Matt and I will be making a lot of decisions this weekend and in the next several weeks as we progress through our relocation to the Nashville Area. It's been more painful than I thought it would be to get our house on the market. Who knew that relocation could be such a pain in the neck, and not only to us but the realtors as well? There are so many procedures, rules and regulations that hold everyone back that it seems to take forever. Tomorrow Matt and I must make our decision on which realtor we choose to list our house with. I thought this was going to be a simple decision but I have found that it's not. Both are very competent women and know what they are doing. One seems to have a bigger go get 'em attitude while the other seems to have wisdom and years behind her. So Matt and I will be discussing this as we travel to Nashville tomorrow.

Our next major decision lies with where we should live. Matt and I both went to school and bought our first home in Murfreesboro and to move back there kinda feels like coming home to me. But driving past the exits the past couple of years I have noticed how much the area has grown. I was told this afternoon that Murfreesboro now has 100,000 people living there and that traffic is horrible. And after living in this wonderful small town with no rush hour to speak of and very little traffic we aren't sure about moving back to that area. So we are beginning to consider a couple of other areas in our search. And this is one more decision.

We are also going to have to make decisions on a house, schools, neighborhoods and everything that goes with hunting for a house. In it's own way all of this is exciting and fun but there is also the stress involved in it all. I am beginning to feel it wearing on me just a little. I will be glad when the first of our major decisions has been made and then we can move on to the next. It's exciting and scary at the same time. We will get through it and move on. I guess I would feel differently if I had moved around a lot as a child but I lived in the same house from the time I was 3 years old until college. So it's hard but I am ready to take on the challenge. Wish us luck!

Wishing you luck - good luck! And, trying not to be jealous.

I'm a bit jealous because I would love to move. We live in a town of several millions (so I chuckled at the thought of 100,000 being crowded) and would love to move some where smaller and slower.
But the realities (realtors, packing, big decisions, etc.) of moving are not something I look forward to at all.
Good luck with the process...
