Hmm - combo of hubby out of work and kids all prepping to get on their own, kind of feels like a transition in the making. I can feel my deeper roots pulling up, the edges of my routine becoming just a wee, teensy bit blurry. We'd thought of downsizing our home in about five years, perhaps it will simply be moved up the timeline a bit.

Started fixing up my church library to slowly get it up to snuff for eventual handoff, also re-painting the church parking lot for maybe my last time as I only re-do it every 3-4 years.

Having a garage sale in July too, which is a good start in that whole process. Sort of like drawing a comb over my household to get out the tangles, amazing the things I have and don't need anymore (or never really needed in the first place). I'll probably be maundering about that here from time to time over the next couple years. If I must move, a slow and gentle drifting from the dock and an amble down the river is always preferred to a tsunami.

It sounds like you have a healthy perspective on it all at least!

I've been through the tsunami, and I wish it on no one! May your transition be smooth and gentle.

We've found what I think will be a good church, non-denominational full gospel, and mostly young. It seems promising at least. I will miss my home church family, I'd been with them for almost 38 years... and the street folks I'd come to know and love, and the studio. But it is my hope that we can find somewhere to rent that is a kind of store-front with living space in back or upstairs. Then I could set up a studio in front and make it a welcoming place for the poor. But for now at least we have an RV park space we can afford and that allows older RVs in. (it's a seniors-only park).

It isn't any noisier here than when we lived next to the barn at Anawim, we heard dogs barking, people yelling, traffic on Glisan, sirens, and jets. Subtract the people yelling, some dogs, and the jets, and that's what it's like here. The view is way better, though :D

Seniors only parks are usually more lenient toward having older RVs in the park. Most other parks exclude any RV more than 12 years old... it's an age-old kind of discrimination to keep out the "wrong kind" of people. Some parks not only restrict the age of an RV but also the require applicants to have a certain level of personal income. Which pretty much excludes the poor who aren't able to rent a house or apartment.

We moved to Coos Bay. I'm hoping to be able to find something to rent that we can afford.
