Monday and Tuesday are the big moving days!! using today and tomorrow to get all my stuff packed right back up. It seems like yesterday that I moved in here.. and now here we go again… but in a good way.
This house is going to be amazing. I have my mind set. It is beautiful inside.. and I have free reigns to decorate and make it magical. I am going to find a way to make a studio space on one side of the living room too… so I can finally finally finally have a place to leave my art and paints and beads and nicknacks OUT! I will be one block from my ocean.. and I’ll be able to sleep with my windows open again without fear of riff-raff hobos crawling in. Rocko and I will be able to go for our super long walk adventures without having to get in the car and drive somewhere.. I’m gonna start over with house plants and gardening… and I’m really really gonna start up that project I had in mind of painting funny beach access signs.
Ok.. I’m getting ahead of myself… just desperate for things to look forward to and get my mind off…u know.
I can’t focus though on packing.. I put one thing in a box then just rearrange things for an hour. My mind is all.over.the.place. I’m sick of not feeling like myself.
Hopefully getting back on the beach in a positive, inspiring environment will kick a little life back into me.
So through all the turbulence of December I had to leave folly. Moved to James Island with a friend that had extra space. It’s only 10 minutes from the beach… but I dreamed and dreamed of being walking distance from the sand for so long, and Folly gave that to me…so saying goodbye to it was heartbreaking.
However, Cayti and I found a prospect.. a gorgeous 3 bedroom 2 bath, ONE block from the ocean… it has everything you could possibly want in a house… everything my past folly homes were lacking (heating/AC, dishwasher, washer/dryer, outdoor shower, closets, porches)
…We signed the lease yesterday!! :):):)
So as of February 1st.. I’ll be back on my beloved folly.. closer to the beach then ever.
I’m also going to start training as a server at Surf Bar on Friday. It’s a favorite on folly, and a goldmine in the summer time.. I hope I do well.. I’m not that good under fast-paced pressure, I get flustered and frantic haha… but I’d love to get some hours there this summer… and be able to ride my bike to work :)
