Letting the cat out of the bag

I have to be honest with you guys: I've been keeping a secret. I haven't washed my hair since Monday. Actually that's not it. I mean, that's true, but that's not The Secret. The Secret is this:
I'm moving.

I know what you're thinking. "But Juliette, you just announced this a month ago. We already know." I should probably phrase it differently: I'm moving again. When I told you a month ago that I would be moving in with my parents I told you I wasn't sure what the next step would be. Would I live on my own? With a roommate? Stay with my parents for a while? The truth is, I sort of knew what my next step was at that point, but it wasn't solidified so I didn't blog about it. But now my decision has been made and I'm ready to blast it all over the internet and let you all know something that's making me equal parts excited and nervous: I'm moving almost 300 miles away from my family so I can be closer to Keith.
When Keith and I started dating, we knew that if things got serious I would have to move down to his area eventually. Well, "eventually" is in three weeks. Twenty-one days. October 17th. It's still kind of hard to believe, but today I'm giving my boss my notice so I'm pretty sure that will make it seem waaaay more real.

I can't tell you how excited I am. We've never lived close enough to each other that I could say, "I'm coming over," and be there in under 10 minutes. We've always had to plan our weekends in advance and there's always been an "end point" to our visits that both of us would dread. But now? Now we can watch Jeopardy nightly so he doesn't have to have 25 episodes saved on his DVR that we have to binge watch when we're together. Now we can see each other in person instead of having to set up time to Skype a few times a week. Now I can get a cat and keep it at his house (he keeps telling me I can't but let's be real: I'm going to).

But I'm nervous. I'm nervous because I don't have a job. That's why I've been begging you for clicks (click click), because I'm going to be living off of savings until I find  something. I know I know, you're probably judging me for moving without a job, but you know what? It will work out. Things always work out, and I have confidence that this is the right decision.

To sum things up, basically I'm feeling the way Harry Burns felt on New Year's Eve.

    1. Hello everyone...

      I am Katie Jones by name currently living in Las Vagas, USA.. Am writing this letter because am really grateful for what Mr Austin George did for me and my family, when I thought there was no hope he came and make a way for me and my family by lending us loan, at a very low interest rate of 2%. I never thought that there are still God sent and genuine loan lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any amount i would like to recommend you to Mr Austin George the Managing director of Austin Loan Company because he is a God sent man that can change your life forever.... So if you really want to make a better life without any fund scarcity.... I would advise you to get in touch with him through this e-mail below :: { austinloancompany@yahoo.com }.

      Thanks. Katie

  6. Ohmygoodness! Congratulations! That is super duper exciting. When we up and moved to Nashville in 2011, it was absolutely terrifying but totally exciting at the same time; today, I am so very glad that we did it. Starting over in a new city is such a fun new adventure! Good luck!

  11. Beardy told me I couldn't get a cat too, the next day he went with me to adopt Warhol.

  12. Congrats and how exciting!! I know it sounds crazy, but my boyfriend and I both moved across the country for me to go to grad school and didn't have jobs lined up either. Luckily, we found something within a few weeks of being there. If anything, go ahead and put your new address on your resume so employers won't automatically toss your resume into the trash for not being from there!

  13. Congrats!! I'm excited for you...and Keith! I'm a firm believer in thing happening as they're supposed to. I just moved to California from Kentucky in June without having a job. But I found one and it's slowly but surey working out! Good luck with everything...remind me again which part of the state?

  14. Woohooo! That's so exciting and terrifying and amazing! It will work out. You'll find a job and make it work and it will be perfect.

  15. Hurray! I did the same thing when I moved to Pittsburgh to live with my guy. No job, no real money, no real plan... besides being in the same zip code. And it worked out beautifully! Good luck to yoooooooou.

  16. Yay! I'm excited for you! :) You'll find a job - I'm sure of it.

  17. SO EXCITING SO EXCITING SO EXCITING! NO MORE CLOSET COCKTAIL HOUR.

  18. A-MEN!! A job will come -- sooner rather than later. {And I mean ... if not, you could just become like ... a crazy cat lady or something ... they never seem to have jobs, and somehow sustain a life with their 50+ cats!}

    ReplyDelete
  19. That is so exciting! I LOVE that you took a leap without having a job in place. I know you'll find something! :)

  20. Moving for love is a great reason to move! I hope that you guys find a super cute place together (for your future cat and living with 2 dogs!! :D). Also on the plus side - you won't have to deal with passive aggressive "cuppa joe" at the office anymore! Maybe I'm missing something though, I'm just wondering why you wrote that as soon as things between you got serious, YOU'D be the one to have to move to his area. He wasn't even considering moving for you? That kind of sounds like a red flag... hopefully I'm misunderstanding.

  21. Very Exciting! Congratulations! Moving can be stressful, but also an exciting adventure.

  22. Whew! I'm glad that cat (and yes I'm referring to the cat you will be getting and keeping at Keith's house) is out of the bag! I'm so happy that you guys get to be in the same town with each other and that you don't have to spend your Friday nights driving 4 hours to see him! LOVE YOU <3 (also, always sign into gmail before you type a really long comment and hit save, this is my 2nd attempt. The first one was better....)

  23. OMG Congrats girly!! I was secretly hoping you'd make this decision so I'm all for it! And I will be clicking that little link57 times now just for you because when you know it's right, you make the move... regardless of money or jobs or anything else. I'm so happy for you!!

  24. I don't think this is a surprise at all and I'm so happy for you!

  26. Woohooooooo! So exciting!!!!!! CAn't wait to see it all come together for you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. YAYYYYY!!!!! Congrats!!!! And I know it's crazy-stressful, but it is TOTALLY do-able. I actually moved from Boston (where I had only been living for a year) to Chicago to be close to my then-boyfriend-now-husband. I moved with no job and straight into chaos (my first apartment's water pipes burst and I ended up having to move again a month after I got there. In the middle of winter). But it all worked out! :)

  33. I am posting on this site on how great Dr Brave help me bring back my wife ??

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in Texas,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com} , Thanks.
