New Year, New Beginnings

I have started this blog a few times but don't know exactly how to write all of this so I am just going to go with a whole lotta random!

The New Year is bringing lots of changes for the boys and I.

I am coming stateside on March 7th till the 14th.  I fly into NYC and am going to rent a car to drive to PA and NC.

I am coming stateside to apply to school in NC where I plan to move to this summer.

I have put my car for sale and I am working on getting my apartment put on the market in the next few weeks.

This move is something the boys and I all want.  It is great to be here with my family but I don't feel like I belong here in Iceland.  I don't feel like I am home.  I have been trying to live here but I know I can't.

I was going to go to school here in Iceland but I have six thousand hurdles to jump and I have decided that learning in the states where I get to learn in English is better anyway.

Why NC??  That is the boys' number one choice because we have friends that live there that they are very close to and they want to live by them.  I love this tiny little town and would love to raise my boys there.  We have friends there so it is not like we are going somewhere where we don't know anyone.

So there you have it!!  I am going to be moving stateside most likely in June (nothing has been finalized yet) and we are most likely moving to NC.

OKay...I don't Tweet, but I'm reading your Twitter updates, so I'm pretending I tweet...you applied to school already? How cool is that???? What great person are you conversing with on the phone? (See? NOW who's being nosey???) When you get to the states, get a Verizon phone...then we can talk for free...
