Right now, I am having some trouble looking forward to the move to Charleston. Maybe it has something to do with my father's health. Perhaps I think to much about ALL OF THE STUFF that needs to be done. Or maybe it is just in my nature. Whatever. I can't get to thinking about the firsts that will happen with my move. I'm concentrating on the lasts.
1. Last day without my house being filled with packing boxes. That day has already come and gone.
2. Last year I will see my Japanese maples in their fall glory.
3. This morning, I completed the last piece in my studio.
4. Last Christmas in my house. I did not know until last week that Christmas 2011 was the last Christmas in my house. We have decided to move on out of here before Christmas, visit family and divest and accrue presents on the way down, and greet the movers on December 27th.
