This is it ....

September 26th, 2007 at 01:09 pm

Next time I blog it will be from our new home ... 2,400 miles away from where we are now! For those of you who are new here, we are moving from the Seattle area to Texas because the cost of living (and especially the cost of houses) is substantially less expensive. In Texas, we chose Austin because it is beautiful and offers a high quality of life. This is also a chance for us to have a "grand adventure" and try living someplace completely new & different.

We leave this weekend. I have family coming in to town tomorrow, and we still have the farewell party, the last rush of packing (it's going well tho), a run to the dump, and final cleaning up of the house to do, so I won't be back on-line until the computer is set up in our new digs.

I am happy to report that the marriage is still intact. Smile Those of you who have done cross-country moves will know what I'm talking about! Only once did the thought, "You go right ahead and move to Texas, and the dog & I will just stay here" cross my mind, and I managed to bite my tongue and just waited for it to pass. If DH has had the same thought (and no doubt he has), he has also kept it to himself.

Thanks for letting me share this big change with all of you. I'm excited to start reporting on life in our new town!
See you all in a week or so (maybe a bit more).

    Congrats on the move to Texas! It's a great state. I like Austin okay but wouldn't live there. I like the east Texas area too much to live there but my oldest son lives there and loves it. He's a student at UT and really enjoys Austin. My youngest son doesn't live there but wants to and might some day.

    Good luck on your move and let me know how you like Austin. Smile

    If I had to live in TX, that is one of two towns I might choose. Wow, what a change, though---Seattle to Austin!

    Austin is an awesome city. You will love it there. I graduated from UT in 1986 and we visit several times a year. There is a ton of cultural stuff that goes around campus and the city in general. Enjoy!

    Good luck in Austin. The final final test, of course, will be the physical move itself - but I know you'll handle it well.
