I’ve had a lot of readers/friends/family ask me recently about our move to OK. Sometimes I forget that everyone isn’t a part of our daily conversations and thought process. Since the primary focus of this blog has been getting our house ready to sell, it makes sense.
Long story short, we met with a realtor and decided that if we move to OK in the next few years that we should rent/lease our house rather than sell. We also decided not to move unless Ben has a good job opportunity lined up there.
Another problem is that we’re pretty happy where we’re at – just look at those smiling faces at the Blind Pilot concert we went to the other night! Lots of things have contributed to this over the past year: me working part-time, finding a new church family, discovering Midtown Memphis and mostly our attitudes.
We are invested in our lives here and it would not be easy to say goodbye. To give all that up just to rent our house and move to OK with no jobs seems kinda silly. The best thing for our family right now is to sit tight, live where we live and continue to look for the right opportunity and time to move.
This decision was not an easy one. Somehow I thought that if we made a contract and simply decided to move that everything would just fall into place. Life doesn’t work like that. Lots of people that love us want for us to be in OK and that’s tough. We hope that they find peace with this decision like we have.
Don’t worry about us getting boring like Jim and Pam post marriage. We have some surprises up our sleeve about what’s next for our little family. What’s one of the hardest decisions you’ve had to make in life?
