From City to Suburb
Packing up your stuff and loading it sucks. Unloading sucks. Unpacking sucks. Well, you get the picture. Now imagine all of that with added stress.
How? you ask. Moving across town seems like a breeze compared to moving cross country. There is a whole lot more planning and scheduling that goes into it. But, let’s not fret on the nasty side of the ordeal and let’s focus on another factor.
Moving from city life to a slower paced in the suburbs.
My whole life, I’ve lived in the city. But not just any city. I’ve lived in the desert my entire life. So, to go from dry heat to a more vegetated area away from skyscrapers was very enticing.
My husband comes from vegetation. He loves greenery and rain most of all, so this wasn’t really a struggle for him.
After years of trying to decide where to settle, we agreed on a suburb in South Carolina.
We’ve been here for about a month now and it feels like it’s just been, maybe 2 weeks. As you can imagine, with all the unpacking and trying to organize with a one-year-old clinging on to you, is a little difficult. So, as expected, time has not been on our side. We have been out downtown twice for like an hour or two total. What we’ve seen is beautiful, but we haven’t had much time to explore as we’re also trying to get used to a time difference of 3 hours!
It’s pretty nice here and even though we haven’t had time to explore the amenities, we have been running around for things such as groceries. We are within 5 miles of the important stores. You know, such as Target. Hehe. Everything else is within a reasonable driving distance.
The only thing I hate about living in a vegetative area is all the bugs. SO MANY SPIDERS and nasty cockroaches that we are working on trying to deter from going anywhere near the house.
At the time, we’re still recovering from exhaustion but as soon as we’re good to go, we’re going to explore every inch of the beautiful place!
