Big news around these parts. Hottie earned a promotion (Yaaaaaaay! Enter dramatic congratulatory music swell here and pan to look of pride on wife and children's faces.). This means we have to move (booooooos from the audience.).
It could not be more bittersweet. I am so unbelievably proud of and happy for Hottie. He has worked his tail off for years for this. He deserves it. He will be amazing in his new position, I have no doubt. But it means we leave Lexington, Kentucky after only being here for a year. There have been ups and downs during that time... but the bottom line is that this move from California has been really good for us. We've grown (by a baby and a puppy) as a family here. The kids are thriving. We adore our house. I've fallen in love with my roller derby family. We are having the time of our lives.
But. It's time to move on. The pros of going greatly outweigh the cons. New chapter, new adventure, and all that jazz (cue stiff upper lip).
It's hard to believe that we could possibly be any happier in Ohio.... but then again, we will be together, so that's all we really need (that and a killer new house... and some snow boots).
and I need to keep this in mind because the next couple of months are going to be a bumpy ride (there is a whole extra element to this I have not shared with you yet).....
(end post with the sound of me laughing to myself every time I say, "Ohio," out loud. Why is this so funny sounding to me?... "O-hi
-O..." "Oh! Hi, Oh.") This is the only state name that talks to itself in my head... totally random, but true.
