I Never Thought

I never thought I would be sad to leave New Bern. "Leave New Bern?" you may ask. Yes, next weekend we are moving down to Beaufort to live with Erik's mom. Figuring we could sell our house easier if we weren't living in it, we decided to go ahead and move and then take the next month to get get our house in order before putting it on the market. The plan has always been to move down that way, and doing this will allow us to make the move sooner than later and also to get rid of some of that pesky student loan debt.

We moved to New Bern in August 2004 and I was underwhelmed from the beginning. Erik and I joked that no matter what we would never be "from New Bern." Well four and a half years and two children later, we are definitely New Bernites. We've made many friends and lived some of the most memorable years of our life here. Not to mention we are leaving just as we get a Dunkin' Donuts and Little CaesarsPizza right down the street. What is that about?! I'm sure we will return here quite often, and not just because most of the stake meeting are held here - there is the Target also.

We're excited for the next adventure in our life and to able to be closer to Erik's family. And to answer the question I get asked most often, yes Erik's mom and I do get along well enough for this to work:) Hopefully we'll all still like eachother when this adventure is over!

Good luck on your new adventure and with selling your house. Are you planning to find a home in Beaufort? Sans mother-in-law? How could you resist the dunkin' of the doughnuts and the pizza pizza? It's probably for the best.

I think I'm just as sad as you are. I love your house and the 2 hour drive...but it will be worth it go the extra one hour to see you and the fam.

The plan is to live with Erik's mom for a couple years while we payoff some debt. After that we'll buy a home somewhere down there.
