The Moving Issue

A few days ago I mentioned a little bit about us moving out of the state. I didn't realise that so many people were not aware of this plan, including apparently some family members.....oopsie.

Yes, that is the plan. We are going to leave Florida and head slightly North once we bring the baby home. Since this wait was supposedly going to be a whole lot shorter than it is we thought by now we would have her and be ready to start making concrete plans. We are going to move to Georgia. Where? I have not got the foggiest clue other than it won't be too far away from Atlanta as hubby has to commute to the Airport for work. We have done some preliminary scoping out and looked via the net at a few houses and have decided that we are a goner. Miami is fine but it is not where we want to raise our girls. England is another option but that is a move we are not ready to make quite yet but it is not out of the question either for later on down the road.

BUT, since we are not even close to referral let alone finishing the adoption, right now we are stuck in a holding pattern. When we bought this house 18 months ago we knew it was a temporary stay for us. Jacob and I have moved 13 times in 20 yrs and even though I don't think my mother ever truly believed me, NO, we are not in the witness protection plan. I can pack up a house and be ready to go in less than a week . I have done it so many times. So this is home for now but hopefully soon I will be pulling out the packing tape and heading somewhere new. But that will be it for a while....I'd kind of like to know what it is like to stay put for more than 3 yrs.
Right, we are out of here again for a few days. We are heading up to Orlando to meet back up with my cousin and family and then if all goes to plan we are going to meet Dannye and Ray from Ladyfrog for dinner on Saturday.
See you on the flipside.

Ooohhh...have fun while away.

You go right ahead and move on up to Atlanta. Easier for me to make an excuse to drive south that way ;0) Atlanta I can do in a day!

There...that's my selfish .02

The move sounds exciting!

I hope you have a great visit this weekend.

Well, my selfish .02 says that this news sucks wind. Say it ain't so!!!!!

Kris said...

So wish I could meet up with you guys, as I'm 2 hours north of Orlando in Gainesville! Good luck with the move when the time comes and have a wonderful time this weekend!

Wow...good for you. I can't stand moving. I hope you get a game plan in play.

Enjoy Orlando!

Dannye said...

We are thinking of doing the 6 mo. on and off to Florida (naples) & Acworth, GA. It's a beautiful area and you sure can get a whole lot of house for the $ as opposed to here, but I am and always will be a Fla. girl. My heart has always been here. I love your attitude to pick up and try something new, very savy!

Have fun this weekend!

Nikki said...

The move sounds exciting (especially to someone who has lived in MI her entire life!)

Have fun in Orlando and give Dannye a big hug from all of us.

See you when you return.

Emmie said...

I didn't know you were moving! WOW! I've never had to move before and don't know if I would totally love it but it sounds as if you're pretty excited! Hope you get everything figured out...good luck! Keep us updated!

Ann said...

You aren't supposed to move that far into Georgia. You're supposed to move to southern Georgia so that you'd only be about 45 minutes from us. Didn't I tell you that?

Oh and about not telling some family members...major ooops!!! But ohhh so funny!!

Kathy and Joel said...

Have fun!!! When you said you were moving Northwards, my Canadian brain got all excited. I guess we won't be neighbors...LOL

I'm so far from all of you southerners. It would be so neat to have a mini get together-but we're all so disperse.

Steffie B. said...

What fun! Tell Dannye hello....we'll want pictures! ;)

Roy and Lori said...

Best of Luck with your moving plans!
I hope everything works out well for you guys!

Take Care,
Roy and Lori
