And the Day Comes……

And eventually the day comes when you realize that this is the new normal, so you’d better get used to it and move on.

there is a time to mourn, and a time to move on

I’ve been offered a job in North Central Florida, so I’ll be nearby Jacksonville, Gainesville and Tallahassee. I’ve got to find us yet another place to live and then get packing.

I recorded an interview with Paws to Talk podcast back before Christmas and that is going to air next week. More info to come. I hope you listen!

By the way, this is my 900th blog post. What an accomplishment. I’ve been blogging longer than most of my relationships have lasted. LOL

and cookies to dole out….. don’t forget that!

Well, there are still mouths to feed and litter boxes to scoop, so best get on with it.

Enjoy your weekend.

  1. Still sending hugs……and a congratulations for the new job although moving I’m SURE isn’t high on your list of “fun activities” along with finding another house! Good luck Jen…..moving forward isn’t always all that much “fun” but it is of course necessary. Keep telling yourself you can do anything….because you can!

    Pam (and Sam)

  2. Congratulations on the new job. Moving forward can be hard but you will persevere. I know you will do well. All the fur babies will help as much as they can, I know. They are a good crew. Hugs to all of you and a comforting pat on your arm. Blessings

  3. Moving on is sometimes hard thing ……but I’m sure that DeDe wants to cheer you up! Because she was a beauty consultant! She wants to make you feel happy from inside and out! Wow! 900 posts! Congratulations!
    Time flies so fast! Good lucks with your new job and new place, Jen. Please remember we are all here for you. Hugs

  4. Congratulations with your new job, I hope it’ll bring you satisfaction. Finding a new place with room for the animals, that’s quite a job too! I wish you luck, and hugs for all the furry friends (and you, if you want too).

  5. Congratulations on your new job and 900th post. You’ll have to visit St. Augustine after you move. It is our favorite place to go to get away for a couple of days.

  6. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR 900th. POST!! THAT is a Really BIG accomplishment.
    AND Congratulations on the new Job.

  7. Congratulations on your new job! Moving is hard work, I hope it all goes smoothly.
    900 posts is quite an achievement! I’m looking forward to listening to the podcast.
    I’m sure you have some very special memories of DeDe which will bring you pleasure to think on when the pain has eased a little.

  8. A big hug and a congrats to you for everything…best of luck in your new venture and before you know it you will be well over 1000 with your blogs and celebrating again lol…

  9. Congratulations on the new job. Hoping your move goes smooth and your new job and home will be just what you would want. Congratulations on the 900 posts too! Hugs and nose kisses

  10. Not another move! Ah well, at least you can console yourself with the fact that each time you move makes you more of an expert on HOW to move. I’m sure you wouldn’t be doing this if the new job weren’t worth it, so big congrats on that.

    Oreo, Ling Ling and Tilly Tot wish Rumpydog and the cats an easy move. Their advice is, don’t sweat it. It’s soon over and then you have the fun of exploring the new place. And they send lots of nose nuzzling and rump smelling.

    My advice is determination, lots of friends to help, a pluritude of cardboard boxes, a stout marking pen, and a bracing drink to help you relax at the end of it (and pizza…did we mention pizza?)

  11. Congratulations on the new job, Jen. Here’s wishing you a smooth move and transition.

    We are excited about your interview — please do keep us posted, okay? Oh, and congrats on 900 posts (WOW)!

  12. If I moved more often I would have some much junk! That is about the only good thing I can think about moving. Good luck with your move and your new job, sometimes a fresh start is helpful.

  13. Sending lots of hugs and purrs for an uneventful move…also virtual boxes and sturdy packing tape! Wish we could be there to help. Forty paws stand ready! Gainesville has a vet school, so there’ll be lots of compassionate anipals and their people to surround your sweet family with kindness. Luck and love to all!

  14. 900 posts. Now that’s commitment. Congrats on that. Good luck on your new job. Rumpy and that gang will be very happy if you don’t need to work weekends or nights. They like you around,

    In terms of moving, you must be an expert on that having just moved a few months ago. You get to purge each time you pack. When I was thinking about moving and beginning to purge, the questions I asked myself was, Do I want to pay for the mover for moving it. If the answer was, “No”, i purged it.

    Good luck house hunting and with your move. What’s the time frame?

  15. Life is a fickle bitch she matches on regardless of what we are going through. I suppose we can look on this as a hindrance or a blessing.
    Congratulations on the new job! I am so impressed at how you cope with moving and looking after the loving furry pals. I hope this latest move affords you some permanency so you and the gang can recharge your batteries.
    It is sad that the beautiful Dede has gone you gave her a happy life and she gave you love, she would not of weathered another move so time has removed that worry from your shoulders, at a high price I know.
    What I am trying to say in my cack handed way is good luck with the move and the job. DeDe will always be in your heart.The rest of the gang are quite capable of keeping you busy.
    Well done on the 900th blog that is an accolade 😀 Good luck and I look forward to the next post.I may just tic like more than I comment but I have grown to love you all.:) xxx

  16. They say “a change is sometimes as good as a rest”, although I’m sure you won’t be thinking that as you’re packing everything up! Good luck with the move and best wishes for the future, Jen. Big congrats on your 900th post!! 🙂

  17. Congratulations on the 900th post…! thats a great accomplishment

  18. Congrats! That’s a whole lot of posts – and your audience still grows. Appreciate all your efforts.
    Excited about your new job…although UGH relocation and packing. Sounds like a great spot. (and they are bound to have cookies and a nice yard just for you Rumpy. Thanks for helping Jen!
