...Is finally moving

So it's official.  After four and half years in Memphis we are finally packing our bags and heading west.  The movers come in one week and then it's adios to Bluff City. 

I have some seriously mixed feelings here.  On one side of the coin, I am ready to co-habitate with my husband again.  Living apart for the past four months has made me realize that I still like the guy.  Plus, I didn't sign up to be a single parent.  Major kudos to those who do it full time without a light at the end of the tunnel.

Despite my excitement toward a warm body on the other side of the bed, I am going to miss Memphis.  Well, not so much Memphis as the people here.  I have met some really terrific folks and I am sad that I won't see their faces on a regular basis.  I will not miss the hour long commute (both ways), the crazy drivers, and high crime rate. 

I should be used to this since we have moved every few years since 2002, but it doesn't really get any easier.  Maybe this time we'll stick around for a while.  I hope so, or I'll have to change my blog title!
