We’re moving. Again. 13th time is the charm, right? It’s still exciting. Not the packing, of course, but the idea that this time we may stay somewhere more than five minutes. We’re not running from the law or anything. Each move has seemed completely rational at the time: jobs, school, opportunities. It’s just when I add them all up I realize that the nomadic lifestyle may not be what’s best for Sissy and Piper. So, this move finally feels permanent. Whew.
Last night at dinner we were discussing the logistics of the move (did I mention it’s only a few weeks away? Aah!). “Do we have to pack everything or will we have movers?” Sissy asked. She knows this drill well.
“We’re only moving two blocks, so I think we’ll move most of it ourselves,” I said. “We’ll get help with the furniture and piano.”
“Can I bring my stuffed animals?” Piper asked.
“Absolutely. We’re taking everything,” I said.
“Can I live with you when I grow up, too?”
“You can live with me, P,” Sissy offered. Whew, again.
“Thanks, Sissy. Can my boyfriend come to?”
“No. Just you. You can be weird Aunt Piper in the basement,” Sissy said. “My kids will love you.”
“Thanks, Sissy. I’ll bring my stuffed animals, too.”
I was the weird aunt for a while–it is a good gig.
Piper seems to embrace its potential, too.
You must be glad they’re working out those details for you.
I am relieved. They clearly know what’s best for their futures.
No worries- Andrew said that he and Piper will live with me! Please call me if you need help packing! I moved from one country to the other so I am good at packing:)
Thanks, Sasha. At least you’ll know that Piper will entertain you when she moves in.
Are you part of the witness protection program? If the awnser will endanger either of us, please ignore.
Good luck w/the move.
Thanks for the luck. We aren’t witnesses that I know of, but that would make a lot of sense. Maybe we’re FBI. Yeah, that’s it. How cool would that be?
From what you have written, Piper might make a good spy.
