Since my last post, I’ve been gradually recovering from the chaos that was December 2021.
I’ve also been reflecting a lot lately. Reflecting on my recent past as a blogger, my current work life, and what I’ve learned and accomplished, not only in 2021, but since moving to Colorado with Hubs in 2016.
I am in a better frame of mind than I was when I wrote the last post of 2021. Time and the quiet space of my home have made that possible.
Checking some major things off my “to do” list at work has also made that possible. Grant submitted. Inventory done.
I guess you could say that right now, I’m breathing a long sigh of relief.
And I’m ready to begin to share in this space what I’ve learned so far: as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result of living, loving, and working in Colorado since 2016. As a result of parenting adults and being someone’s grandma. As a result of the meaningful friendships I’ve had (and still have) in my life. As a result of this being the year in which I turn 55.
Not to be dramatic or anything.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to go into all of that right here and now. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll get into it when I get into it. In 2022.
Because I have had a big old pin in something I’ve wanted to tell you all for the last couple of months.
If I was going to be dramatic and ridiculous here, I would show you this image before I spat out what it is that is housing (ha ha) the pin. Was that a pun?
Okay, so here it is:
I’m certain that for at least part of this year I will reside in Colorado. I will have a new zip code before the end of 2022. The license plates on the truck will be changing.
You get where I’m going with this?
Yes, of course you do. I know you all are not morons.
Hubs and I are moving. Our time in the great state of Colorado will come to, what feels to me, while not entirely pleasant and actually sad in some important ways, a natural end.
In 2022. To either Minnesota or Wisconsin; closer to both of our families and life-long friends. We are making some updates to our town home here, selling it and heading north.
So that’s my big news. I couldn’t just write a regular old post this week and ignore this major life decision I was holding in.
I’m going to buckle up, and if I was going to be dramatic, I’d tell you, as a reader, that you may want to as well.
2022 is bound to be quite a trip.
