Restless

Sweetie wants us to move, out of our neighborhood, away from the tired sights and sounds that She grew up with and the new ones that are jarring and annoying.

I've moved way too much in my life to ever want to do it again. I have planted trees here and moved literally tons of soil and I don't want to start over again.

But I'm restless,too. Want to travel. Want a better job. Want to adopt a child into our family.

Restless, restless, restless.

Ahh...that restless spirit again - sometimes it makes us miserable. Why does the grass always look greener on the other side I wonder...

A move can be a good thing. But I know what you mean. It is nice to finally stop at one point.

Maybe you can just go on a nice vacation together. Get your travelling done.

I hope you figure it all out. All the best to the both of you.

I get that way. Moved frequently as a kid and now it feels wrong to just settle in. But I also have equally strong desires not to uproot myself.

If you must move, do it before children! If I could wind the clock back I would not subject my children to the number of moves they endured growing up. Good luck coming to a decision! It hurts, physically, to nurture a garden for several years, then have to leave it for someone else to enjoy, or worse yet, to neglect!
