And because I get to talk about whatever tickles my fancy, I am going to talk some more about Washington. I know that WA is where my hubs and I are supposed to be. I know that J felt called to go there. And I know that as soon as we are moved there and I have a job and life is semi normal-ish I will probably LOVE being there. But right now, all I am really thinking about is: rain, scary looking apartment, rain, will our dogs be able to come with us, rain, will I find a job (or two) that pays similar to what I make now, rain, umm....taking a ferry? Scares me a little...don't know why, rain, and how the heck will I not get lost? I get lost in Portland with GPS. I am an amazing navigator by the way. (Um...that might have been a lie.)
I promise you guys (uh gals!) that I am not Debbie Downer, Negative Nelly or any other loser like that. But I think I just need to talk myself into this one. I am STOKED to see and be with my hubs. I would follow him anywhere. Like Alaska. Or Guam (where he actually really wants to go and live). And I know once I am there I will be happy about it. Maybe it's just the anticipation that is getting to me. Or the fact that I have lived in the same valley for all of my 23 years. I think this first move will be the hardest.
Whew....I think I just needed to get that all out. This may or may not be my last post about "moving to WA fears" but at least for now... I promise to do my best to see the glass half full with this one. Man I am being a complainer! SORRY!
On a happier note, Bob "Barker" my chubby wiener dog has gone on several walks since his abscess incident with no limping afterwards. I am thinking he can move on up longer walks! Also, my chetl'u and I have been hiking the last two saturdays. Can I just say how blessed I am to have such an amazing sister-in-law. She is a wonderful mother, wife, and career-woman. She does it all and I strive to be like her when I have my own little chicks.
Um...this is turning into a novel. Thanks for listening, if you made it down this far.
Love to my homies!
