We moved from beautiful San Diego, to dry, almost flat Arizona. A place for many years of my life I vowed I would never move to. Did you know I was born in Mesa? Anyways, Nick and I loved living in San Diego for a few reasons, the weather, the beach, the people, the food, and the family.
What we didn’t love. The cost of living. The taxes. The stress. The fact that we will never be able to afford to purchase a home. Or it would take far too long. Also, we didn’t love the idea of raising our kids in some of the areas.
So, we moved. To the one place we both said we would never move.
We are on this new road. It’s unpaved, filled with dirt, some rocks and unsettled dust. Which is exciting and also annoying. The dust from the road kicks up and gets all over you, and the rocks like to find their place in the parts which you think are smooth and untouched.
Are you getting my analogy?
Our life is on this new road, we have a great big home, we moved to a very cool area filled with farms and quaint people. We are struggling to find balance in working from home, taking care of our kids and getting balanced in our social lives.
Sometimes I feel like we are on this road alone, that we made a mistake. Nick thrives on social interaction and isnt getting as much as he needs. I am feeling like all I do is work. Our kids rule our lives. Babysitters are harder to find. But we have these great and comforting experiences that let us know we made the right choice. We are supposed to be.
On this new road.
