July-4th-Quote

The last four days have been a little hectic, but I’m finally out of Binghamton, NY, and moved into my new home in Van Etten, NY.  It took only three car loads to get the rest of my stuff from Binghamton. I even had the chance to go to the NY Faerie Festival, A Midsummer’s Dream in Ouaquaga, NY which I’ll link to another post shortly. After my final trip in Binghamton, I got a call from work asking me to work four hours Monday evening. There are still a couple things I have to work on at my new home but in time I’ll get things completed since I have a lot more time to myself.

The old landlord, who was putting in new windows on the side of the house, didn’t even acknowledge my presence. Whatever! Good riddance to you too!! He wasn’t probably happy with me because I told his son that I was planning on leaving furniture I wasn’t able to move. At least I didn’t leave the place a mess. Oh, I wanted to but I’m not that kind of person. I even made a trip to the Salvation Army to drop off a donation of clothes and other things. I also went to the Broome County Library to donate all my hard copy of books which was painful for me. But I’m minimalizing and going electronic, so the relief afterward was more rewarding than the sadness of tossing a small library of hard copy books. But I know they will benefit the library and go to others who will enjoy them. The last trip comprised of all my computers and the stereo.

The last trip comprised of all my computers and the stereo. I didn’t realize I had ten computers and eight monitors stored in various places. My goal was to take those “shells”  and monitors that don’t work to the Broom County dump. Obviously, it didn’t happen like I planned. I was able to load everything in my car in one load. At approximately 2 p.m., I left Binghamton, for the last time.

While I was scheduled as four days off, I knew work would call asking me to come in because of short staff.  Surprisingly, they didn’t Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But come Monday, when I was in Binghamton about to finally leave, they asked if I would be able to come in for four hours or more. I agreed since it was 2 p.m. and I was given the opportunity to come in anytime before 7 p.m. So when I got to my new home, I placed all the stuff in my front bedroom, showered and off to work I went. I just love the trip to work now, straight up NYS Highway 34 into Ithaca. It takes approximately 30 minutes to and from work. Loving it! I can’t wait to see the gas savings since my car gets more than 30 miles to a gallon.

I just love my new place. Across the street is a small farm, so I’m visited by the rooster and his eight hens every morning while I’m sitting on the porch by the front bedroom. They also take shade under the porch. There are times I come out to a sudden wave of chickens scattering everywhere – a little scary (**chuckle). There isn’t much traffic coming down the street either. It’s just quiet and serene. Just the way I have always dreamed.

There is still a lot of work to do, but things will happen at the right time.

Now off to work . . .
