As some of you may know, Mike’s Mom is moving back to Louisiana after being here for 8 years. I think it’ll be a tough move for her, as when she moved here she had Ray (father in law, who passed away a few years ago). But she bought a house in the same town as her Daughter’s family, so that will help.
Where does that leave us? Here with us and some friends (all single, with no kids). Most of my friends have kids and stuff, but the ones we see more often do not. We’ve kicked around the idea of moving. First it was Colorado, but Mike said that’s too cold for him, although we’d be close to my family.
We’ve talked about different places in Louisiana, and we are considering moving next summer. It’s scary to think of moving after being here 7 years. When I moved here, I was newly single after a divorce, not knowing a single person. I had arranged a place to live, utilities and everything to be ready (sight unseen) before I even got here. Now, 7 years later, we’ve lived in 8 houses (buying the last one), had over 15 different cars (holy heck), married 6.5 years, three jobs, 3 years of school, and of course 3 boys. WOW! What a difference years make!
It’s scary to think of moving, starting all over. New home, new schools, new jobs and all. Think of us while we make these decisions.
