LIFE: Where I want to start over

Is starting over an option? 

I was thinking.  If I were to move to another town and "start over", would that be crazy?  I mean, what is so wrong with that?  Sure, I'd be a couple of hours away from my family and friends but 2 hours is easy.  Sure I would be in a whole new town which entails figuring out your way around and all that but that can be adventurous.  There would be new stores to shop in, new places to eat at and new things to do for fun.  I can explore a new city and that really does sound fun.  Work has been tough lately too.  Lots of issues and changes.  My job is OK I think as far as keeping it or whatever but lately, it's been tough to deal with.  The workload, the people, the constant drama.  Would it be so wrong to throw my pen down and walk out of my office? 

I don't know what is wrong with me but I sort of feel like doing something to shake it up.  I am feeling a little stagnant.  Did I spell that right?  Maybe I am just in a funk and need to snap out of it.  Maybe it's the weather?  Maybe once I see some green grass and flowers again I will feel better?  Who knows.  But in the meantime, I have 3 & 1/2 months to find a new place to live be it here or somewhere else.  Wish me luck.

Always wishing you luck.

I hit the reset button when I moved to DC in '96, and it was The Single Best Thing I Have Ever Done In My Life.

Where are you thinking about moving?

Well, I am still thinking about it and maybe a bit more after Kimmy's comment :) It may not actually be in 4 months, work issues may hamper this, but it's not out of the picture at all.

Cindy, as you know, I have always fancied the smaller towns. I am thinking East Texas. Tyler to be exact. It's smaller but still has all the amenities of a bigger town and it's pretty. So pretty there. Sheila is there so I already know someone. Bonus! And yes, whilst not the reason I am contemplating a move, Josh is closer. We can better work on us. And again, if he & I don't work out, I still have a friend in the town I like already. And? If I do it and decide I hate it, I can always move back to D/FW.
