Life is pretty hectic right now because my husband and I will be moving in three weeks. We still have to finish packing and get a big truck set up to carry our stuff out to our new residence. We also have to finalize plans on where we will be living. We have chosen an apartment. In fact, we visited our new city this past week for that express purpose.

It went pretty well. I like the new area a lot. In fact, I like it a lot better than this horrible town. I am glad to be moving because I have never liked this area. I will be sad to leave the friends I have made and my work. But I look ahead to day of having more time to write and keep the new place clean. I am excited about the idea of a fresh start. I only hope it will not take too long to settle in at our new place.

Today I am filing taxes. Yes, I waited to the last minute, but only on the state taxes. I completed the Federal taxes a while back. I could have taken them to a tax preparer and probably should have. But I really hate the idea of giving a third party all my financial information. So I am doing them myself. I have never experienced a form as dreadful as this state's income tax return. It is horrid. Absolutely horrid. Just another reason that I want to leave this stupid state! The people are rude, there's nothing nice here, no one cares about anything and the tax returns are mind bogglingly stupid. I hope things make more sense in my new home.

I know moving can be such a pain but its something I have always loved doing. The idea, like you said, of a fresh start is what I think I like best about a move. I think we have one more move in us before we settle in for good.

Good luck!

Yay for moving! Down with taxes! :)

One good thing about where I live is that we have no state income tax so there's only one government taking the fruit of my labor by force instead of two.

I'm glad you're looking at the move optimistically.
