As much as I whine and moan at times that I am tired of moving around so often and having to start over, I will venture to say I am full of crap.
I have thought about it time and time again, and the truth is I love moving simply because I get to start over. I consider the house I get at my new duty station to be my “blank canvas”. Think about it , you get this new place (ok maybe not new but new to you), new walls, new layout and just a new fresh start in life.
When I move I do stupid things for this blank canvas like:
Look up new recipes because I get to cook in a new kitchen (although that fizzles out after a few months)
Go on a diet and walk because I am in a new neighborhood (that usually last about a week)
Get excited about going to the commissary because it’s new to me and I can’t wait to restock my cabinets ( I hate going after that)
Buy an excess supply of yard and garden tools only never to use them
Buy a bunch of wall decor that never makes it up on the wall
Deep clean daily ( haaaa …again not daily for long)
That is just part of my list. I am sure I will have plenty of pictures and video to show you more of the stupid things I do in my new home when I arrive at Fort Bragg.
So tell me is moving into a new place for you like a blank canvas, what things do you do or buy out of the sheer excitement of starting over?
