"Men! Do your thing!" "We surrender!!"

 Wherein Jack Announces

 I might just get right to the point with this.

 I will be moving at the end of the month. I should probably be excited about this, even a little excited, but right now I'm not. I'll be moving about 800 miles from home, where I've spent my whole life.

 The plan is to leave the end of the month. Therefore, since I only have a month left to spend time with my family I decided cut back on writing work. I am taking part in a little NaNo thing with a friend of mine - the name should be changed I guess, but since it's the basic NaNo idea we've been too lazy to call it anything else. I'll also be reading a bit, but that's it. I plan to revisit all my favourite places in town and annoy my family to death.

 This also means I won't be blogging as much. I'll be popping up off and on and doing some comments, But maybe not my normal three days a week.

 I will also go into more details about the move, just at this moment there is new snow and my mum and I are going for a walk. I just wanted to explain my AWOLness...a very poor explanation now that I look at it. I will have to redeem this soon.

 But SNOW! So TTFN my lovely readers!!

 Quote is from Flushed Away, the French frogs

  4. Love that quote!

    Cool! Moving is awesome. Hope it goes well for you.

    If there is snow, then there is no need to explain for the lack of explanation. Playing in fresh snow trumps all. ;)

  5. 800 miles? That's just across the state for me ... Good luck!

    (BTW, are you willing to share which general direction you're moving - as in, would it be any closer to where I live, because we really need to meet up at some point.)

  6. I can totally relate. When I moved away from home and was suddenly 900 miles away from my hometown, my family, and everyone I knew... it was very hard. Honestly, I cried every night for about 6 months... and I spent a lot of time getting lost, which caused me to cry even more. But! But it did get better. I learned my way around, I met some awesome people and made some wonderful friends. I was forced to rely even more on God and am so grateful that he is with me no matter where I am located. And video-chatting makes family seem a lot closer... even if they live all the way on the other side of the country. It's hard, and I miss them a lot, butI thank the Lord for the internet, which allows them to feel a lot closer.

    The excitement will come. But if you're like me and "excitement" never shows up, then at the very least the ache will grow less, and you will gradually find yourself putting down new roots - and the excitement will happen when you get to visit "home."

    Will be praying for you as you start this new adventure!

  7. I am praying so hard for you my Jim! You are so very, very brave. Moving is hard.

    It is good to spend time with your family visiting. Especially if you have snow. Snow is brilliant. I love that white stuff 8-D
