BEAR, STOPPED DEAD IN HIS TRACKS

You probably will not see me for the next three weeks. There is soooooooo much to do, and little time within which to do it.

When next we visit, Bear will be living in a new place (which I fervently hope will not be a zoo).

Ah, shifting! One of my least favourite past-times.

See you.

See you.

Your house is SOLD, which releases some of your trepidation...but in my mind, being in the same position as you, I see it as the "changing of the guard" and quite a sad fact of life that - until now - I only watched happening to those older than me.

Now, I'm the old one, moving on. Stepping up to the plate that younger people never envision happening to them.

Hope the new place is much better than a zoo!

® Lee: A man after my own heart. Sigh!

® potsoc: Absolutely, Paul!

® dana: "The old order changeth, yielding place to new." To quote Tennyson.

® Tundiel: I'm sure there are worse places for a Bear than in a zoo. Right now, though, I cannot think of one.
Our new spot, in one of those "human filing cabinets," will be "different" and "interesting."

Happy moving, Old Bear. And thanks for the nudge to look up Tennyson's poem after many years.

Rob-bear said...

® BF: Thanks for the encouragement, and glad to have spurred you on in a literary quest.

ain't for city gals said...

I need to read back or catch up or something..I thought you already moved...are you moving again? I have to say..I like your posts better in your own voice...nothing against Sadie but...

Rob-bear said...

® afcg: This is the only move about which I've spoken. There have been a lot of steps on the path, beginning with finding a new home for Miss Sadie. It's been a long process.
And I feel better writing for me, instead of letting Sadie do it. Thanks for your observation.

All the luck, Rob-Bear!!

Rob-bear said...

® Gaston Studio: Thanks for the good wishes.
This moving business is really getting in the way of living. Sigh!

Nancy said...

Something new to look forward to!

Tattie Weasle said...

Hate moving experiences but sometimes it does lead to new adventures!!! Good LUck!

About Last Weekend said...

Shifting is a nightmare! There is sadness with getting rid of things but also jubilation from being so free! Good luck with everything!

Rob-bear said...

® Nancy: "Something new to look forward to." Yes; I must keep reminding myself of that.

® Tattie Weasle: "New adventures!" Have to keep reminding myself of that, too.

® ALW: "Jubilation from being so free!" Well, yes, I suppose. Right now, I'm stuck in the "sadness with getting rid of things." A lifetime's worth of work, particularly. I probably should have cleared this out a long time ago.

Bluestocking Mum said...

Fabulous. But stressful. Be of luck to you Rob Bear.

And I had no idea you were doing the A-Z challenge. +Funny how me being out of things for a few months and just catching up, I find you had a blog all this time.

But I've found you now and hopefully you will return to us all soon. Comfortable, secure and happy in your new home (not Zoo!)

warm wishes

We all live in a zoo. Just hope not to live in a cage!

Seriously, take good care during this time of excitement, let down, highs, and lows. I always bawl my eyes out when I leave a place, even if I want to move! What an emotionally and physically draining thing it is.

GutsyWriter said...

Bear is out and will be exhausted from his move. Can't wait to hear from you when you live in your new place. Good luck with all the moving.

Rob-bear said...

® Bluestockings: Glad you've come by for a visit. Thanks for the good wishes.

® Lydia: Actually, I was thinking that very same thing. But I had planned not to mention how zoo-like is our existence. Way too depressing!

® Gutsy Writer: I will survive this move, and I will be back.
Hmmmm. Didn't General MacArthur say something like that when he left the Philippines?

Amanda said...

good luck, r-bear. i hope all goes well with your move and that it doesn't tire you out too much. hopefully you can rest once you settle in - and we'll look forward to a post from - and all about - your new digs.

Rob-bear said...

® Amanda: Thanks. Truth is we haven't started moving, but I'm exhausted already.

randomdanni said...

Good luck with the move!

Also, I've given you an award! You can stop by my blog to pick it up! :D

Yes, Bear, you have a lot to do! Take it easy, and things will move along. See you soon.

Helen said...

Dear Bear ~ No zoo for you! That comes when you get to letter Z!

dana said...

Come on bear....you can't leave us wondering if you're now someone's rug on the hearth.

Suburbia said...

Hope it is all going smoothly, thinking of you...

nollyposh said...

Good Luck Rob-Bear X:-)

Nancy said...

We'll be here when you get back!

Diana said...

Best of luck to you Bear. My kids just moved again and I know how exhausting it can be. Take care of yourself! Have a Blessed Holy Week.
Love Di ♥

CAMILLA said...

Hello dear Bear.!

Apologies for popping in late, so sorry to hear you have had a rough time of it lately, I had no idea about sweet Miss Sadie. I am sure you will miss her dreadfully. Perhaps the kind owners she is now with will let you pop in now and again to see her.

Best of luck with the new move Bear, hope all runs smoothly for you. A new path to tread with more adventures for you.

Miss you on the perch.

Best Wishes to you dear Bear.
