So, um, we're moving to Pennsylvania.

Charles got a job as web applications developer at Lafayette College, and he starts on April 16th, and I am totally thrilled and excited because it's a great job with great people and a way better salary -- like, embarrassingly better -- and oh my God I have so much crap to do before we can move, I already took an entire carload of stuff to Goodwill and there's more waiting and I have to contract with a mover and a realtor and I've never lived anywhere but the Midwest and I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS.

But yeah. Charles is amazing and awesome and people want to throw money at him and treat him like a rockstar. And I get to come too!

Congratulations to Charles on his new job! Moving's a **** however you cut it, but believe me: they're not aliens in Pennsylvania or anything. (Well, I'm not convinced about scrapple and TastyKakes, but otherwise they're perfectly normal.) You'll do as well there as you would in any other part of the country.

ohmygosh, Congrats to Charles!

I'm going to miss your house. Oh, and what does Micro-kitty say about the move?

(just don't become Eagles fans or something...).

Welcome to the neighborhood. Well, larger neighborhood, since I assume you're going to opt for housing up near the school.

Still, it's not all evil here. ;-)

(Granted, I say this as someone who only lived Not-On-A-Coast once, when I was in upstate NY, and I about died there. Still, you're far enough out, up there, that if you want to mimic a midwest life, you should be able to with relative ease.)

I'm glad that you're happy about the move. Congratulations to Charles of course. Congratulations to the both of you. <3

That's awesome! I'm so happy for you both. :-) And you'll be closer to me. We can drink wine and yell at football.

Congratulations & welcome to the neighborhood (I can say that legitimately because my parents live exactly 20 minutes from Charles' fancy new job according to Google Maps)! Go the the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival at LaSalle this summer, it's lovely and I miss it. Also, you will have Wegmans instead of Meijer for your large grocery store needs and I am super jealous. And Justin & I can see you whenever we manage to visit my parents too!

OMG, you are moving to MY STATE. To a corner of it I actually know pretty well, too. To the home of Crayola Crayons!

Sending very best wishes and hugs.
