Moving thoughts, Vegan MOFO, Jorda the amazing PItbull

I am moving to Boston on Saturday.. and wow.. everything in my life is changing.

I am selling my car!

What an amazing lifestyle change that will be!.... but I am doing it to create a lifestyle that is more active... and frankly.. having a car in the heart of Boston sounds like more of a pain that it's worth.

My car, my Toyota Yaris is actually the first brand new car I have ever had.. and one that I bought myself after my divorce.    I thought I'd be driving it into the ground!.. but life has other plans!

Boston!.. here I come! I still can't believe this is the view outside of my bedroom window...  It is a total 180 from my view today: 

I think the thing that is the hardest about this move is leaving my dog, Jorda with my X-husband.  

Jorda LOVE Mark (my X) sooo much and we have shared custody of her for the last 4 years... she is 6 years old...  We adopted her when she was 3 months old... 

.. and look at my KIDS too.. they were babies.. now they are in college and out of the house.... and this pic was taken with a disposable film camera and scanned!  

Soo.. I am very sad that my dog can't move with me to Boston.... but am very grateful she will be pampered and very well taken care of by my X husband... and that I will get to spend every other weekend with her. 

I am going to be busy and incorporating my new life.. and can't wait to start blogging for VeganMOFO!.

I have a lot of ideas I'm throwing around in my my head to blog about... and am looking forward to the community feeling again...   

I can't wait to blog from Boston all about Vegan Food!.. and once a week I am going to do a restaurant review.. and I will be 100% honest .. and I am a harsh critic. 


  1. AWWW! That is sad. I know how hard it can be to leave a non-human animal friend behind. I am sorry but at least you know he will still have love. :)

  2. Well at least you won't be in the city worried sick about who what where she is as you know she'll be loved and safe. You'll still miss her like heck though I know! It's like she knows (must be all the packing etc) as she is giving the puppy eyes in this picture. Hope the move goes smoothly.

  3. I am so jealous...I love Boston! You are right--it would be more of a hindrance than a help to have a car in Boston. Your view from your new apt is amazing!

    And I am so glad to hear you will be doing MoFo--yay! I will look forward to your posts :-)

    Good luck with the move! Moving is so stressful and hard. And I know you will miss your dog. I hope your ex takes excellent care of her!


  4. Aw, that's so tough, but at least you'll see her regularly and you'll know she'll be happy and loved.

    Hope your move goes smoothly. How exciting! And, I'm really looking forward to your Mofo posts and food reviews from Boston.

  5. Leaving Jorda has got to be the hardest thing — but as you pointed out, you'll still get to see her. I'm excited for you. You seem very positive about the move, and I hope your dreams come true!

  6. Good look with your move, Melody. Looking forward to reading your Boston restaurant reviews. I like your honest style; please keep it up.

  7. I meant good LUCK, sorry!!

  8. That's sad! I would be heart broken.
