Haven't been able to sleep well/enough the last few days. Probably due to the fact that we are in the midst of preparing to move into a new apartment which we have just completed renovations on. Now the hard part of packing & & cleaning & moving things over.

Had a garage sale last week to try to find "better homes" for some of our belongings. The preparation that went into this was very much like going through the memories of the last 15 years. Bittersweet sometimes, nostalgic, a bit sad, as I realise that my kids will never be babies again, and that I will not have anymore babies to hold (until one of the my boys give me grandchildren!) Going through the photo albums was especially emotional, looking at pictures of people who looked so youthful, some gone forever, some ageing gracefully, some not so gracefully.

I can't wait for this move to be over and done with...maybe I can get some sleep then...

just a very short entry now: been too busy to post. New home, moving, packing, sorting, organising, worrying, get the picture. Add sleep deprivation to that & it's not a pretty picture.

more later...
