So we have been gearing ourselves up for moving to Milwaukee next spring. There aren't too many wheels in motion other than just mentally preparing ourselves to do such a thing. I am not crazy about living in Milwaukee. There is very little I like about the city other than one very, very important thing. That's where my sister and her family live. And an hour away from where my parents live. And homes are actually affordable to buy there. Okay, I guess that would be three very, very important things. But we don't want to move out of the Pacific Northwest, so that would be an important thing, too.
So today we made our annual trip to Olympia for the Procession of the Species. It is the fourth time I have been to the Procession and it's so much fun bringing the girls there. Matt used to live in Olympia and so he has a fondness for the city, as well. We realized that we could afford a home in Olympia. And it's such a cool little city. And super progressive. And crunchy. And we could afford a home there. Now I have my undies in a bundle about looking in to moving there. The big thing, of course, is that my family isn't there. None of our family is there, as a matter of fact.
This is like the biggest, hardest decision ever. We feel so torn about what we should do. One lucky thing is that Matt and I are pretty much on the same page about all of it. We both have the same feelings about moving and the same feelings about staying. It's frustrating and also exhilarating. I am excited about making some kind of change, I just don't know exactly what that change is.
