There’s a huge blogger conference taking place the first week of August. The conference is taking place in New York City. NEW YORK CITY? Does anyone else remember that old commercial – I think it was for salsa. Anyway, with all these crazy blogger ladies descending on the city, there are lots of plans being made. One of the things that I’m discovering is that for many of these bloggers, this will be their first flight. Therefore, I will share some of my fun flights & experiences.
 
I was somewhat surprised to hear this, as my first flight was before I could remember it. The first plane ride I remember, though, was going to see my dad when I was 5 or 6. I was a very confident flier, and didn’t need no stinkin’ child flying alone escort.  No siree bob. I don’t remember much about the flight itself. However, once I got off the plane, I was to be met by my dad. I disembarked the plane, started down the tunnel and simply bowled right past my dad. He’s chasing me, calling my name, and I was just gonna go get my luggage!

Puzzle Baron Puzzle Books

 

AS a kid, I spent a lot of time in transit to places or waiting around.  Waiting after school for my mom.  On the way to dance classes.  On the bus to meets.  In a plane, train, or automobile going somewhere for pleasure.  It was during this time that I discovered the joys of puzzle books

Crosswords.  Word Searches.  Word Jumbles.  And the somewhat elusive logic puzzle books.  These were my constant companions and time fillers.  They were somewhat easy to find, inexpensive, and portable.  I could toss one in my backpack, my book, or even my mom’s purse.  I’m sure these puzzle books gave others the same hours of enjoyment as people then didn’t have to deal with me annoying them.  Heh.

Prince Harry Plays Basketball

Prince Harry playing basketball.  Yup.  BTW – whoda thunk that Harry would have been the charming, charismatic, and better-looking Prince?  I guess everyone once Wills started morphing into Charles.

Are You Thinking About Moving

Moving and Storage

 

I’ve always moved a lot.  It seems that as long as I can remember, the longest we stayed in one area was about 2 years.  I suppose it was the restless spirit that kept us on the move.  The most traumatic of these moves was when we moved to Hawaii. 

I was 5 or 6, and we got rid of absolutely everything we owned.  We literally moved with just a couple of suitcases.  Our condo was furnished, so it wasn’t as bad as it sounds.  Anyway, I had this tiny fold-up table and itty bitty school chair that I just adored.  My mom got rid of them, and I thought my heart would break.  I mean, you can tell that 24 years later, I still have issues with it, right? 

There was an opportunity about 6 or 8 months ago where it looked like I might re-locate to Canada.  While it was more of a lark that was pursued than a really serious opportunity, I imagine that move would have been somewhat similar to the Hawaii move.  I’m sure rather than garage sale-ing and donating everything, we probably would have put it in storage. 

Had we moved to Quebec, we’d need to know moving terms in French, too!   Déménagement Montréal  is Move to Montreal.  Entreposage Montréal is Montreal Storage. 

Now you’re prepared for your move, too!

 

Brought to you by your friends at ADT moving.  All opinions are mine.
