It's been in the works for a short time and required some interesting juggling, but I can now report/warn you that I am moving ... again.
You might be thinking, Didn't you just move? Why, yes! Yes, I did. In September 2012, my amazing husband helped back up a moving van and my little Mini, and we moved to Madison, Wisconsin for a new job. I have enjoyed my time in Wisconsin. I've met some wonderful people, learned a lot of interesting things, and seen some pretty cool stuff. I've also learned some things about myself. Such as, my sanity suffers significantly when winter last for 6 months.
Now, don't get me wrong. I like snow. I don't mind winter too much, though the temperature in Wisconsin was far colder than I've ever had to experience on a long-term basis. But apparently when the snow arrives in December and doesn't leave until late April, I start to crack.. a bit.
By fall of this year, I decided that we needed to start looking south again.
After some interviewing, I managed to land a new job in South Florida. Yes, the land of eternal summer! No more snow for me. Sure, I'm going to probably melt during the summer months, but there will be no more snow. I think I need a break from the snow.
So, it's looking like the amazing husband and I are going to be packing up another moving van and moving south in later January to early February. During the next couple months, we're going to be downsizing our things and looking for a new place to live. As a result, I might not be around much during the next couple of months as I commute between Wisconsin and Florida and prepare to officially move.
But I'll keep you updated on all the fun and post pictures as we finally get south.
Also, since I going to a new state, I am looking for new places to sign books. Do you know of any great bookstores between Orlando and Miami that I should visit? I can stop by and sign some books for you! I'm also taking suggestions for places that we absolutely must visit once we move to Florida.
Even through the moving and the chaos, I promise to keep writing. I hope to have a couple new stories for you to read in 2014!
