It's Always Something!

Hmm, Well maybe I was wrong about everyone having their own definition of happiness? Maybe everyone agrees with the dictionary definition? That's what I'm assuming since not one person commented on my last post? *teh*

Anyway, have a lot going on here. My husband's family is having problems. His uncle died two weeks ago from cancer. Now his aunt (the two used to be married but are not divorced) is in the hospital ready to die from cancer. She had surgery the day after her ex husband's funeral and was told that her body was so riddled with cancer that she has mere weeks to live. She was released from the hospital yesterday only to return a few hours later with a blood clot inches from her heart. Two years ago their thirty something year old daughter died from cancer. Cancer is a very scary thing and it actually has me thinking about my own family. My mom's biological mother went through the same thing of being opened up for surgery only to find her body filled with cancer. There was nothing they could do so they stitched her back up and she died mere weeks later. The same thing could happen to my mother or ME. I'm not exactly a spring chicken anymore. I will be 32 in a few weeks (don't remind me!).

On a more positive note, I think we are going to be moving! There is a beautiful house that will be available soon in my hometown and I want it! It's a two story three bedroom, 1 1/2 bath house with a 2 car garage. All hardwood floors. The living room is huge, the dining room is huge, the bedrooms are huge, the bathroom upstairs is huge, a screened in back porch, fenced in back yard, a re-done basement and it even has a little office room upstairs with a built in desk that would be just PERFECT for my work and school work! My husband is not too happy about it though. He has been fighting me on it. He doesn't really like my hometown and it would be further for him to drive to work. I made a list of the pros and cons about moving and there were only 3 cons and like 20 pros but he still is not convinced! He knows how badly I want this and how much better of a place it would be. The kids would have soo much more room, not to mention a big fenced in back yard to play in! One of the most important things for me about moving is that I would have friends close around. I think that is really what I need right now. I think that would make a HUGE difference for me. I would have friends go talk to. I could get out of the house more and do more things. I wouldn't feel caged up like I do here because I don't know anyone here. Our kids would have other kids to play with. I really think it would be good for our marriage, too because I think that I would be happier! I told him the other night that I'm moving with or without him.. so I think he is convinced that we are moving (and he refuses to let me go without him). The house still has a lot of things to be fixed so it wont be ready to move in to until May 1 so if all goes well I will be spending the majority of April packing! I've never been so excited to move before!
