Now that we live here, we live here. Our farm and business is here. We're not going to be moving for a long time, if ever, depending on what happens in the future.
Not only am I really invested in my community, but I also apparently have a new concern I've never had before.
I have really great friends here. When one of them used to tell me that she had news, I would automatically guess that she was pregnant. Not anymore!
Recently my friend called and said, "I have news!"
I said, "Please don't tell me you're moving!"
Another friend started working in a city 2.5 hours away and commutes. She started telling me about her job and I interrupted with, "You're moving. I just know it!" She hasn't yet. Yet.
Last night we were out with another couple. My friend began a story with, "Try not to be shocked." I said, "You're moving!"
She laughed. My response has become automatic. The funny part is - she also has a farm. She's not going anywhere either.
