Time for another update on the move to Colorado. As many of you who follow this blog know I am selling out of horses altogether. This means that moving to Colorado will be a simpler project. I’m not going to go into why I am selling out of horses here. That information is filtered all through several posts about the horses already. I’m pretty open about most things I blog about here, but there are some things that I just feel are not for the world to read about and some of my reasons for selling out of horses are among them. Folks will just have to accept that fact, and that’s that.
Onward to the exciting process of shoving off to Colorado’s wonderland. I leave June 26th barring nothing hinders those plans. I have had a major set back financially due to unexpected client cancellations which is making me pare down even more. Losing the feed bill on the horses will help once I am in Colorado, not having to spend excess money on the horse trailer to ready it will save bundles and put less wear and tear on my truck. I am selling the horse trailer so the few dollars I make off the sale will help immensely once I’m moved. Not having to haul a second trailer up behind Rebecca’s truck for the horse panels also will save a bundle in gas and rentals fees. Will I miss my horses, you better believe I will, they are intertwined into my being. Beyond and so much more powerful than that this current experience in my life has set me onto a raging river that is hurdling me into a massive reinventing of self. One I am so anxious to experience.
FIRST STOP – SILVERTON

Does that sound romantic or what? I mean in the sense of exploration like some romantic novel about someone who ventured into an old mining town along his way to somewhere even hedid not know. Really that is me, in a female sense of the word. Still planning on staying with Heather for the summer, however some folks have come forward with some pretty enticing rental opportunities. Since I am horseless, I can stay in Silverton through the winter at these lower rental fees and experience living in the Alps for one winter.
Check out this blog for some 2008 winter fun… lol
I’ll be able to travel Colorado and to see how other places winter as well before I move to my final nesting place.
In preparation, I have scaled down or simplified my life to the point that I can haul most everything packed in bins in one load in the back of my pickup. Things I will take are only the absolutely necessary clothing, bedding, my kitchen wears, and bathroom stuff, my computer and few mementos, some books, some videos, my camping gear, one Christmas box a rug, my plants, and Dragon and his cage. Once I get settled I’ll re-nest in whatever manner that the reinvented me emerges. I cant wait to see who this new person is!?!
I have learned a big lesson in all that has transpired in the past 3 years or so. Letting go, purging, and opening up doors has been for me the path to happiness and peace. I feel so empowered.
