I have moved!!! YES!!!!
The past month has been a flurry of packing, moving and getting things in order to move. I intentionally stopped blogging so that I can get into a less busy head space. I am officially a resident of Madison County….and that feels pretty good. Around my last couple of days left in Oxford, I realized that I have lived in Oxford for the past 10 years. I moved into Crosby Hall at Ole Miss on June 27, 2001. That was the beginning of the second summer session before my freshman year. I never left. Something about Oxford connected with me. I guess that was because my hometown is the size of a small village. Anything that was a little bigger was better for me. Went to undergrad there. Went to law school there. Then started spinning my wheels there. Great town for a student…..not that great for anyone else there.
I’ve been here almost 3 weeks and it is still kinda weird to call anywhere else home. These are familiar surroundings but I’ve only visited. I am still trying to get out and bump around to make myself more at home. The job search has also began. I may have a job next week….but that is the subject for another post if and when I get the job.
There is also a change with Boo Thang and I. Over the past few days, he has been the most affectionate guy. I have the urge to just reach out and ask him what he did, lol. He’s excited that he got to take me home with him. Can’t be mad at that. We were stuck in a little rut and the change of scenery has done us good….in 3 weeks lol.
HOWEVER (and what is a happy post without a “but”) I am SO ready to move, lol. We are staying with Boo Thang’s mother and stepdad until we save enough money to move out. I feel like that we have instantly stepped into the role of children. I love his mother to death, but it is so obvious that the absence of children has her happy that we are there. I don’t have any problems, but Boo Thang is seriously annoyed. When he’s annoyed, I’m annoyed. (It just happens like that sometimes.) I haven’t lived at home with my parents for more than a summer in the past ten years, so I understand how much of a culture shock this is for him. All the more reason to get on up, get it together and move on out. It’s going to work itself out though….or y’all will hear about it.
