By this time on Saturday, I will be in Maryland. Yup, shortly after the most recent Storm of the Century, Kevin and I are moving to a snow-buried house in the Mid-Atlantic.
I’ve been experiencing a lot of emotions in relation to this move- sadness over leaving my favorite place we’ve ever lived, stress from the nature of packing and shipping a household 5,000 miles, anxiety over the hours and hours of flying we’re undertaking, and uncertainty about what awaits us on the other side of those flights, just to name a few. I’m also a little worried about how we’re going to survive til spring, given that the warmest clothing either of us owns is a hoodie.
Having spent nearly two years inHawaii, it’s hard to imagine living on the mainland again. Even reminding myself of all the positives- we’re going to have friends again! We’re going to get a dog! – isn’t doing much to dispell my nerves.
While I’m packing, you all should leave comments reminding me why living on the east coast is great. What’s your favorite thing to do? What makes it more fun than island life?
