VA Beach bound!

Well, we've officially told the kids, so I guess we're going!
Lots of decisions yet to be made, but this one is at least done.
I'm feeling better about it every day - Don still struggling.

The kids reacted about as could be expected. They all cried - Tarzan first, loudly, with big wet tears. Cinderella second - louder, but no tears. Scooby last, lots of tears, but trying to be brave. None of them want to go. They brought up missing their school, Granny, their friends. Cinderella wanted to know if we were bringing her stuffed animals and her mattress. Tarzan wanted to know if we were going before spring break was over. Scooby had lots of questions - he came downstairs after the other two went to sleep and we cuddled and talked for awhile. We told them that right now we don't know the answers to a lot of their questions, but we'll let them know as soon as we can.

My brain hurts.

Hugs! and congratulations! It will be a new and interesting chapter. The kids can get excited about the sun, the beach...tell them I saw dolphins last time I went to VA Beach. J sent Don's resume to his friend today.

Lots of questions: have you accepted to the school? do you put your house on the market? or get renters? will you work and go to school? are you excited? ???!!!???

To Cassie: Yes, don't know, maybe, probably only during the summers, yes!

Maybe with renters, you could make money. (Mortgage plus your rent in new place.) ...Treat it as an asset and not a liability. ...Just a thought.

That "anonymous" response was me.
Got a little wild with the return key. :) Am VERY happy for you!
