So on Thursday night Husband, boys and I had dinner with Husband’s mom (MIL), step-dad (FIL), and brothers (BIL1 and BIL2). A get together is not a big deal because it is a very close-knit family that randomly has get-togethers like this, I would say every one-to-two months. Thursday was a little different.
Looks like MIL and FIL are moving all the way across the country to Tennessee in 2019. 2,316 miles away. None of us were really surprised because they had been talking over the last couple of years about the possibility of going and what would need to be done to accomplish that goal and other stuff. What surprised me was that they are going to divide their property into four equal parts and give them to Husband, his brothers and another person in FIL’s family. 8.25 acres each.
That was a major twist. A good twist in this journey.
Since that night Husband and I have been having serious discussions about the possibility of moving to TN with them. We would need to start getting our stuff together and paying down debt to save for putting up a house on the land if we decide to do it. Either way, though the land is there if we use it, or not.
Another great thing is that my job moves with me, so I don’t have to go through the awkward stage of moving to a new place and also looking for work. Unfortunately, depending on when we depart is on if Husband will have to go through the same song and dance. Finding an accounting job in TN shouldn’t be too difficult? We shall see when we cross that bridge.
What do you think? Have any of you ever move cross country? What would be some advice for us? Look forward to seeing some responses.
See you on the other side.
