Happy Halloween! It's been a long time since my last post, and a lot has happened. Let's start off with a bombshell, we're moving about 3000 miles from where we currently call home.
My wife has been discharged from the Navy, and we're officially moving back to good old Massachusetts; we leave Friday. Now living with kids and cats is difficult to say the least, but moving this far had been that much more of a logistical nightmare. Fortunately for us, my parents have welcomed us with open arms. Or 2 kids and 2 cats are currently living with my parents, to spare then the drive. I really don't think the kids would have lasted the entire drive across the country strapped to car seats, not to mention the cats.
We have a grand journey planned out. We're going to drive up to Yosemite, San Francisco, Yellowstone, and MT Rushmore, to name a few. I understand it's a little ambitious for winter, but we'll see how the roads are.
My wife spend the last week getting our kids and cats settled in New England, and is flying home tonight. It's been a long week without them already, and it's going to be an even longer couple weeks of driving before I get to hold them again. I really miss them, but daily video chats have helped a bit.
I've had a great job out here, and I'm going to miss that a lot. I'm trying to transfer to a location back east, but it's not looking promising right now. I've also met some great people, both in work and outside. I'll definitely miss the people. It's a shame really that I may never see them again. At the moment we have no plans to come back to San Diego to visit, so that's a weird feeling. I'd like to do an LA or maybe San Francisco again some day though.
I'm really looking forward to my kids growing up around family. I have a very big and very close family that I miss dearly. I'm so happy that my kids will get to grow up with the love and support that I did.
So I'll say it now, San Diego, you've been great! I'll miss the times I've had here, and I'll miss some of the people too.
I'm a Boston boy through and through, and I can't seem to be happy living anywhere else.
