    Well...today feels like the "official" start of major changes that are about to come flying at me at blinding speeds. Definitely a strange time for me.

    This is my last day at my current job. It is one of those situations where I really like the people I work with, but haven't exactly been happy with the actual job in quite some time. So, won't miss the job, definitely will miss the people...most of whom I consider great friends. Work is a strange place, considering just how much time you spend with these people.

    After this, its full swing get-ready-to-move time. My house will be getting packed up on Monday and then starts the adventure of moving half way across the country. That is something I've sworn I would do for years now, and even though I've wanted it for a long time, I can't believe the day is finally just around the corner.

    Strange times indeed!

    Well, I can remember talking with you at the very beginning stages of this plan and I am so excited for you to start fresh. Change is scary, but necessary to keep life interesting ;) I know that once you aer settled in your new place things will seem more relaxed. Congrats on making this goal happen :thumbsup:

    Change is always difficult and routine can be painful....there is no happy medium.

    Good luck with the move, I understand you're shifting to Texas? Better buy yourself a gun or you won't fit in. (kidding :lol: )

    I know how you feel. I've never left home for more than a week. I love the time i spend here at my workplace and i leave on Friday! :guilty: Plus a while after that, my boyfriend is coming to take me away to live in New York!
    The place i live in now is very different than New York. It's a small town...The biggest thing we got going for ourselves is that we own the biggest liftlocks in the world. :/

    It's pretty scary... :confused:

    Yup, picking up and moving definitely feels strange sometimes. Doesn't seem like too long ago I was talking with a few people about a scouting trip in Joshua Tree ;)

    I can't imagine picking up and moving across the country. I hate the thought of just moving across town. I think it is all in the attitude people have when they have to make a major change. You seem excited and hopeful and I think that it will make it a positive experience for you.

    I won't go on and on about Texas because I know California has a lot to offer. We'll let you get settled in and then show you around the state. :hugs:

    Yaaay! Chase will be in my time zone soon! :lol:

    It'll be ok, Chase...it'll just take some time for things to feel normal again.

    I picked up and moved from Michigan to Georgia years ago, and it was a very heady period. Heading into the Great Unknown is a time for solemn reflection.....so go party your butts off! :mrgreen: :cheers:

    I think it's wonderful to challenge yourself like this, shake things up. :thumbup:

    Congrats on the last day, the Big Move, and here's wishing the best of times for you! :)
