I just accepted a job in Washington state. I will be leaving Tennessee in a couple of weeks. I have A LOT of packing and moving to do before I can leave. I'll be excited about it when I can see it as more than how much I have to do to get ready.
I can't think about it too much or I get teary about leaving this area. I have friends here. My parents moved here to be near me, and are now beyond the age that they can leave to follow me again. They have repeatedly told me to go wherever I needed to in order to get a job. This part doesn't feel good, the leaving part.
