Farewell Washington, Hello Indiana

That's right...........I am moving to Indiana!
We found out Friday that my husband got the job and it has been a whirlwind of planning and packing. The moving truck arrives on Sept. 25th. That leaves me a little over 2 weeks to have it all done. ( Just packing my craft room took a day and a half!)
I keep meaning to post, and had ideas of uploading pictures of things in Indiana, but, you know, I honestly have no time for uploading pictures. So, I thought I better at least type something and let you all know.
 
The big quest has been finding a place for the movers to take my stuff. I'm hoping to have one locked in tomorrow. ( fingers crossed. more on that if we get it)
 
We'll be living about 20 miles south of Indianapolis. I really liked that city- small and laid back. There is going to be a lot to explore. And, in Franklin, where my husband will work, I already made a friend who is going to teach me to weave!
 
I love moving. Actually, being in Olympia for 4 years was unusual for me. I thrive on new places and meeting people and discovering a new area. I never planned on Indiana........but I generally just go where the wind blows me. This time it's gonna plop me down in the middle of a corn field.
 
I'll post when I find some time here and there, and I'll be stopping by your blogs soon.

Ah! So the decision has been made. I received your postcard today saying 'maybe'. Glad you are happy about it and look forward to following your adventures. Good luck with your packing. It's a lot of work, Katie - so remember to take a few breaks and have a little fun. hugs, Donna

Oh exciting, I kind of guess from your last post that this would be the news. Weaving, oh you will love it. My weaver friend adored your felt ribbon...she waits for all my mail art so she can share and yours was the last piece she saw. Good luck packing and getting it done. Remember to take a break and not stress out. xox

Wow, a big change, from mist to corn! You will have no problem navigating all the work of moving with your joyous positive outlook. Happy days are always ahead with that!

How fun!!! Its always fun to explore a new area, make new friends and have new experiences. Just think of all the mail art you can receive at your new address!

How exciting. I have been horribly impolite to not acknowledge your awesome mail. As soon as I got it I was going to sit right down and respond instead of sending an impersonal electronic message. and somehow three weeks has slipped by. guess I shouldn't send my reply to Olympia...
Good luck with the move!
