Big Announcement!

This is the hardest post I've ever written.  I don't typically write about my feelings and this subject has a lot of feelings involved. *sigh.*  So, here goes.

We're moving.  To Dallas.  I know so many of you have moved away from home.  That this isn't a big deal, but it's a really big deal for me.  I've lived in T-town my entire life.  I went to college here.  And even though I've talked about moving and starting a life in another city, it's very overwhelming to actually do it.  I'm freaking out and a big ball of emotions.  I cry, I'm happy, I try to convince myself that it's all going to be ok even though I don't have a job.  It will be ok.  I know that and I truly believe we're making the right move for us at the right time.  But it doesn't make it any easier.  Does that make sense?

Any ways, I'm hoping to see a lot of people that I take for granted that I'll see whenever.  I'm working on getting my  house on the market and I'm unemployed come after Friday.

I'm SO excited for you and Dave! SO excited! This will be a fabulous thing for you. I will miss you so much.. Just KNOWING you're close is comfort so thinking of you in a different area code is really weird for me. *sigh* But, more reason to visit Dallas! I say we plan a weekend as soon as you get decently settled there! It will be fun! :)

And I just blogged your husband's fitness blog. I'm feeling in shape just reading it.

I'm going to miss your stories at book club, but I suppose with me leaving too, I would have missed them either way.

Good luck. :)

It was a difficult move for us, especially moving to a bigger city. Good luck!

Blaze, you are going to do great and all these fears and anxieties are totally normal. The best thing you can do is realize that and work through them and mourn the things you need to mourn. Then embrace the change and adventure your life is.

Also, you may feel anger and resentment towards your decision when you move and live in Dallas because it's really hard for a while. Everything is new, people you don't know, etc.

I've been through this twice now and I'm always here if you need to talk. <3
