Week 19: Capturing Hope

Hope:  to cherish a desire with anticipation; to expect with confidence.
What a perfect word for this I am living deep with anticipation of the HHG (household goods...everything has to have an acronym) pack and pickup next week.  I am down to less that two weeks left until I say goodbye to my Langley family and start my Charleston adventure.

I hope for the continued success of my wonderful team here in Virginia...we've worked hard on so many things and have (for the most part) stayed positive through it all.  I can't believe I've been in that office for three whole years...and now I have to start closing it all out and handing it off...I hope it goes smoothly!  

I hope I can keep my sense of humor through the next two weeks.  I almost had a nervous breakdown when I saw a bug on my windshield the other night while driving through a tunnel.  Uh...seriously?  Relax.  I got the bug out and got home safe and sound, but it made me realize just how nuts I've gotten. Plus, stress makes me get weird rashes and I don't need any more of those!  haaaaaaaa

I hope my cats enjoy the roadtrip next week with me and Ma.  They are not happy travelers.  Heck, I hope my Ma enjoys the roadtrip with the cats!

Cherished anticipation.  Excitement.  Awesome.

  1. Ooooohhh I love that photo! Hope all goes well in this transition!

  2. Yes that is a lovely photo... I couldn't imagine moving my cats anywhere... I have 3 two of them won't even stay in the same room! Good luck with your move & I hope you enjoy Charleston!

  3. Charleston is such a beautiful city - in places. The food is to die for. Have a wonderful transition.

  4. Jen, you hit on a topic that is of interest to me. I am planning on taking my cats on a three-day journey this fall and one kitty in particular turns into a bengal tiger in the car. Any tips for me? Do you keep them in separate crates during the journey? And good luck!

  5. Great photo Jen. Good luck with your move. I hope you like Charleston.

  6. Oh wow, your photo is amazing! I really love it. I hope everything goes well for you. Good luck!

  7. Stunning photo! Had to laugh at the hope your Mom enjoys the ride with the cats. ; ) Best wishes for a smooth transition!

  8. I sure do hope your moving trip goes well. Sounds like you need less stress than more! Good luck!

  9. Love your upward looking picture of hope! Good luck with your preparations and journey!

  10. What a great photo! Wishing you an uneventful trip and a smooth transition in your new home.

  11. I don't envy you travelling with cats. Mine are a nightmare in the car. Good luck and safe travels!

  12. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in
    getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!
