The End…?

I don’t know if anyone will see this, and it’s likely the last thing I will post here. I just don’t have the time or energy any more. I had to step away when I realized that I was living my life each day waiting for things to happen that I could write about. Every time I took photos, I thought about if they could be posted. I didn’t like that feeling once I recognized it, and a full break from posting was necessary.

Anyway… this is the end in more ways than that: we are moving. Like, physically moving. We are going to Portland, Oregon. Not because it’s cool (though it seems to be), but because John was offered a nice job there with a lot more potential than we have here.

Sadly, we will be leaving our extended families behind, which is really hard to come to grips with. Cole and Rowan will be at home with me until next school year, because Cole is still too young to go to school in Oregon, apparently.

We will also, likely, be losing our house here. I’m not ready to talk about that in any more detail.

We are excited, scared, anxious, sad… all of the above, really. Things will work out. Our family (the 4 of us, anyway) will still be together. We will find new friends; new community. It will be okay.

See you later. Maybe.

(I still get comment notifications, so if you have Portland advice I’d love to hear it!)
