One-Liner Wednesday — About Moving


If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet.

Blogger and author Rachel Wolchin

I saw this quote last week after we had physically moved from the city to the suburbs and I was feeling somewhat overwhelmed. I was tired to the point of exhaustion at what seemed like the daunting task of turning our new house into our new home and I thought about how nice it would be to be rooted to something permanently.

But I think we are over the hump and things are finally starting to settle down and life is beginning to become normal again. Different, yes, but normal nonetheless.

And I’m happy that I do have feet and not roots.

    Moving is always stressful, but isn’t it nice to be in new digs and surroundings?

      Yes, but the change of venue will take some getting bused to.

      Thanks. Once everything is settled, I’m sure we will. Especially once the window treatments arrive. 😏

    Your one liner made me laugh and think about all the times I have moved. Good luck in your new home

      Thanks. It’s been great, especially now that, thanks to the pandemic, I’m spending a lot of time in my new home!
