They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom. ~Confucius
A few weeks ago as I was just beginning to emerge from the newborn fog, my husband came home with the news that we would have to move to Sydney (from Melbourne) as soon as possible. For the past 4 weeks, he has been living in Sydney Monday to Friday working and looking for places, while I have been living the life of a single stay-at-home mama. The past month has been challenging to say the least. Although we are leaving family and friends, I am eager to move and to be in the same city as my hubby as a family. We finally found a quaint little house in an area we are familiar with. The movers arrive Wednesday, and we will be sleeping in our new home Saturday night.
This has been a lovely first home for us and we will miss it dearly. I will also feel lost without my beloved mother's group, supportive parents-in-law and dear friends. I am heart-broken for North, who has made many friends here in Melbourne and who will now be missing both sets of grandparents. The move is not permanent but we will most likely be there for a year or two. I will keep my head high, look forward to nesting in a new space and take comfort in the fact that when one door shuts, another door opens.
