I quit my job. We cancelled our apartment lease.
We are packing up all our stuff and moving north!
North as in far north. Above the polar circle. 68 degrees north to be precise.
I used to live there once, back in the days, before I became who I am now. And I miss it!
I miss the weather. The storms. Being blown off the sidewalk. I miss the rain. Not just any rain! But biting cold polar rain that surrounds you so you can’t hear anything else. I miss the midnight sun. I miss the aurora borealis. I miss the house shaking from a hurricane! I miss fishing. The ocean. Waves bashing against the shore. I miss fresh seafood. I miss sweet strawberries the size of apples!
I miss my family. I miss my mom's cooking. I miss my best friend! I miss cursing every third word. Not to be rude or obscene - but because that is just how it is up there!
And don't get me wrong - I LOVE Oslo! For 12 years now I have thought of myself as a city-kind-of-girl. But I am torn between one place and the other. So I think it's time to just jump into it and give it a shot! To live there again and to see how it goes. But I hope we are able to visit Oslo and the poeple we love here often and that the city will always be here to welcome us back if I should change our mind...
And what about Cas you say? What about the poor guy from Holland that already moved all the way to Norway? Well I'll tell you this - in all my life I have never met anyone as adaptable as him... He loves the idea! He just sees it as a big adventure and an opportunity and is more than happy to pack up his stuff yet again and move above the polar circle.
Pheeew - am I the luckiest girl in the world or what?! *swoon*
3 months and counting!
Lynette, you got the calimucho ready for our arrival?
