An Announcement

I kind of don't want to post this because it's sad, but I'm also sort of excited about parts of it - and, anyway, I might as well just get it over with.

Aaron and I are moving to Chicago this summer. Aaron's accepted a new job, teaching math at Dominican University in River Forest, so we'll be living somewhere in the Western suburbs - probably Oak Park/Forest Park/Berwyn. So Aaron having a job = Yay! Getting to live in Chicago = Exciting! Not having to move that much further from our families = relief.

But, I'll be leaving the MissFits. I'm sad every time I come to practice now, because I know that's coming. The bout on the 28th will be my last home bout. I don't know where my new derby home will be - that will depend on exactly where we wind up living, and on the transfer policies of the various leagues in the area.

We'll probably be moving at the end of July, maybe a little earlier, if things go smoothly. So if you know anyone who wants to buy a house in Founder's Grove (or a 1997 Honda Civic), send 'em my way.

I'm going to keep practicing as long as I can, because I want to stick with derby. I dreamed of derby before the MissFits ever existed, so you literally made my dreams come true. You've made living here feel like home. I'm going to miss Bloomington because I'll miss the MissFits.

I may be MIA from time to time, between looking for a new home, getting our current house ready to sell, and one other thing....over Christmas, we found out my mother is suffering from Vascular Dementia. She's getting worse fast, and her prognosis isn't good (and she's really not capable of realizing it). So I'm also likely to spend an increasing amount of time traveling to help my parents out. Which is why I'm really glad we're not moving too far away from Indianapolis - and why I'm really glad I'll still have my derby sisters to come home to for a few more months. I love you
