We are NOT Moving! At least not right now.
You know how you have those conversations in your head, and you figure something out, but then you forget to tell the people involved that you made some changes….and they have no idea what is going on? Well, I think I kind of did that. And not just with you! …With my husband too!
We were having dinner with some friends and they asked;
“So, are you guys still moving?”
and my husband looked at me and said;
“I don’t know, are we?”
and I said….
“Oh, I forgot to tell you!
….I think not!”
Nothing has changed about the reasons WHY we were thinking of moving. Kids are still going to college, the house is STILL too much for me many days and I STILL need to be closer to civilization…but what I realized….. well I realized a few things:.
1. We got many things done to the house which have removed the daily headaches, holes in plaster and crumbling walls…basically the house is nicer to live in…why should I not enjoy that for a while longer, right?
2. I realized that while Tate is heading off to college next year, Phoebe and Cooper will still be here. Tate and Cooper share a room, so really, the bedroom situation will be the same. So we would still need at least a 3 bedroom house. And while I would like a Newer house…I am just not wanting to give up ALL OF THIS for that. not yet anyway.
3. After Phoebe leaves, Cooper still has 3 years of high school. And AFTER he graduates I not only am not sure if I want to stay in this house, but I also am not sure I want to stay in this town. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE where I live. It is the best place to raise kids in the world. But I am not sure it will be the best place for us, after the kids are gone. I may want to be closer to stuff to do, and maybe Back in a city.
and the bottom line is, if absolutely positively, IF I have any control over it, do not want to move twice in 4 years and that is quite possibly what we would end up doing.
SO for now anyway, we are VERY HAPPILY staying PUT!!!
I feel like I should have a party or something!!
Have you ever been in a “should I stay or should I go situation?”
