moving countdown: t minus 24 days

update to my moving list--today I broke the news to my parents. Honestly that was one of the hardest things I have ever done, and I'm totally drained now. Both of them took it much better than I expected. My dad actually said good for us and that he was happyfor me. My mom basically said she would not choose this for me but it's my life and that that's all she had to say about it. I suspect a day or two of thinking about it will have her trying to talk me out of it, so I'm prepared for that.

In the meantime, I'm trying to be nice to myself, I'm proud for following through on it, and trying not to drive myself crazy wondering if we got the dream place. We should know tomorrow.


  1. Wow, that's actually a very calm reaction from your mom considering your earlier worries. And a bit of a reverse from the usual reaction people have when given "bad" news - most people usually try to talk you out of it first before saying that it's your life.

  2. It was an extremely calm reaction and freaked me out a bit more than yelling or sobbing or guilt-tripping. But I imagine this was a big bombshell and she'll need some time to process it, and when she's had that time, she might try to talk me out of it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
