Packin' My Bags and A-Leavin'

Hey Folks,

I'm moving.  Packing my bags and a-leaving, finally.  I'm uprooting myself from my native Los Angeles, CA for the wild grey yonder of Seattle, WA.

And knowing me, this will be my fate halfway there:

Avouer qu'on est perdu - Cumulonymbus

In other words, lost as a bat in broad daylight.

So, for about two weeks (give or take), I will probably be missing in action.  Rest assured, I will think about you all every single day.  There will be much weeping and shaking from withdrawal, but I will be brave about this.  It's not like we're breaking up.  It''s just a brief, necessary pause to start afresh.  In more ways than one.

When I come back, I promise to shower you with lots and lots of ridiculous attention.  You'll beg me to stop.



  1. Good luck with the move! I've always wanted to go to Seattle & I tend to say it's a place I'd like to live (despite the fact that I've never been there - I just know!). Hopefully I'll get to trek out west sometime in the near future.

  2. I hope you don't end up on a bench somewhere reading an old fashioned map :)

    Safe travels and good luck with your move/journey. Can't wait to hear back from you once you're settled in wherever you end up.

    Happy weekend to you!

  3. Seattle is my absolute favorite place in the whole world. Really. And Bellingham, just North. I am very excited for you.

  4. Sounds like an adventure.

    The Mrs.' older sister and her hubs moved there a few years ago and have enjoyed there time in Seattle.

    Safe travels and I'm looking forward to reading about the great things you do there.

  5. I'm not too familiar with American Geography, but good luck with your move nonetheless:D
    All the best wherever the wind may take you and hope all goes well upon your travels
    the penguins will be waiting here for you!^-^V

  6. Look forward to reading your next post!

  10. Can't wait to hear about your Seattle adventures! :) Congratulations to get the job - sameday callback? :O! I'm sure the move will be a great experience for you. Are you coming here alone or are there friends you have here? Nevertheless, God bless your move! :)

  11. the photo says it all -- but the excitement will outweigh the trepidation and weariness that comes with every move! fresh starts are great.

    hugs to you.

  12. Good luck! Can't wait for some stories when you come back!

  15. Oh so you did actually move- now you know I haven't kept up with your blog! I lose track of everything:(

    Hope you are enjoying Seattle. I have heard some interesting things recently about the people out there (total coincidence!).
