Sleeping In 

It has been an incredibly busy week getting settle into my new place, and while I’m not completely settled yet, I don’t have any appointments tomorrow. I can just sleep in and enjoy my new and very comfortable mattress that was delivered yesterday. The only thing that I do need to do is walk over to the post office and pick up my keys to my p.o. box. When I paid for it, the keys that I was given didn’t work, so they had to rekey it. I seriously doubt I’ll have any mail, but you never know.

Every time I have ever moved into a new place, I forget how much there is to do. There is even more when you pack light and do it all yourself. I never realize how many unexpected expenses there are when moving to a new place. It didn’t help that I had a mishap on the way up and was delayed a day, which actually added the expense of two extra nights because even though I cancelled my reservation at the hotel I’d planned to stay at the first night, it was after the 24 hour deadline for cancellations. I’ll get reimbursed for most of my expenses, but I’m not sure when I will get that reimbursement.

Moving is also very stressful. I’m in a new place far away from anything that is familiar to me. Thank goodness for Apple Maps. It’s told me where grocery stores and mattress stores and various other stores I needed were. It’s nic for anything that makes this process easier.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
