I did it. I took the first big step. I have put applications in another town. I am now waiting to hopefully hear something back. I am scared. I am excited and I am extremely nervous. I can’t believe we are doing this. We are really going to try to move and start our next chapter out side of the city. We have chosen to go with the country life near family.
Which if you know me, you know it wasn’t an easy choice. I crave the forest and adventure, I also want land and family. I can’t have both so it has been a long road to this decision. I am happy with our choice for now. In 5 years we will reevaluate if we are happy where we are or if we want to leave state and try somewhere new.
I am hopeful that I will be able to get a job with in the next month. It would be amazing to start the house hunting process come spring break. and have something locked in by the end of the school year. That way we can start moving right away.
I can’t believe in 3-6 months we could be living somewhere else. We could be kicking off the summer in a new house. We could be doing all the things. It is so much stuff! I just can’t believe how much we will be doing in just a matter of a month or so. I still need to get the interviews and then the contract. Here we are. Waiting for the next step.
I am so excited, and scared! I can imagine living in the country again. I want the big garden and the quiet yard. I want the stars and quiet. I want to grow our food and explore the mountains. I want to fish and camp and spend my free time outside. I want four seasons and county fairs. I want the country life. I want my kids to just enjoy being kids.
