It is now fall, a season of changing leaves and big changes for the Greenes. Ready to hear why my blog has been stalled: we are moving!
L and I have been living on the East Coast for almost four years. We started this blogging adventure soon after moving to stay in touch with friends and family.
After four years of marriage living more than a thousand miles away it is time to move “home”, which for us is the Northwest. We are ready to be near family in an environment that is familiar to us.
This has been a plan long in the making. Although we have enjoyed visits from family this summer, most of our time has been spent checking off our lengthy to-do list for this transition.
In many ways that hard work is behind us. Part of July and most of August for L was spent applying to and interviewing with employers. At the same time, we had a lengthy list of house projects to complete before putting our house on the market. So every weekend was packed with trips to Lowes and house work.
But our house is now on the market. It makes this long process real when you have a for sale sign in front.
And just last week L accepted a job offer in Washington. So now we know where we are moving to. We are blessed that this will be only a few hours of travel from family and not a whole day in a plane (with jet lag).
Meanwhile I just started my last semester of teaching. My employers gave me the opportunity to work alongside a co-teacher, providing me with a chance to work while also giving me the freedom to leave before the semester ends.
So there it is: we are moving.
