Microblog Monday: Moving Again

We are moving again. Yes, you read that right. We are officially nuts. We only bought our house 9 months ago, and we've already moved four freaking times in the last three years, but we are moving again. Those words almost make me want to vomit. Our poor kids have lived in 5 different houses already and they are only four years old.

As much as neither one of us want to really move right now, we have the opportunity to move back "home." An office has opened up for Tony to take over, which would put us back home. We don't want to go through another move so soon again. We LOVE the kids' preschool, and our twin friends that moved clear across the country last summer are actually moving back! We are doing good here.


We don't have a sense of community here. When we think about our future and where we ultimately want to raise our children, it's back home, where we pretty much know everybody! We have support there, and people we trust to watch our kids. Tony grew up there and I coached softball there for 19 years. We are well known in the community. It will be less lonely. We will be able to go to the local sporting events and support kids we know. We'll have a whole community to help look after our kids. There will be little chance of them running around town causing trouble without us finding out about it. 

As much as we really don't want to move right now, we can't pass up this opportunity. We'd much rather make this move now, before the kids start kindergarten. This is it though. I have made it very clear to Tony that this is it. There will be no more relocating after this if another office opens up somewhere, regardless of the financial benefit. We are both on the same page with this.

Now we need to get this house ready to go back on the market again, and find another house to buy! Our goal is to find a house that will take us into old age, and we won't ever have to move again. Lord help us, I hope this will be a smooth process without too many hiccups along the way. Or I just might lose my mind.

  1. Oh man and you JUST got finished painting! It is nice that you are going back to a community where you have tons of friends and support because that makes a world of difference. When we were deciding on whether we should move to another town instead of doing the renovation ourselves, I didn't want to leave our neighborhood or our street because we have a good community here too. I hope that you are able to quickly sell your house and find a new one.

  2. As always, wishing you all the best!!! I know this is a very positive move but still so sad that it takes you further away from my visits. When not being selfish though, it's going to all be good!!! DO ASK when you have a specific need for help as I will be there as much as I can be. I feel for you doing this again as I know you want to vomit & the thought makes me want to vomit for you & I have only been there for short periods! From your mouth to God's ears that this next home will be your forever home!!! Loads of love & hugs, Aunt D PS: I made it to bed much earlier than you did last night!:) Hope you slept well though!

  3. Wishing you the best of luck with everything involved in this - hope you find your dream house. It will be amazing to settle somewhere you are truly home for good!

  4. Oh, moving sucks! Here’s to it being the last

  5. You've got really good reasons for moving. I hope they help sustain you when you're in the midst of it. At least you're accomplished at it by now? Good luck.
