Tomorrow, the charity truck is coming to take my previous offices away. It's been a hectic few weeks with my selling buckets of stuff on Craigslist, but tomorrow, all but the chiropractic tables and colonic machine are out of here.
I was doing fine until the baby changing table was sold.
I remember when we bought it at IKEA... how wonderful we thought the changing table would be, different than at most medical offices.
I mean, we did make the place more colorful than words can describe, what with being IKEA and all. I loved our concept. While my sister-in-law is hoping to bring the idea back to life in a year or so, Ama Mama as we knew it has gone.
This was my midwifery office. Donna, my apprentice, bought the tie-dye couch, so I can go visit it whenever I need to. Thanks, Donna!
So many thoughts tonight, but I don't want to seem morose, either. It is a new beginning for me and that is a great thing. I will have much more time to devote to my midwifery practice now that I don't have to market for all the practitioners and the office in general. Donna and I are seeing this as a great time of change and growth.
As in birth, every ending (single life/couple life/unlimited freedom/self-focused behaviors) has a new beginning (a new baby/a new family/new joys/new challenges).
Good thing I am a midwife, what with all these birth analogies and all.
