On November 20th, 2020 I closed on my new home in Leesburg Florida. The journey was complicated, financially straining, emotionally wired and physically daunting but, here I am! The photo above shows my new back yard. This view alone, drew me to the home. I thought NOW I can sit, write and read. It is now November 29th and I have not sat to read or write in my new back yard. What have I been doing? I have been unpacking boxes, cleaning, learning how to operate the sprinkler system, the washer and dryer and the garage opener. I had no idea that moving from a mobile home in Orlando to a “traditional” home in Leesburg was such a huge undertaking.
Today I decided that’s it! I’m taking a “me day” and I”m sitting down and writing. I promised myself that I would complete my memoir in a year and it’s already November 29th! Did I accomplish my task? Nope! I was on a distracted mission to get the cable boxes hooked up and running.
It’s evening now and the day has slipped pass me but I am still determined to get back to writing. Maybe tomorrow right after I take a nap on the hammock in my back yard.
