on my birthday--what a great present! (sarcasm) Actually, this new plan takes some pressure off and allows me to procrastinate longer. Did you know that if you wait until the last minute, it only takes a minute? Haha. Yeah, sure.
As of right now, we are going to put most of our stuff into "Non Temporary Storage" which the Army will do for a year. That will give us time to figure things out, buy a house, and get settled. Finally. I hope. The biggest question is just how much of my stash can I get away with keeping out of storage? In case we "camp out" for a bit in an apartment, I plan to have my Bernina, etc. I have a few kits and I'll take my precuts, and maybe I can kit up a few major projects that I would like to work on.
So what have I been doing in my quilting room while avoiding life? I'm trying to get some of my major projects finished. Yesterday I spent the entire day making the 220 flying geese that I need for Talkin Turkey. Today I have had other things to do, but hopefully I can get back in there and start assembling the rows.
Have a great day!
