No Regrets

All decisions have pros and cons. We all struggle through them to make the best decision. In the case of one's life, it is even harder. Jobs, cities, kids, spouse, family, friends--all weigh heavily on the decision.

The fact is I miss my family and friends in MS dearly. I still get text messages from the owner of my favorite bar (I dubbed "Cheers") telling me the nightly specials and entertainment. It just kills me to know I can't go.

However, the reality is that I DID make the right choice. After just two short weeks, I've made some great acquaintenceships at work and went out for beers yesterday. Work is going so well so far, too. I'm trying to meet folks around town, but I'm still in temp housing---but that will change soon, too!

I can say now that I have no regrets. I miss my past but my future's so bright...

Glad to hear you're adjusting up there. One tip: buy ice scrapers and snow brushes in the summer, when they're not in such popular demand! ;-)

I'm looking for a new pair of sunglasses, for everyone keeps telling ME how bright MY future is.

Hope springs eternal, doesn't it?

Yes, yes, yes.
Someone told me once that it's not a matter of right or wrong, but right or left.

moving away from everything familiar would be both exciting and lonely.

I'm glad to hear there are some positive things and that you still felt it was a good decision.

Whoa! Once again, we missed WV:TG. Wah. I am filing an official complaint.:)

Complaints may be filled out at the front office. Go downstairs to the main lobby, take the Wonkavator to the Eleventeenth floor. Fill out form 409-C in triplicate. Go to the basement, turn left, third door on the top, slide the forms into the slot. (nevermind the shredder sounds)

Oooh, the Wonkavator! I've always wanted to ride the Wonkavator.

By the way, have you heard about the space elevator? I won't go skydiving (sorry, Brad), but I would like to go on the space elevator.
