So we're moving to Hawaii.
After losing my job, I realized I could get back onto the same carousel of living paycheck to paycheck, always struggling and feeling very alone.... or we could change our lives.
My brother and SIL asked us to move a long time ago and it was tempting but I couldn't see doing it. Now I can't see any other choices looking half so good.
We leave on August 20. Until then we'll be packing, shipping things, working on our financials and panicking a lot. And I mean a lot.
I don't feel completely present in my life right now. Making such a huge change is leaving me feeling unsettled. And Carolyn, poor baby, is suffering through some physical ailments currently and not very happy in her life.
So right now when I start to feel panicky I stop and remember where I'm taking Mollie.
Yeah, this is where we're going. The Big Island, up north in Honokaa (Weimea). We'll be living a block away from a horse ranch (Mollie is delighted), we'll have chickens, fruit trees and a new beginning.
I promise a party before we leave (heh heh).
