It’s Friday and time to link up with Lisa Jo for Five Minute Friday. This week I am participating not only because I love doing it every week, but also because I hope to bring a little “normal” back into my day. I’ve missed writing this week and look forward to when I can post again more regularly. If you would like to join the Friday writing fun, check out the details here.
Well, the first part of our big move is behind us. Since Tuesday we’ve packed a moving truck, drove 650 miles, and unpacked our belongings into a storage unit. As my son and I followed the man in the big yellow truck (my husband) into the state we will now call home it didn’t feel real. Both of us would comment how it’s hard to imagine calling any state other than North Carolina, home. It still feels like we are simply on vacation (albeit a tiring vacation) visiting family.
Yesterday afternoon, we took some time to ride around and look at some potential neighborhoods to live in. Since moving here to start a new job last month, my husband has been scoping out potential houses to buy. After driving by a few of the options, the three of us attempted to imagine what our next home should be like. Should it have a big yard or a little yard? Do we want a basement? Do we want a neighborhood with sidewalks or no sidewalks? Should we live in this school district or another school district?
Over dinner I jokingly told my husband that maybe we should pick a house the same way I picked a town to live in 13 years ago. Maybe if the street the house is on has a pretty sounding name we should snag it! It worked out one time for me…maybe it would work again. 🙂 You can read about that adventure here.
