Another Day Another Dollar

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Tuesday and I am currently in Jacksonville, Florida moving out of my old place, seeing doctors and getting things wrapped up for the last part of my move to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

It is cold here again this morning and it is going to be a busy day. I know I am missing the warmth of South Florida and quickly reminded of one of the reasons I will be glad to leave north Florida. It is in the 40s this morning and the cold weather really bothers my breathing and my neuropathy.

The carpet installation people will be coming today to put down the new carpeting in the apartment I am moving out of this trip. I also have a ton of packing and cleaning to get done this week. The rest of the week I have doctor appointments so I need to get as much done today as I can.

I also have a dentist appointment today so at least I will get to see Carol one last time. I met Carol when I moved here from California and she has been a great friend and dentist. She was the first dentist I could find in Jacksonville who truly did not mind treating someone with HIV and AIDS. She calls herself my big sister and she has also been a great supporter of Dab the AIDS Bear Project. So it will be sad to say goodbye to her.

It is strange being back in the old place especially with some of the items already being packed up. It is like still living here but not really. I guess it is hard to explain. But the best way I guess is to stay it feels like I have already left. It is the final ending of one part of my life which is sad. I have really enjoyed living in Jacksonville for the past ten years. I have been in two relationships while living here. And leaving this apartment is the final closure on ending the last one. So far we have been able to stay on a friendly speaking basis but we still have to finish some financial business which I hope goes well so we can continue to stay friends.

The relationship before this one did not end well and we no longer speak to each other. He screwed me out of anything he could and I just hope it does not happen again. I tend to be too nice during break ups and usually get burnt in the process. So keep your fingers crossed for me. I would hate for another one to end where we do not even speak to each other after spending four years together.

I also have a ton of calls and errands to get done like turning off the utilities, scheduling mail forwarding and the like. I honestly hate this part of the moving process since so much is out of my control such as when I can pick up the moving van, the utility companies dragging their butt etc.

I hope you are having a great and safe week so far. Drop me a line and let me know.

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope and happiness.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
