maybe you've read on my sidebar that i'm moving to Montana. our plan is to leave here in five months. i've worried about what life will be like there. i live in the desert of Arizona. the weather will be a huge change. we'll have more animals to take care of (3 dogs versus horses, chickens and a goat). there will be new challenges. i'm leaving a lot of good friends behind.
i know it will be tempting to think, "why did i leave?" i know i will have to make an effort to live in the present and not yearn for the past.
