Hi, guys, I'm here. I see there are tons of posts (and trip reports - YAY!!!) for me to catch up on, so that will keep me busy for a while!
The board nonsense originally kept me off of here, but just some different life directions, too. In spring, we were trying to decide about moving (we didn't enjoy living in Jacksonville) and decided to put our house on the market. That took some work - we listed just before Memorial Day. Then we started looking for where we'd move next (assuming our house sold), so we took a trip, driving around various cities we thought we might enjoy. I was still interested in the suburb of Atlanta I had wanted to move to when we moved to Jacksonville, but DH wasn't sure. We (on a whim) drove to Knoxville, TN on the way home and we both really liked it! Well, shortly after that, we got an offer on our house with a 30-day close. Yikes!!!
So, home shopping commenced quickly - necessitating trips north 9 hours! We found a place, thought about it, made an offer, drove back up for inspection (because DH had some concerns - it's on older house, will need some work). Thankfully, it all worked out and we were only "homeless" for about a week (during which time we traveled a bit). Closed on the new house Aug 9th and school started here Aug 12th! Just in the nick of time!!!
Busy summer. No Disney. :(
And now, of course, since we're now 10 hours away from Disney, now I REALLY want to go again!!! Who knows when we'll make it next. We've been there every year since Megan turned 4 (I guess that's 4 years) for their birthday celebration (in February - nice to combine the birthdays) - so that's a small chance. I mean, at least I can justify it as a time we "should" go. :)
So, there's my catch-up. Still unpacking here, not a lot of exploring the area yet. But that's on our list!
