The PTR!

I can imagine many of you are thinking “When did all of this happen?!” Yeah, I know. For those of you who followed moi on my last TR, I know I said nothing and kind of rushed the end (even though it took 7 months…) because I wanted it done just in case all of this happened. Seriously, we have been going nuts over just the past month deciding what we are going to do. We haven’t been planning everything for more than a few weeks.

So, I am going to do kind of a PTR for right now since nothing has happened yet. But next weekend is going to be ridiculous and hey I forgot to mention. We are going to Walt Disney World next weekend, but we will get more into that in a moment.

Like I have said (or at least I think I have), we have always been dreaming of moving to the Sunshine State. It’s just something we always wanted to do. And then Mum saw that her company she works for her is going to be opening a new building down in Florida and applied for two jobs there.

About 2-3 weeks later, Mum got a letter in the mail for a package to leave the company she works for.

And that is what pretty much caused us to say “hey let’s move to Florida!”

And let me tell you dudes and dudettes something. Mum NEVER gets a package to leave because of her job position. So this was kind of a surprise and she wasn’t even supposed to get a package in the first place! Mum ended up taking the package at the very last minute and she was freaking out. So was I.

So then the craziness began.

We tried to keep everything on the DL (not Disneyland) and I was pretty much dying every day cause um, hello, FLORIDA.

Mum has been going crazy trying to find a job in Florida and so far, three places (I think) have not wanted her. I mean, one of them offered an interview, but you had to start in the next two weeks and that is not possible at all. She has been thinking about getting a temp job (if she can’t get anything), but you actually have to live there first so we have to wait on that.
Mum still hadn’t decided on whether or not she was going to take the package… Oh, and she had 3 weeks to make up her mind.

We had a realtor come out. Our best bet would be to rent the place we leave in now because there is no way we can sell it. So that is the next step…

During all of this, we have been looking at schools for moi and places to live. As far as schools go, some of them have courses I would love to take including photography! Plus at one of them, THEIR MASCOT IS THE WILDCATS LIKE OMG. I WANT TO BE A WILDCAT. Ex-HSM fan over here!

Anyways…

As far as houses go, we have found some great ones and we have a realtor in Florida that is very honest, which is great. She is actually the second FL realtor we have had and this one is MUCH better. The other one was a poop and never wrote Mum back or anything and she gave us false information. Lovely, I know.

Our new realtor—and her name is Stacy!!!!!!!!—has checked out different areas for us and is very honest about her opinion on them and makes sure what we will best for us.

If you are wondering, we will be about 30 minutes north of Orlando. The Orange County school system isn't the greatest so we really didn’t want to live there because of moi. If it wasn’t for school, we would be closer, but a half hour is totally fine for me, and for mum.

And that leads us into our next part about when the crap we are going to go down to check out homes and such.

June 30th. 8 days from now. I mean, it stinks because that is the weekend of the New England DISmeet and we will miss Sunday’s events BUT WE ARE MOVING TO FLORIDA SO ITS ALL GOOD.

We leave at 8am on the 30th and get to MCO at 10:45. We have a rental car and we just need to figure out hotel and all of that. We know someone that has a condo in Florida and we might stay there, but not sure yet. And then we have no house showings on the 30th so that means DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then we are going back to Disney on the 2nd before our flight because it’s not until 9PM. WHAT WHAT. We are looking at houses all day on the 1st, so that will take up most of the day. But, since I REALLY want to see the July 4th fireworks that are lasting for a week (Limited Time Magic, dudes), we just MIGHT go that night to see them. SO DISNEY FOR MAYBE THREE DAYS!!!! AHHHHHHH. We are getting good use out of that AP, I have to say.

That is pretty much it for the PTR. The next chapter will be about next weekend, so just be patient!!!!

Now I will go pack some more.

And I just wanted to mention, you can follow moi on Twitter and Instagram for live updates, if you'd like.

That's all for now!

PEACE OUT!

I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR YOU.

Make sure you ask the realtor where the closest chick-fil-a is! THAT IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE. <3

ugh, I'm super jealous. Disney Disney Disney.

We will be there Aug 30-Sept. 4. Would love to see you !!

I think teenage correspondent is a fabulous idea !!

This is all so exciting. You HAVE to be thinking that this all happened for a reason. Your mother is so brave to do this. I am sure you are helping as best you can, but I bet she is super stressed. I know I would be.

Take lots of photos with your new camera while you are there !!

I can't wait to read what happens next.

Susan

Greatest idea ever! I will have to ask her.

I will let you know when it gets closer if we can come! I’m sure we will be able to!

Right?!

We are both very stressed trying to get everything done in such a short amount of time. It is very exciting, but crazy.

Take lots of photos with your new camera while you are there !!

OF COURSE I WILL!

I can't wait to read what happens next.

Susan
The DISmeet will be next!

I can't believe you guys are moving to Florida. My cousin lives in Tampa and she loves it. She is not a Disney freak, so I think that is a total waste and I should live there. Congratulations!!!!!! Have fun house hunting!!!!!

If this trip report ever ends, it'll be the most blatant case of fraudulent advertising since The Neverending Story. :P

For some reason I am looking forward to hearing the trials and tribulations of being a long distance landlord. At least you won't have to deal with any crazy tenants face to face!

It’s crazy, I know.
It is a total waste to live in FL if you don’t go to Disney and/or love Disney! Like no.
Thank you!

It should be interesting, to say the least.
