When my husband got a promotion at work it required him to move.
I was devastated when we had to pack up and move to Glenview, Illinois.
We had lived in South Carolina for years and had a house. I was really upset to move to a city that had basically nothing to do. If I wanted to see a movie, watch a show or eat at a nice restaurant, it was at least a 30 minute car ride. I was also angry at the weather. It is cold all the time in Illinois. The only redeeming thing was that the cold doesn’t dip into the negatives. The summer season was virtually non-existent too. Basically a month of barely 80 degree weather. It took awhile, but now I like the area. Our house really helped me. In South Carolina the houses were right on top of each other. If I wanted to garden in my bikini top, my neighbor was right there. In Glenview we were able to get a giant backyard that is totally private. The kids can play and make noise without bothering anyone. My husband walks around in his undies and I can run in a sports bra. It is so quiet too. I thought I would miss city life but I am used to being in silence. There is virtually no crime and the cost of living is quite low. I have a new appreciation for winter sports and heating systems now. Our house now has heated flooring in every room and that has really changed things. Feeling toasty warm inside helps me deal with the outdoor chill.
