Moving Day

From –


Moving Day is a 1936 American animated short film produced by Walt Disney Productions and released by United Artists. The cartoon, set during the contemporary Great Depression, follows the antics of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy as they frantically pack their belongings after being dispossessed from their home. The film was directed by Ben Sharpsteen and includes the voices of Walt Disney as Mickey, Clarence Nash as Donald, Pinto Colvig as Goofy, and Billy Bletcher as Pete as the Sheriff.

Today is moving day 2016!

2 months ago, Gary and I moved from Dallas, Texas to Pensacola, Florida.  The reason to move to our current location was specifically for my healthcare.  20160805_083743As you know we are living in an RV park on the Naval Air Station in Pensacola and now will need to leave for a couple of weeks.  The policy for this park is after 3 months here, you must leave for at least 2 weeks before you can return.

Due to my schedule with chemotherapy, the upcoming holidays and the possibility of an upcoming surgery; Gary and I decided we would stay for 2 months, leave and stay in a nearby RV park for 2 weeks and then come back here at our current location for the following 3 months.

A minor inconvenience for now because Gary and I have become a little complacent.  We have settled into our new living arrangement and lifestyle and we like it very much.  But the reality is we have to move away for a couple of weeks and this is ultimately a good thing.  image2We need to practice our packing and strapping down items; we need to practice hitching the 5th wheel to the truck and we need to practice driving and towing the 5th wheel.

So the temporary move is an opportunity to practice and an opportunity to accept change.  The new temporary location is another military RV park about 10 miles from our current location, just on the Alabama and Florida state border.  The location is still near the hospitals I visit for my health needs and provides many trails for walking.  It is also located on the beach, though I do not consider the view as nice as the current one here in the current location.

These past 2 months, Gary and I have met many wonderful people that we now consider friends here in the RV park.  image3Like us, some of them are staying here long term and also will have to move for the required 2 weeks.  They also plan to make their way to the same RV park as us and it will be nice to know these new friends will be there.

So unlike the moving day of 2 months ago, this is an easy one; no downsizing and much less packing is involved.

  1. That really is a bit of an inconvenience. Weird rules and regulations, but what can you do ! Glad there is a park not too far away, and that you still will be okay with regards to your doctors visits and everything. Hope you are well today 🙂

  2. Stop it! You even seek the positive in the inconvenient. I’ve moved too many times (16 times in the last 19 years and mostly, in fact almost all, not of choice). Moving is hard even when it is a case of hitching up the fifth wheel (i know about these because you educated me and now point them out to my very impressed – honestly – husband, with monotonous regularity) for you the inconvenience is magnified by the treatment you are going through. So all I can say is happy landings and maybe treat this couple of weeks like a holiday – different views, different feel … it might work and I’m sure, given your intrinsically beautiful spirits you will find the silver linings). I send warmth and sunshine (yes, really – its warm and sunny up here in deepest most Autumnal MA) to you and Gary and Little Missie Roxie from me and my Two Brained Bloke and The Bean makes three) X
