07:07 pm: I love this house
I know honey. Mommy loves this house too.

Why do we have to move?

Because we want to live someplace with good schools, and we wanted a bigger house.

But this is home!

Yes it is. The new house will feel like home soon too, because home is where your family is.

What's a family?

Mommy and Daddy and Teddy are a family.

All three of us?

Yep.

Why don't we have lots and lots of kids?

Because we got you. We got lucky and got you.

Where did you get me?

At the hospital.

Can we have ice cream, please?

:phew: Not quite ready for that conversation yet.

It feels weird to know this is our last night in this house. I've lived here more than 13 years. When I bought the house, I never thought I'd be married or have a child (or work in downtown Boston, for that matter). After living in Florida for two years, I appreciated Boston far more than I ever did growing up in the area. I love this city, love living here, love being near my family and friends.

:sniff:

Current Location: Boston for one more night
Current Mood: excitedsad, but excited

And your Boston-based friends love having you here AND we (or rather at the very least, I) appreciate that you're becoming a vacation destination and representative of the "West o' Wuhsta" part of the state.

Have a great move!

I love you. And your family.

And I'm going to miss you terribly.

You won't be far away, but you won't be 7 miles from my house.

*heavy heart*

We're not moving far, and we are A Destination - I expect VISITS. SOON and OFTEN.

I also expect to be in Boston at least once a month. And we have unlimited local and long distance on our land line. And I will rarely be far from the 'puter. (Shocking, but true.)

heart and otherwise. It's gonna be tough to have you so far away! . . . and with all your wonderful friends planning to visit, we're glad you have a bigger house!

We figure we'll have 3-4 guest beds: the actual guest bed, Teddy's bed (after we convert it), the sleep sofa, and the futon. Plenty o' room for plenty o' guests. :)
