So, earlier this week I was thinking I'd make a post pretty soon about my family unit's plans to move up to Ohio from Georgia. We'd picked out a place to live and had a laundry list of things to get squared away between now and August 2. However, that post is not going to happen anymore, because...
I received a call from Ben and Jonah's mom this morning that went something like this:
B&J's Mom: When is your lease up in Ohio?
Me (not sure why she would ask such a question): Probably a year. Why?
B&J's Mom: We're planning on moving to Savannah, Georgia. Not in the next month or so, but sometime. I could wait for your lease to be up.
Me: How serious are you about moving?
B&J's Mom: Pretty serious. I've already applied for some jobs.
Me: We haven't signed anything yet. So if your're serious, we're not moving up to Ohio.
The conversation was probably a little more twisty-turny than this, but it basically sums up what we discussed. The whole purpose of moving up to Ohio was to be closer to the boys; so if they're ultimately moving to Georgia, then we're not moving to Ohio--only to move back down to Georgia. No way.
So, the big move to Ohio that was postponed last year because of several unexpected medical issues is this year possibly completely canceled because of relocation issues. Since Tammy and I had psyched ourselves up for Ohio, we're both a little bummed. But we both love Georgia and the Atlanta area. The main thing is just having the family unit together.
Plus, we're glad the Savannah relocation plan made it to us before we'd signed a year lease and put down a deposit for the house we'd found in Kettering, Ohio. That would've made things a lot less pleasant.
But let's talk about pleasant things. Earlier this week, one of my poems was accepted for publication in a future issue of MiPOesias. I'm totally excited about that.
Also, one of my poems was recently posted in the Open Mic section of the Poets for Living Waters project. Click here to read the poem "swallowing air," which is between poems by Sean Burn and Edward Byrne.
Speaking of my poems for 2010, I've got a lot to post here. I've been writing and will get this blog up to date as soon as I finish two big projects that I hope to have finished by my birthday on July 18th (when I'll be turning 32!).
Outside of that, I guess not much has been happening that I can remember. I love this song "Paper Romance" song by Groove Armada off their Black Light album. Click here to check it out.
