Sidetracked



Don’t Disappoint

It’s a decision we’ve been mulling over for a while, this decision to move to Chicago. I’m not afraid of living in a big city, I grew up in one of the biggest. I’m not afraid of falling flat on my face, I’ve done that over and over and, to my surprise, still get back up for more. I’m afraid of leaving Texas, where wherever I am I’m always at arms length to my family. I’m afraid of being even more left out of the loop with them than I already am. Mostly, I’m afraid of the never-ending winter.

This is a big adventure. I’m putting in all of my eggs, throwing caution to the wind, and going out on a limb.

    It’s going to be a great experience. It’ll change your life. Winter makes you stronger. And it makes summer even sweeter.

    just be sure you don’t count those eggs until they’ve hatched, jump from the frying pan into the fire or rock the baby right out of bed… and, um, buy a sweater.
    This all makes sense, actually; it’s the most sensible thing.

    Mike and I have a big bag of risotto rice from Italy that my dad got me, but I’m afraid… risotto always sounds so hard.

    I lived in Chicago for two years, away from all family as I knew it (left them all behind in Japan at the time), and I must say — it ranks right up there as one of the best times of my life…Dreadful winters and all. I think you’ll enjoy it lots. πŸ™‚
