We have to move in July. It is a bummer of epic proportion, because surprise, surprise, Blitzen doesn’t like change and neither does Carrie, really, plus I love our home now. And we’re pretty certain that Blitzen has never moved and not had it associated with major drama and loss.
So we’ve begun gently laying the groundwork for the move with Blitzen. We will most likely stay in roughly the same neighborhood so we can still be close to Nana and the girls as well as all of our favorite neighborhood spots. In response to the discussions about where we might live in the future, Blitzen asked the following questions this weekend:
1) If we were going to move, could we please move to North Carolina to be near Andrew’s family — answer = no, sadly it is too long a commute
2) If we move to a new house, could we have a backyard — answer = probably not because we live in Manhattan and are not millionaires but we can look for outdoor space
3) If we move, could we choose a house with a purple room for her — answer = it probably will not purple when we get it but we can paint it purple when we move in
4) Lastly, who will take care of Blitzen if we move –answer = Carrie and Andrew will continue to take care of Blitzen.
As usual, she buried the lede.
