I'm Moving!!!

I'm moving! And I'm moving very soon! I'm gonna try and make a long story short because I've got A LOT to do.

So, here's the background. John and I have been together for 10 years but we've never really lived together for very long. He's a pilot. And he's in the Air National Guard at Tyndall. So, he's never in one place for very long. While he goes all over the world I've been using Destin, Florida as my "home base." But now it looks like he'll be at Tyndall for a while (he's already been there for a year). And Tyndall is 1 1/2 hours away from Destin. Oh....and did I mention that my fabric is kept in a rental property 1/2 hour away....in the opposite direction! I spend way too much time in the car! It feels like I've been driving all over the Florida panhandle for the last year.

About two weeks ago I decided that this is getting ridiculous. He's got a house over there.....I can just move over there.....I can stop driving all over the place....and we can actually spend time together at night and on weekends like normal couples do! I don't know why it took me this long to figure all this out. Oh wait....yeah I do.....the house is kinda small and about 60 years old. But take a look at the view from the backyard. Not bad, huh?

I'm moving in less than two weeks. I've done just about nothing to get ready for the move....except make big messes and piles. The house currently looks like it's been ransacked. I should probably be getting concerned at this point.....but I'm still hoping that the "packing fairies" will just appear and do everything for me!

Wish me luck! I'm gonna need it!

Wow, very cool! That'll be nice that you won't be driving all over creation. Will the fabric be moving too or still staying in rental property?

Good luck Jenny. We all feel for you! I don't think moving is ever "fun" but hopefully the new situation will be worth it shortly. Best wishes. If my little house weren't overrun with fabric right now, I would LOVE to take it all off your hands! Best wishes!
