Big news! We're moving this week! I just thought I'd announce it on this blog, just on the small chance that there is anyone who cares about us who still reads this blog, but isn't connected on other social media or in real life. (Anyone?!) ;)
We aren't moving very far. The new house is about 1.8 miles away. But, this quote has something to do with why we've decided to move. Over the 12 years we've lived here, there are many things we've wanted to change. We've thought seriously about moving at least twice. And dreamed about it for different reasons for years and years. And we finally decided that while there are some things that we aren't willing to change (like Zac's job), there are still some things that we can (like a house).
So when we realized the timing was right, with our home market value, and finding another house we liked etc, we just jumped on it. The whole process, from the time we found the house and suddenly decided to try to move, until the time we will be in our new house, has been less than 8 weeks!!! It all feels just slightly crazy.
I'd like to write more about my thoughts and reasoning on all of this, but I'm typing this one-fingered on my phone and it's extremely tiring. And my laptop keyboard is breaking and obnoxious to use. So. Anyway.
You are not a tree.
I fully realize this quote is addressing much more than actual physical location, but the truth still applies. You can change. You can move. You can.
And so can I. (Even with chronic pain).
Wish us luck this next week as we finish packing and cleaning, load and unload, and get settled and get a fresh start! Wohoo!
