I will be moving in about a month.
I have given notice to everyone.
I have been asking myself for a very long time if being up here in Sticksville is the right kind of life for me. I enjoy the ranch work, but when I am completely honest with myself, I don't think it's something I want to do for the rest of my life. Same thing with publishing.
I never would have known for sure had I not uprooted myself from Sacramento to try it. Both things were things I had really no experience with. My grandparents gave me a wonderful opportunity to stray out of my comfort zone and try something new. I have enjoyed learning from them and spending time with them. Before this I was lucky if I could come up once a year to visit.
It will be hard to say good-bye to all the wonderful people I have met since moving up here.
This was not an easy decision to make. I think I agonized over this more than choosing to move up here.
My friend and family support me in my decision. And my Redding friends are excited that I'm finally "moving back home" so they can see me more often.
I will be job hunting - my mom is scouring the want-ads and I'm checking online. I already have a few jobs to apply for. And I will be looking for a place to live - once I have a job, that is. I have "room offers" from friends, my parents are currently offering up their 5th wheel . . . being that my room is now Granny's room! lol
So, if I'm not commenting as regularly or posting as regularly, it's because I'm packing and trying to lighten my load by doing some major cleaning out of things. But I will still be reading your blogs because I do so enjoy it. Just bear with me and I will back to normal in no time.
