Goodbye Projects

Guess what? I am moving!  Moving! After 12 years in NYC public housing a/k/a Da Projects, I am finally moving out.  Now it's not into anything fancy or even into my own house, but I feel like I am stepping back into the real world.  Now there are a few things I will miss, like cheap rent and not paying for gas & electric, but I need to make this change.  My youngest has always lived here and my son doesnt remember living anyplace since we moved here when he was 3.  It is time for them to know different things and experience new things. 

The area isnt far from where I am now but it is busier.  There are more people because it is near a major shopping area/transportation hub.  I like that the kids will learn how to travel for real now since they will have to take 2 buses to get to their schools, since neither of them wants to transfer away from their friends.  It is time for them to grow up and for Mommy to loosen the apron strings j u s t  a  little bit!

The move-in date should be June 1st, officially, but we signed the lease for May15th.  You know I have to get in there and do my cleaning and some painting, and light my candles and say my prayers for blessings in the new space.  That is a MUST!!!  I need to go to the botanica and get a candle and some Florida water.  Who knows about that, huh?

Anyway, so I just wanted to let you all know what is going on.  Well whomever still reads my blog!  LOL

Have a blessed day!
