Change is good, change is great

There comes a time in life where making a change is an absolutely necessary thing that must take place.  Of course when major changes are about to be made resistance may be present. This resistance is expected and complicated (Damien is co-parented and it's less than ideal) . Needless to say, I'm happy to announce that we have relocated to the coast of Maine. This is such an exciting time for this family. Our current life wasn't measuring up to par. Trying to carve out a living in an area that is extremely remote and secluded with no employment opportunities available was starting to take a toll on every member of the family. That remote location had nothing more to offer than mediocre (at best) schools and zero opportunities for a young energetic family looking for stimulation. Having been born and raised in northern New Hampshire, I know first hand that Northern New Hampshire  has nothing to offer and that trying to raise children with so much potential there was very difficult and disabling.  I look at my children and know that I want to offer them much more than what I was offered. I want to give them much more than I was given.  I want a great education for them with a lot of opportunities for them to choose from. I want them to be able to live and not just exist in no man's land. I am looking forward to everything that comes along with this change. I am ready. We are ready.

This whole process took place almost flawlessly. We were able to land a wonderful place to live that is very close to the school that Damien attends with a jogging path, basketball court, baseball diamond, and a bunch of playgrounds. Damien is adjusting to his new school very well. It almost seems too good to be true.  But this family deserves something good. We've worked hard over the past several years to get our shit in order….in order enough for something like this to take place. I've spent 27 years of my life searching for something more…..and now I think I've found that more that I've been searching for. We are looking forward to new and exciting things in our new home, in our new town, in our new life. Hello Maine!

 Not much on the walls but…..
