Good: After three weeks of intensive culling and packing, the UHaul was loaded and we left Brunswick, Maine.
Bad: I realized that I’d been so focused in my own moving bubble that I didn’t really take time to honor, celebrate, and leave the community and place that held me for 24 years.
Ugly: The stress, weird eating patterns over the last week, and exhaustion finally took its toll and did a number on my GI tract. After numerous stops, traffic, and a dose of Pepto, we arrived in NJ too late for the intended storage near New York City. (Plus we were too exhausted to unload anything at that point.) Now my stuff will end up in a Princeton storage unit. Not what I’d hoped but I’m rolling with it.

Good luck with your move, Anna!
Thank you so much, Kami. If you have anyone I should get in touch with in NYC, let me know!
