I've also realized that the concept of moving is a lot more exciting than actually moving. You spend the months prior to moving planning, and researching, and thinking...only to have the moving day actually come and you realize you are totally freaked out and as you drive all your entire belongings and earthly possessions in a 17-ft Uhaul truck across the country to a place where you don't know a soul. It's a little frightening when the reality hits.
Yes, I am a little scared...but the truth is, I am actually excited too. I'm not excited for moving in 110+ degree weather or paying double for rent and utilities, but the rest should be an adventure. It's true that I have NEVER actually seen or visited the place I'm going to spend the next year+ of my life in, so that is also a little disconcerning. What if everyone I trusted in Vegas was totally lying to me and the place is completely trashed. Or what if the pictures that I found online that I assumed were picture of a similar unit, are actually entirely wrong and not even close to what I've pictured. Or what if I'm actually right on the strip with the girls and the casinos and gambling and nasti-ness. Or what if my neighbor is as nightmare-ish as my current neighbors...singing at the top of their lungs with surround sound speakers at all hours of the day. Or what if for some reason Mike and I are not allowed to swim in our pool and we are both extremely hot and pale. Disasterous!
I guess we'll find out soon enough because regardless of all these potential disasters, in 4 days we will make our journey to Las Vegas, "sin city," and make it our new home.
