How’d we get here? We moved into said apartment a few months after my husband was offered a lead on a potential promotion through a job transfer. It was a fantastic opportunity that he was really excited about, but I confess that after he first told me about it, I think I lost about 3 nights’ worth of sleep. All night my eyes would stay wide as saucers, their gaze glued to the ceiling while I tried to fathom this concept that was so different from the newlywed life we’d imagined. It’s not that it was a bad concept; it was just so radically and completely different. It involved sacrificing comfortable ideas, and it involved a very, very big cross-country move to a city that made the largest city I’d ever lived in look like an anthill.
