Moving is my life

I've had a few people ask me how I'm so seemingly calm and relaxed about this move to Florida. What most people don't realize is this is my 14th move in my lifetime (I'm probably rounding down). What's going to stress me out is when we're in one place for 5 years!

When I was two, my mom and I moved from California to Phoenix to live with my grandparents. Once we were able to move out, we lived in at least two locations I can remember. In kindergarten we moved to Seattle and lived in at least three places. Sixth grade moved back to Phoenix with my mom and three-year-old brother (my mom's pattern was move away, get married, have a child, get divorced, move back to Phoenix), three locations there, then I graduate and move to Nebraska. Now I'm not counting each of my moves in and out of the dorms every year, but John and I get married and move off campus for my last year of school. Move down to STL, live in two locations here, and now finally our move to Florida, which will not even be close to our last!

So yeah, I guess I'm pretty even-keeled when it comes to this upcoming move...

  3. Sarah I love love it! Once we get internet at thee house I think I'm gonna change my background; I wasn't hugely fond of this one and since I only have one color to match I'll have more options. Thanks so much for your help!
