One of the reasons I'm blogging is to have an online diary of my thoughts, emotions, and experiences. As I mentioned in my last post, we sold our house. This makes for some very hectic times ahead. But aside from all of the stress of moving (you know--packing, arranging transportation, figuring out how to move 3 vehicles, selling things you don't want to take, etc.) there is also the emotional loss that comes with leaving a place. Today, I want to talk about one of the things I will miss when we move.
A major attraction for us when we moved to Charlotte was the benefit of living so close to my grandparents. Any time I had visited in the past there was always a 12 hour long drive to contend with. It was exhausting! But moving to Charlotte cut the drive time to a comparatively short 4 hours. This made visits much more frequent. In fact, we went this past weekend for a visit. Such a great trip! We went to the beach, we played mini-golf, got ice creams, played Euchre till all hours of the night, and had all sorts of shenanigans that can only be had with your grandparents. ::sigh:: We'll miss being so close to people we love so much.
