The truth is lately I've been stressed, annoyed and maybe a little depressed. I've been regretting, second guessing and questioning every decision I've ever made! I think my recent grumpy mood has a lot to do with my lack of caffeine circulating through my bloodstream. Really, there's just a bunch of stuff going on here and it's all more than I want to deal with! I just want everything to be perfect and our life to be easy, obviously that isn't possible.
I feel torn between wanting to travel more, wanting a house and deciding where we should live. We have talked about leaving Tennessee and going to Arizona where Rob and I both have family. A few years back, we were planning a move to Arizona but we chickened out. We visited a few times and really loved it there but we worried about the heat. It's kind of funny that we were too afraid to move to the state next to us but not too afraid to get rid of almost everything we own for life in a travel trailer. I feel okay with living in Arizona. But, if it were completely up to me I would live in Washington, Oregon, or Colorado. I really love all three of those states! I know we will have an easier time finding a job in Arizona, though, and my family will be around to babysit once in awhile if we need it. Rob's parents are in Arizona too, so we can visit them more often. I am also hoping my brother will make me delicious food once in awhile since he's an awesome cook!
On a side note, my parents accepted an offer on their house. It was the first offer they received and in my
Maybe they'll buy an RV and we can just follow each other around the country. Ha, ha, I'm kidding. I think they would love traveling and I would love to retire and do this all over again with Rob, but I am definitely ready for a house, wherever we decide to live! I really would like to slam a door when I'm mad and have enough hot water to fully clean myself in the shower!
