I'm Moving!!

I finally got up the courage to tell my mom and my brother what I wanted to do (thanks to a few kind friends who gave me great encouragement). My mom freaked at first, but is doing much better now. My brother was totally supportive, which helped to calm my mom down. Anyway, I'll be moving in June! Only five months. I'm so excited. Bradley is ok with changing schools and is glad he can finish up the year here. I'm glad too. I want to make the transition as smooth as possible. I told dh to look for a bigger place for us and get ready! :) I feel like a huge weight has been lifted! I'm so happy!

Well, I do have a little stitching to share. I worked on P&P again last night. I got some more of the words finished...



Well, not much else going on here! Just had to share my news! Thank you to everyone for your very kind words. I couldn't have done it without your support! :)

  1. YAY! From the tone of your last few posts, we could tell that returning to FL wasn't an easy thing to do.

    Here's wishing you an easy move and a smooth transition as you pack up your house and organize the kids. And happy house-hunting! You're going to love Charleston.

  6. That's wonderful! I know you were struggling with all the different issues involved, but I do think you made the right decision. Your extended family will miss you, but it's not like you're moving to the moon. Your immediate family is the most important part of the decision and I think you're absolutely doing what's right for them.

  8. I'm glad that you got the courage to do what is in YOUR heart to do Nicole. It is so important not to live our lives for other people, per se, but to do what is in our own hearts with our own lives; be genuine, be true to yourself. I am confident that you will be happy. Congratulations.

  18. I could tell from your posts you hated to leave Charleston!

    My family and I were separated for 4 mos when I got my promotion to Arkansas. We were going to be separated 6 mos, but my DH, missed my middle son and I too much and pushed it up..separation is no fun, but in your case 5 mos is better than a few years

    Congrats! I am very happy and I can tell from your post today you are much happier already!

  23. I'm glad you are going back to Charleston permanently. You seemed so happy there. Moving is always stressful, but you have to keep the vision in your mind about what your life will look like in October -- the kids in school, the boxes (mostly) unpacked and your family together!
