Did I Say 'Exciting'??

Did I say this whole moving thing was "exciting"?
What was I thinking?

 This whole change thing....is FRIGHTENING!!
We've run the gamut from excited.
To nauseous.
To sad.
To excited! 
What the heck are we DOING?
In the words of Birdie Conrad (You've Got Mail),
We're daring to imagine that we can have a different life!

So it's time to get down to business!

 Quite the daunting task ahead!
Packing up!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably already
know what our decision is!

  
Yep! 
Texas!
We're going back to Dallas!
It's where we met. 
Where we started.
Where there is NOT 6 months of winter!
I advised the office yesterday,
and we're trying to see if it will be feasible for me to work remote
from home down there.
I'm all for giving that a try!  Though I'm not sure if it will
all come together.  I'm hopeful.  
Keep your fingers crossed!
If it doesn't work out, then it's not meant to be and there's
something else waiting for me in the Big D!

I've got six weeks to pack up 21 years!
There WILL be a thinning of sorts taking place around here!

For my sanity, 
I will still be squeezing in creative endeavors while packing and readying
for the move!

I've been doing at least two long rows on my
WearWithAll Stole every day.


Thank goodness for knitting.  It calms my nerves and settles the mind
when I start overthinking our decision and wondering
WHAT THE HECK WE ARE DOING??
Change is HARD.  It's SCARY.
And it is a bit exciting too!

*Peace!

wow kim that is a BIG change in your life - but I'm sure TX will be like going home. I'm sure winters do get hard if you didn't grow up that way. I'll be wishing you all the best with your job and the moving plans. Mel

OMG I'm so with you. We are in the "under a month" moment of our move to CT and I was really feeling scared about it this weekend.
I'm wish you all the best on your move "back home".

Ohhh, I know how you feel - we moved from Victoria all the way to the middle of Canada and did it by ourselves and also did a 50th wedding anniversary party for my parents in between - it was a ton of work and driving through the rocky mountains with the biggest uhaul with a flatbed trailer on the back was crazy, but we were so glad when it was done and we were where we belonged - in a lovely village on the prairies. Best of luck to you and keep us updated as to what is happening - LOVE the knitting posts Paula

Hi Kim!
Tom and I made a seriously huge move last October. Sold the house and moved to the other side of the world, lol, well, just near Milwaukee, but from MN it feels like a world away. The entire process was gut wrenching, so I can tell you I understand how you felt while you were packing and prepping for your move back to TX. Tom is retired now and enjoying his new way of life. I hope you are pleased with your move back and life moves on with much joy. Congrats on making that big decision and packing those boxes. I had two moving sales before the final pack. Downsizing is really really hard work!
