This will be my last week with you probably – and that may be erratic at best – as the big move is scheduled to happen in 8 days. Where we are moving our internet provider options are a bit slim so that hasn’t even been arranged yet. I am feeling withdrawal symptoms already! Then, once we have internet, I will have to get my system set up again providing old Moo (I name all of my toys) is still in the land of the living; she’s been coughing and sputtering again…sigh.
There is Christmas shopping and shipping needing to be done for friends and family but there isn’t anything on my list other than sanity and calm at the moment. Well there is this one Tamron lens but let me get back on track… Whose bright idea was it to move into a new home right in the midst of Christmas season anyway? Oh wait! Never mind. We’ll let that one go 😉 The past few days have seen a bit of an increase in my mobility for which I am very thankful but the specialist appointment is next week and that adds to the already big pile of anxiety inducing elements. Are we having fun yet?
As I have been told many times, this too shall pass and in the meantime I should not let these “other” bits rob and blind me of being and experiencing in the moment. The move will happen, I will misplace things, the computer will get set up again and either work or be replaced (ugh) and I will do my best to suppress the urge to choke DH when he tells me to relax. I couldn’t do that if I wanted to anyway my hands are too small to fit around his neck. I kid! I kid!
The grands will get their presents in time for Christmas – the toys they make for kids today are just really “interesting” but I wouldn’t mind having a BB-8 Droid as a present – and I will get better health wise and be back out there photographing with gusto. Which leads us into the real topic of this post. It’s that time of the year when we start wondering what to get one another for the holidays. Please allow me to make a few suggestions.
I have two stores that feature my photography. One, my Etsy shop (see the big E on the right side of my page), is where my prints are offered for sale in multiple sizes. These prints I self fulfill and at the moment I am only able to ship just in the United States. My other store, Zazzle, offers many other items featuring my photography. These items, many that can be customized to fit your needs, include mugs, tote bags, blankets, pillows, posters and more. This store ships worldwide and runs many great sales that change weekly. Here are a few examples of what you will find at my Zazzle shop:

I hope you take a moment to browse both of my shops and please feel free to share the links as well. Thank you for indulging me with this “commercial” and we now return you to our regularly scheduled program 🙂
Thank you for having the “commercial break”! I just ordered a coffee mug from you! Please be safe on your move, and please don’t end back up in rehab! :^)
I’m trying to get out of PT and who knows what the specialist might decide! Now I’ve got that song in my head….they tried to make me go to rehab 😉 And thank you for ordering. I hope you enjoy it. Hugs to you.
You have some nice items, Terry. It’s cool seeing them all produced like this.
Thank you 🙂
You and I are on the same track. We are moving in December but don’t have an exact close date yet. We think it will be between December 4-9th. I’ve been busy packing and getting readying haven’t had much time to get out and shoot. Good luck with your move and getting everything set up again.
We’re supposed to close next Monday! Good luck with your move too. Crazy isn’t it?
Where in Maryland are you moving to 🙂
Sorry! Still staying here in Ohio 🙂
Good luck with the moving!
Thank you 🙂
Good luck and Happy Holidays! May your life in your new home be filled with love and much happiness!
If we don’t go nutz first LOL Thank you 🙂
You won’t…heading into a new adventure can be stressful, but very rewarding.
Best with all of your endeavors. I’ll anticipate your return.
Must balance my time productively with all that’s going on…and to not hurt myself more 🙂 Anxious to get clicking again.
Time will tell you when your ready again.
I have moved and to do it during the Christmas season… whoa!
Good Luck and know we are all thinking of you.
I like the items in your storefronts!
You will be missed, but just (dare I say it?) RELAX…
I’m surprised you’ve kept the blog going as long as you have, Teri. Good luck with the move, See you on the other side! 🙂
Popping back in for a moment as there is a lull in the storm 🙂
Congratulations on the move! Way to start the new year huh 🙂
