I am almost finished living a double life. It hasn't been a secret double life, but it has been a double life in so many ways. I am kind of a resident of two states. I have two homes. I do continue to keep my same husband in both lives, though, so I think that is good;-)
One week from tomorrow, I will have my apartment packed up and ready to head back to my little house on the meadow and my other three kids. This will be move #18 for me, I believe.
I have such mixed emotions about the whole thing. No mistake about it, I have missed being near my older kids!! I have missed my little house on the meadow. I have missed my dog:-) (Bethany, don't argue!) I have missed our extended families and some dear friends. It will be wonderful to be back.
But....I still consider upstate NY home. I can't help it. It is the place where I have spent the majority of my adult life. I have the most memories with my kids here. I have wonderful friends and a great church. I like the pace of life in Rochester and I love the people here. Davin's school here is AMAZING!
I live two lives, but not for long now.
