Happy New Year!!

There is no doubt that 2009 will be a very different year for my husband and I. While 2008 was a nerve racking year where major changes were set up and waiting for things to unfold was our norm; 2009 is a year where we already know that many changes will happen.

First, I am both happy and sad to say that we will be moving to Northern Kentucky within the next few months. We are not sure how soon this will happen, though we do want to take advantage of the low interest rates to buy our new home. The biggest concern for us is what we should do with this house. The housing market in our zip code is particularly lousy and we would really love to find a renter looking for a sweetheart deal for a couple of years.

My emotions have been all over the place. Happy that my husband has the new job he so wanted and that we will get a new start, but really upset that once again I have to pack and leave wonderful friends behind! I am trying to look forward to being settled in KY and to remember that good friends remain a part of your life and who you are forever. Good friends will cross your path again though never as often as you'd like.

Anyhow, this is January 1st and a time to look towards the days ahead and consider what we can do to make the next year better. I wish you well and I will do my best to keep eveeryone updated, though hopefully not bored, with our progress with the move.

May 2009 be the best year of your lives and may you wake up everyday with a smile on your face and a spring in your step!
