In my head it went from "This might be a good idea" to "We're leaving this week"Yeah, that's usually how it works for me and LD . We make a decision and then get moving on it. We talked about whether or not we are impulsive or just go after what we want. I'm going with the latter, because impulsive isn't what responsible adults are .
Seriously, I appreciate the support and I know it's the right decision. It's something we've been beating around the bush about for awhile and when one of us said it with some seriousness (I can't remember which one of us), the other jumped all over it. We were both thinking it but didn't want to express unhappiness over living here after only 3 years. Because really, we're not unhappy here, we just know we're missing some very crucial (to us) elements in our lives by staying here.
When we told SIL we were moving she asked why. I said, "Well, it's BEEN three years!"
Take up your space (and do it well).
I told her she better not get sick of me (5.8 miles away!!!) and she said NO way! Our relationship has come so far and I'm so happy about that.
