The start of 2010 has been somewhat harsh in my little world. I am preparing to watch all of my belongings be packed up and moved back to where I grew up. It is a bitter pill to swallow since Nashville is my home now. I have struggled with this decision for a couple of months and still have moments where the tears come easily. And other times where I am just okay with everything.
The move is great professionally. I have been given a wonderful opportunity to learn more, take on more and maybe in the future move up the ladder. My friends and family are thrilled that I will be back. But I know me and while it will not be a new city to adjust to, it will be a difficult transition non the less.
I am used to a large city, where I can get lost in it and rarely bump into someone I know. I am used to shopping, sports and entertainment venues here. The biggest adjustment will be leaving my friends here. I love them all and have become quite accustomed to having them around. They are like family to me.
I have some silver lining to the whole move. My new place is bigger (!), I can paint the walls (for a girl who has lived with beige walls for way too long) and I am now the proud owner of a brand new mattress. Simple things here people. I have also, thanks to my very helpful parents, have a new bedroom suite waiting for me there. I guess you can say I may actually have a really grown up home for the first time.
So, blogging might be sparse for the next couple of weeks but I want to get back on the wagon and blog more once my life settles back down. I have a little party to go to this weekend and next week (gasp) I will be leaving my home to start fresh. I also have to figure out how to placate my cat for the two hour car ride. Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers.
