It has been a long while since I have blogged. I have been struggling with some changes in my life and just became pretty much overwhelmed with them for several months so I had to pull back on the blog. But I figured I had better jump back in or so much will have passed that I won’t have a clue where to start.
First off, the main struggle I have faced is we are moving…yes, again. It was only 3 years ago when we made our last move and we truly hoped it would be the last one. Well, not so. My DH began working for a company based out of Edenton, NC last August and I stayed here in SC for the school year. Although logically the move was something I understood, somewhere after Christmas I just locked down and got pretty depressed about it. My boys aren’t happy about the move either, which has made it even harder. Our oldest son is in high school, and a move during high school is so hard. He truly loves it here and loves his school and, of course, his friends. We have even discussed trying to continue splitting our time between SC and NC until he graduated but that would mean we would have to do it for 3 years (including this current year) and that is a long time not to be together except on weekends. It would mean DH would have to miss out on everything (pretty much) that the boys are involved in and I would be single parenting 2 boys. I will say that this move has been the hardest of all of the moves we have made. I am totally in love with our home and this town and the idea of leaving it all has really been a challenge. But, I suppose I have finally come to some level of acceptance and am ready to just get it over with
Recently we went to our last Phi Mu Parents weekend at Georgia Southern University! It was really bitter sweet because our daughter is graduating this week! I have enjoyed so much sharing her sorority time and seeing her enjoy so many of the same things I enjoyed during my college sorority time. I am so proud of her. She has already accepted a job in the Atlanta area which is perfect for her and she is ready to move into a cute little apartment at the end of the month.

Also, in other big news... DD got engaged on April 28th to her boyfriend of a year and a half! They haven’t set a date yet as he is going to be starting Pharmacy School this summer and then they will figure out the timing of the wedding. I am so happy and will blog about their engagement soon!

So, this mouth is full of bitter sweet things as we have graduations, new jobs, end of school activities and lots of good byes that are going to be so hard to do...not to mention a house on the market (another post as well!) I hope to be blogging semi-regularly in the coming weeks as I have so much to catch up on and lots to share from our little corner of the world.
