A New Zip Code

It's official, we're moving back to the OC!

For those of you that don't know, Orange County is one hour north (give or take) of where we live now. When Todd and I met, I had been living in the OC for eight years. It'll be good to be back.

Our San Diego home has been for sale for two weeks and we've had almost two dozen showings. We spent the weekend looking at neighborhoods and new houses and hoping, if all goes well, that we will be in a new zip code (Lord, help me!) before the first of the year.

On top of everything else I'm dealing with, a move could not be more ill-timed, but with Todd's recent endeavor being based in Newport Beach and his need to put in more hours and the fact that all of my close friends live in Orange County, it just makes more sense for us to be there instead of here. I love our current home, our neighborhood, and the friends we've made in the six years we've lived here, but change is good and I am very excited about this one.

As much as I am dreading it; purging, organizing and packing will be cleansing. It's amazing how much stuff one household can accumulate.

Bring on the packing tape, boxes, broken nails and late nights!!

OMG! I haven't even relocated yet and I'm already losing a friend! :) If it were a bit closer to our timeframe I'm sure we'd look at your house!!! Good luck with everything! Will you be living in Newport?

I'm glad for you! You seem very excited.
You'll be amazed what you find when you start packing. It's quite an adventure sometimes.

Oh, I'm so psyched for you! Like you said, timing is tough but it will be a good thing in the end. Change can be good, like a rebirth sometimes.

Sending good karma your way...and a few *hugs*!

Does this mean you are closer to Nat or further away? Moving is always so exciting!
