That is the question. Ok not really, that WAS the question, back when school started and I first thought to post about our moving dilemma. But whereas last years marker was tired, this year’s marker is busy. Even though this whole kid thing seems to be getting easier in one regard, it’s getting crazy hectic in another. Our schedules are whacked and the kids aren’t even involved in a million thing yet (not that I’ll sanction a million, but I’m sure they’ll be some). But back to the point.
We’re moving, at least we are planning and hoping and praying to. We’ve got our condo up for rent and have been showing it for the last few weeks. As soon as that’s taken care of, off to Lake Nona we’ll go. It should be a good move, we both feel it’s the right move, being that close to work will make family time more of a reality again. That’s the reason, and I have to keep reminding myself of, ’cause I really don’t want to move.
I mean I do want to, I want my time back, I want to see my kids more, I want to see my husband more, and I want to stop commuting to work and back. But really I’d rather move work to me. I love my home and I love the area we live in. The more we think, talk and act toward moving to the ‘burbs, the more I realize I am city girl, through and through. I like crazy, noisy, hectic, congested living. I actually enjoy the fact that our neighbors blare their spanish music so loud it’s like I’m listening to it myself when I’m in my backyard. They’ve got good taste, Shakira one song Linkin Park the next, I mean what are the odds? That just rocks. I enjoy having every type of shopping I may need in a 2 mi radius of my home. We have not just one, but two good, cheap, fresh produce markets within 1 mi, and a dance studio right up the street! There are five parks within a 10 minute drive and one within walking distance. I love our simple, little place. I love how easy it makes keeping track of my little destroyers. I love how easy it is to clean. I love the low electric bills. I love how it keeps our junk, I mean stuff, to a minimum. I love just about everything about it. So I’ve been mourning our home since we made the decision.
But once we move, mourning will be over. I’m sure I’ll have my moments, but I’m also sure I can and will find things to love about our new place. It just doesn’t exist yet. I actually do like change, I just like for it to happen as soon as the decision has been made. I’m not a big fan of the in between time. Decide, then do. That’s what I like. I don’t have the patience for much limbo.
We had more potential renters come by yesterday, and boy were they some of the eagerest people I’d ever met. They literally walked in the door and said we’ll take it, I’m still not sure I believe them. It seems to easy. But if they do check out, I may just get my wish, no between time. Is it possible to plan and execute a move from start to finish in two weeks time? I may just find out.
