this moving thing is so complicated. especially when it was supposed to be our adventure.
a uhaul is almost 1500 dollars less than a pod, but requires all the money up front, where a pod only requires 500 dollars up front. the uhaul means i likely wont have to severely purge my stuff and that i actually arrive with stuff, which could be exactly the comfort my fragile psyche needs while grieving still 1000 miles from my support system. the pod wont be able to be delivered until august at the earliest, since the estate is still frozen and the death certificate will likely never be finished. a uhaul means i need at least one other person to make the trip, because i will have to drive my car...and i need to make the decision by tomorrow. i cant even think clearly about day to day activities....like i cant even remember showering is a priority, and now i need to make major logistical decisions. they say widows shouldnt make any major decisions for a year. i see truth in that....

and last night i had a dream about her. it was awful. i feel bad that my brain even produced that dream.

Depending on where you're moving to there may be some other options.

I don't know if you'll get this, but I recently came back to LJ and tracked you down.

I'm so sorry for your loss, and I can say that I've gone through similar circumstances recently. I've lost 5 family and friends over the past 1.5 years; it still strikes me even now as I re-read what I've typed.

The only thing that's brought any sort of light in my life, and my surviving friends and family, was my marriage and the arrival of our first little bundle of joy.

Good things do happen after the bad, you just need to wait it out and keep busy.

I hope you're ok.

I know we havent exchanged in a long while but I never forget my old friends. I guess its like being a comrade in the service, where you dont have to have that constant contact all the time...you just know you like someone and that no matter what, their part of you.

Did I ever tell you that I admired you? Or that I was proud of you? or that I thought you might be president some day? I did...ahem, I do.

Whatever is going on around you I know you are more than equal to the task. Oh, I know your not exactly perfect, (Hell thats one of the reasons that I like you), but you are truly special and deserving all of the love and Honor life can bring.

On this Birthday I want you to know that I honor you for just being you and your achievements too but mostly for your loyalty and self sacrifice to others.

I am proud to have known you on LJ and to be able to say with confidence that, "You Rock" !

Happy Birthday!
Vince,
OXOjamm.
