Moving Day!

Monday, July 19, 2010

So, I'm sitting here on the floor in our computer room writing on the laptop as our "real" computer is all set to be packed away. The only other person in the house is some guy (who's really cute) from the moving company who is upstairs packing up our spare bedroom...he may be on to my son's room by now. And I just can't believe this day is finally here *she's states with relief*
It's a bitter sweet ending to 3 years here in the UK. Although we love the adventure of moving to a new location we thought we'd be here another year. I'm finding this move the most difficult of all. I've made really good friends here, my husband has felt like he belongs, and our son was well settled in at his school making great progress. Ah, that's life in the Air Force though.
Most significant of all for me about this move is the fact that I will be leaving 60 pounds behind and, believe you me, it can STAY! I came here weighing over 230 pounds! I couldn't believe the pictures of me that got put into an album for a going away gift. Some folks don't even remember me looking like that. I sure do! I remember how it felt too! If it weren't for the fact that I had to get my son to pre-school I don't think I would have left the house. (Except to get more food, of course.) I thought I was eating myself happy while I was missing the USA, my family, my friends. But I was miserable.
Then, a year later......SparkPeople! 'Nough said! Now, although I still would like to lose some more fat, I can move on to our next home (Tucson, AZ) without my weight being the focus of my life. We're excited about our new location because of all the sports activities it offers. There is so much to look forward to and the best part about it is I won't feel restricted because of my weight. What a great feeling!
So, there's just one week left here. We've slept our last night in our house. Now we're staying with friends here in town so I can still walk our son to school. He's got a friend's birthday party on Saturday and then Sunday we are USA bound. Two weeks in VA with family and friends to our new lives in Tucson.

    Hey lady! I hope the move went well...I'm just popping by SPFriend pages, and I haven't heard from you in a while. Lots of stuff in AZ to do...and beautiful weather ...a dry heat. :) Drop me a note when you get a chance!

    You'll enjoy AZ. We're stationed at Luke AFB here in AZ and we love it. Great weather, just a little hot sometimes!

    Wishing you the best! Have a very safe move. If only we all got to see as many places as your family has had the opportunity to experience. I know it isn't always easy, but the true friendships will last a lifetime regardless of distance!
