And when I say "kind of big news" I mean like, really big.
In less than two weeks, we are moving.
Out of NYC.
To the suburbs.
Out of the apartment my children were born in.
Into a house.
Our first house.
We are filled with excitement and melancholy, happiness and stress, expectation and fear.
Most of all, we are filled with readiness.
We love New York so much (we have lived here for over thirty-six years, combined), yet we know it is now time for us to leave. We are falling in love with a new place, yet the relationship is untested.
Right now we are in this weird limbo, basically prepared for moving day in all the technical ways, and yet just kind of waiting through the last days and weeks.
I just told Taro, right now it's like we are in a holding pattern and when the holding pattern ends we're going to have a whole new life.
And that's the news.
