Looking for adventure

"I see my path, but I don't know where it leads. Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it.”
-Rosalia de Castro

When Rob decided to attend his 3-week leadership training that started the day after our wedding, he asked me if I would be upset if he didn’t actually get promoted before the next session in March.

Well, here we are in mid-March. While I’m not upset that we postponed our honeymoon (our snow trip over New Years was absolutely a dream!), I’m getting a little bummed out that we are still living in the busy city, with no mention of a transfer in our future.

I’m ready to start over, to reinvent myself.

My job’s boring—even when I’m working on the stuff that I enjoy, I’ve gotten bogged down in some commitments that I really can’t leave if I’m still in town. I really want to live in a house with a yard in a city that doesn’t have too much traffic. I want some excitement. I’d jump at the chance to move out West or overseas—those of you who know me in person are probably thinking that someone must have hijacked my site, but no, I’m really itching to get away from here.

Perhaps it’s the first year of marriage that’s got me feeling tied down, but don’t get me wrong, I’d take Rob with me. I don’t know how many times I’ve suggested that he look for a job out in Arizona or someplace. But right now he’s dedicated to the company that he’s been with for 5 years, and they are located almost exclusively in the Southeast. Note to Rob’s boss: please recognize that Rob’s wife wants to move as soon as possible. While exotic, far away locations are ideal, she’ll be grateful for most anything.
