It's September... Last year, this time, we found out we were leaving for Australia in 10 days. Guess what?! There must be something in the air this time of year because I have an announcement this year, too. Here goes...
We are moving to Hartford, CT. Only this time the move is permanent -- Ian is accepting at job in CT.
Ironically, I think Ian's move date will be almost identical to our move date for Australia. The kids and I may move with him mid-October, or we may stay here in Atlanta until after Halloween.
Once again, my friend the Magic 8 Ball has predicted the outcome before we were sure what was going to happen. I must say that the Magic 8 Ball is a little creepy in its veracity and consistency.
How do I feel? Excited. Nervous. Overwhelmed. Sad.
The kids know. Ben is sad to be leaving his friends and excited to be near grandparents, the ocean, and skiing. Nik is Nik. He only cares about having a real Halloween this year.
It has been pretty stressful to be in limbo since July... now I can kick into gear. I'm not so good with uncertainty... I shine when I have a huge task and a tight deadline. Today I am making a list of what needs to be done in each room to put the house on the market and figuring out how many boxes I need to pack up our miscellanea so the house will show well. I am also making a list of possible schools and towns so I can start researching where we will live. And starting to look for a gym for Ben. Phew.
