One Giant Leap

As I tried to think outside my bipolar management box this summer, I kept coming back to the increased isolation caused by COVID-19. So, I asked my sister if it would be possible to live together.

Not only was she agreeable, but completely willing to sell her house so we could find a place that fit us. In just a couple of weeks, we found the right house with a lovely garden situated in a quiet neighborhood. She takes possession tomorrow and we will be moved in by the end of the month.

I know this will make a huge difference in my mental health. Just to hear someone else puttering around. And I believe my sister when she says it will be good for her too.

So, here’s to stepping outside the box!

      Thanks so much, my friends. Sherry is moving on Tuesday and I’m moving the following Monday. At least my furniture and heavy stuff is. I get until mid-November to S-L-O-W-L-Y transfer all my stuff one carload at a time.

    Wonderful News to Hear!!! I’m so ever grateful the skyrocketing renter costs in the summer of 2019 and the loss of a roommate, led my son to move home to ‘save up to go forth later.” – Having him here has been such a blessing during these past trying months on many fronts – Best Wishes for you all on moving day and ‘housewarming’ blessing sent your way!
