Moving At 49…..Ugh….

This past Wednesday I was supposed to move, but it had to be postponed for 24 hrs due to a nasty cut my son got an hour before we were to pick up moving truck. Next day when we arrived at our storage I accidentally slammed my trunk onto my car keys, rendering them useless, move that should have took six hours, took over TWELVE!

 I’ll have no internet for a week which is fine, but hands down this was the worst move ever in my life. Top it off with a homeless old kitty cat that i fell in love with and intended to bring home and rescue has disappeared….. 



About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.

  3. Oh, so sorry about your son’s cut and also, moving. I hate moving and joke with my kids, “You can move me from this little one bedroom apartment into the nursing home or even better, into the ground.” This just means that I have pared down my belongings and have the ‘very best’ or special things I wish to surround myself with. I can use in future, money to travel and if I ever meet a man to fall in love with, he can move my stuff! ha ha! Hugs for you and your family, Clarissa.


  4. Sorry your move was so rough.
