North Carolina or Bust

Now is the time to change it all up. We are moving to Raleigh, NC!

The emotions are running at full speed while swerving across all lanes. The wife will be there for a little while until the younger kiddo finishes school and then he and I will join her. The older child (young man) will stay behind and make his own way.

Is this the right move?
Everyone says yes

Is this going to be easy?

Is this going to be an adventure
120% yes

Why North Carolina?
No real answer except it looked like a great state to move and Sondra landed a Great Job!

Will I have a job?
My current employer is willing to let me keep my job and work remote. I am thankful for this and I will strive to make it work.

We have purged so much stuff

We leased a house sight unseen with only pictures

Sondra and I leave Feb 25th
