Oh the Places I will go

You'll have to excuse me, I get a smidgen paranoid when it comes to divulging information.  I work with kids and have the utmost desire to protect these kids, so understand that I don't like to give out specifics on where exactly I'll be living, working, existing.  And it's all because of the kids.  (if you ask, you know I'll tell you, just not make it public)
But, moving I am -- to the North.  Not sure if you are aware of this, but in my heart, I am a Northern girl.  I was born in MA, lived for a short time in NH, and then was transplanted to S. Florida (which is in no way the South).  And throughout my life, I've supported my New England teams -- that's right - go Celtics!!!  I even cheered for the Pats when they were up against the Packers back in '96 and everyone thought I was crazy.  But, I'm a Northern girl -- except when it comes to the weather.  
I love the hot weather of Florida.  I love the fact that while living in Ft. Laud, I got to wear Gator embroidered boxer shorts and a t-shirt out on the driveway to get the Christmas morning newspaper.  We even lived without AC -- much to my mother's chagrin, but it cost too much to cool the house.  Honestly, I don't mind the 90 degree days, even when the humidity is hitting 1,000.  So, to move north, out of Florida, into the great unknown ... to me I feel like I'm moving to Canada.  
Maryland, I've been told, is lovely.  I've only had 1 person say they would never go back.  And that was simply because their car had been broken into multiple times.  I'll give them that, but the rest of the reviews have been stellar.  My eagerness does arise when I think about seeing the leaves change.  So, I'm getting excited, albeit only a little at a time because the moving process is a bit overwhelming. 
I really can't believe that a week from now I'll be waking up in Maryland for the first time.

It's all beginning!

My new blog to help my friends know all that I'm doing.  Moving in 6 days -- June 23rd.  The countdown has started.
