The Big Move

Guest post from: Constance Rodgers

I’ve been researching everything we need to know about Texas before we move. I’ve been looking into Electric Companies Texas and the school systems and whether or not we need to get fire insurance. I’ve been really excited about the move but now that it’s closing in on us I’m starting to get really nervous – I’ve never lived more than 100 miles from my parents and I am going to have a really hard adjustment moving to Texas from Oregon, I can bet you that. The kids are really excited because they’re not old enough yet to really miss any of their friends and be sad that they’re leaving their hometown. I think they seem to think it’s going to be nothing but horses and barbecue and big belt buckles all the time but since we’re moving to Dallas I know it’s going to be a lot more urban than that. My husband is nervous about starting his new job and I’m nervous about leaving mine – this will also be the first time I’ve been out of work since my daughter was born and I’m simultaneously looking forward to having more free time and dreading the inevitable feelings of boredom that come with being at home. I remember how crazy I felt by the end of my last maternity leave and I’d only been on bed rest for about 6 weeks! We’ve got the movers scheduled and we’re all ready to transfer the kids’ school records over to the next place we land them and my husband and I have already met some of the new neighborsin our new neighborhood. Lucky for me we’ve bought a house that needs a little bit of work so I’m going to have my hands full at least for a little bit getting it painted and getting the furniture in the right places and making sure it feels like a home for my family. There’s never been a better time for us to bond as a family!
