What's happening

So, it's refreshing that I can finally come clean with what's been happening in our neck of the woods lately. 

We did a lot of soul searching, family discussions, etc. and came to the conclusion that moving to Massachusetts is what is best for our family.  I am beyond terrified yet excited at the idea.  My children are now going to have their grandmother within arm's reach and they will have what I never did....grandparents just around the corner. 
So, where are we now?  Aunt JCC got a job today (yes, she's coming too...I would never leave her behind.  She's my favorite person and I won't leave her behind), Josh has a prospect and I may actually have a job working at the same place as Aunt JCC.  She's going to be a preschool teaching assistant and I spoke with her new boss today and it looks like she wants to meet with me as well. 
We will pack up our South Carolina lives at the beginning of September and head up to Yankee land.  This may turn out to be a complete disaster but we are at least trying. 
I've been a little quiet lately and trying to keep this information close to the vest because, quite frankly, I didn't want anybody at work to know it because I just don't want to hear it.  This is our decision and nobody can judge what we think is best for us!
I'm thinking it might be interesting to blog about moving three adults, a baby, two dogs and two cats almost 1,000 miles from one end of the East Coast to another.  What do y'all think?
In totally unrelated news, Gamecock football begins in 6 days.  6 days people!!!!  College Football Season is the most wonderful time of the year!  Gooooooooooo Gamecocks!!!!

  2. I am so excited for you guys, but I'm still a little sad too. You know it's cold up there, right? Haha! I admire you guys for giving this a chance. I know you'll love being close to your mom and that your kids will get to really know her. What part of Massachusetts will you be living in? Maybe we'll come meet you in Boston one of these days...I've always wanted to go there. :-)
