We’re Moving




No, really.

I swear it.

This time it is really happening.

We are really moving.

I know . . . many of you have politely followed along as we’ve bounced back and forth 7,538 times between, “I think we’re moving,.” and “No, now we’re staying,” over the past three years so why should you believe me now?

Because it’s true.

And I have an email to prove it . . . an email to my husband’s employer’s HR Department . . . an email containing a start date.

A May start date to be exact.

Except only my husband is moving in May.

The children and I aren’t planning on exchanging an Alaskan summer for a Californian one this year.

Plus I have an Airstream in my driveway that isn’t due to head south with its owners until August.

Thank G-d.

That gives me time to get organized . . . and spend an appropriate amount of time panicking . . . and find someone to live in our house . . . and figure out what to do with the hamster . . . and decide what we will actually take with us . . . and move everything else to storage . . . and get the dogs crate trained . . . and manage the other 3,425 things that will need to be done in order to go live somewhere else for “1-2 years” as the email so nicely stated.


We are really moving.

Unless something changes . . .


P.S. Who says paragraphs have to contain more than one sentence . . . or one word for that matter?

    For real? That changes direction for all sorts of plans, doesn’t it?

    Oh, and don’t let the Airstream stop you from joining up with Daddy.

      Oh I think we need the summer to get organized anyway. Besides G’s best buddy is out of town until mid-July and I’d hate for them not to get to hang out together this summer. Plus we have to help with the new baby!
