one of the top 5 most stressful things...

apparently moving house has been classified in the top 5 most stressful things that a person can do (alongside death and divorce) so you can imagine how great i'm feeling at the moment at the prosepect of being up-rooted from my comfy pad. but can i just say that right now, my home is spotless! we've had photographers in today to get the house at all it's prettiest angles, so the place is filled with flowers, most especially these pretty lillies.

So, anyone want to recommend a new suburb for me to move to? highlights of the area?

    Hello to the lovely Jodi!

    I know that stress is starting to seep into your world, but even so, are you exited to be moving out?

    Despite your sadness at having to throw out many treasured items (...ahem like those unneccessary shoes), when you pack up you'll probably find all those precious items from your youth, which the clutter of life forced you to forget about. You'll get a fresh start, an excuse to re-arrange your furniture, a new doorbell ring and and new neighbours (who might even bring you cookies!)

    There really is lots to look forward to, and I'm sure God will find you a home (that is, a temporary earthly shelter prior to your residence in Heaven)

    Loved small group today,

    Hi Jodi,

    I don't think you should move to New York because they have some silly laws (this is not to say, however, that the people in New York are silly).

    In New York, you are not allowed to wear slippers after 10pm and you have to buy a license before you hang clothes on a clothes-line. (These laws are from a website on the Internet, so they are obviously true.)

    So if you chose to abide by these laws, your feet would get cold in winter and you would have lots of dirty/wet clothes. Wearing wet clothes might make you sick and wearing dirty clothes might make you smell. In which case, it would be really hard to make new friends (even though you're a really, really likeable person). And I wish neither of these misfortunes upon you.

    So yeah, don't move to New York.

    Ummm... I will, but not yet. You do know who I am, though. But its OK, because this way my posts will be more interesting. I think. For a little while. I'll keep it secret long enough for it to be fun.

    BUT, I will give you a Really Good Clue and tell you that I'm a Ms. Anonymous. Which like, really narrows it down. ;)
