Since March 12, 2008, a good part of my life has been predicated by cancer treatments in 2008 and reconstructive surgery in 2009. I am slated to have my final surgery the first part of December, which means I can close out the cancer chapter of my life along with the end of this year.
Which leads me to thinking, where do I go from here? I believe I'm due for a change of scenery. I've lived in Connecticut for almost 14 years. As much as I love the spring, the summer, the fall, I absolutely hate the winters. Like my friend Maggie said to me this morning: "You might as well live in freakin' Minnesota!" She said that knowing I left there at 18 because I hated the winters in Minneapolis. Maggie left Connecticut a year and a half ago for Juno Beach, Florida, and just closed on a house in West Palm Beach, which she will move to this week on Halloween.
I'm starting to develop a plan. I know I can transfer anywhere in the United States through my job. Many of my friends and family are living in Florida. I think it's time for me to return. But first I have to sell my townhouse--no easy task. Then I have to look into getting transferred.
Next year, I'm going to work on relocating. After all I've been through, I think the change will be good for me. It's time to start a new chapter.
Maggie, here I come!
