I’m Alive After Moving Yesterday!

I am alive and well (but oh so tired) after moving yesterday and today from my previous abode to my new one…..in Running Springs. I have loved this community for many, many years (try about 40) so there’s no way I can move out of “my community.”

No matter if you just move from one place in a community to another place it’s exhausting but it has been a good move already. Thank you to my family and friends who helped keep me from working too hard. I appreciate all of you.

Moving is never easy even if it’s just from one place up here to another place up here. I’ll be back to blogging as soon as things calm down which they will.o” I just wanted to
