Good day all! I am still wrapping up the whole clearing out the apartment bit. I should be done by Friday, just time to get my students the following Monday. There has been a hectic non-focused scramble to get the remaining things from my apartment to storage or to the dumpster these last few days.
When I started to really struggle with my lack of focus, I had Ms. BFS come over and help out. To be more accurate, I mentioned how stressed I was and she offered to spend time helping me. When our other friend Mandy also heard I was feeling stressed, she actually joined Ms. BFS and they spent an evening with me sorting, piling and packing. They really made this move a much much more pleasant experience.
On Saturday, I threw a small giving to move out party and let people take anything they wanted that I still had laying around. There were a few items I set aside for my artsy neighbor that I am going to drop off to her husband that were off limits and a few things I was still figuring out that I later just put by the dumpster but for the most part, I cleared out so much of my house that evening that I have a great foot hold for the next three days.
It really makes me think about how wonderful my friend group is. They have been there for me when I was down and moody for no reason. They have been there through my past break up for both me and the guy I was seeing at the time. (He’s a wonderful man but not for me) they have helped me find my feet and feel at home in Houston and have really helped an supported me through this move.
I hope everyone has friends that carry them through hard times and that they can help carry as well.
To my Houston ladies, you rock. (Their significant others do too)
