Moving Madness

Category: Life as a Vexx | Posted: Wed Sep 05, 2007 10:51 pm

After months of back-and-forth between here and Salem and zero savings accumulated toward the initial plan of moving in February, Robbie and I decided it was time for a serious, adult conversation (you have NO IDEA how hard that is for me) about a solution.
The conclusion was; the only thing I ever find the time to do here is garden, I've been homesick forever, and I hate *almost* everything about being here (Rob and cats excluded, of course). The plan being: move down ASAP, get a job, save money and get a place all ready for Robbie when the lease is done in Feb. Kind of a reverse from the move here.

I had to do what every twenty-something dreads and ask the folks if my old room was available for VERY temporary usage. They have shown a frightening abundance of enthusiasm. Momma's ready to paint the room "whatever color you want and matching drapes!". Dad's so excited to have his "little Robert Plant" back for band practice at moment's notice. I love those people, but can you see how I turned out so odd?

I can't believe how much labor, love, frustration, paranoia, obsession, grass seed and FREAKIN' ROCK HAULING went into a backyard I'd only enjoy for a few months. Ohhhoho, believe you me; I'm taking the Thyme, Rosemary and favorite stones. I pity the fool that tries to stop me.

You are not odd, at least not by my standards. And all of this just when you decide to quit smoking. Moving is a good time, however, to start new habits. I wish you luck, with both ventures.

Yes! Perhaps a new place with decent soil to play in! I've only been down to Salem a couple o' times, but I really like it (almost as much as Bandon, not quite! I like remote places!) Besides, you have been able to learn so much from your current garden, I bet your next one (even if it's just in big pots) will be fantastic :) Your family sounds envyably wonderful!

I love Bandon, too. Great jams and cheese. Salem is getting big fast, but it's still got small-town character. Olympia is probably the closest to it I've ever seen, complete with near-identical downtowns.

Your family does sound great Lexxi, parents always dream about offspring returning to the roost. Their enthusiasm is not surprising :D
