what would happen if...?

I am very good at playing the "What would happen if" game.

You know, What would happen if we bought this car?

What would happen if we just dropped our car insurance, or health insurance?

What would happen if cars quit running and I was trapped in Dodge, and the kids were alone in Bucklin and the power also went out and cell phones didn't work and...and...

What would life be like if we'd stayed in Colby?

That's the question I've been asking myself for the past year. That and, "Did I make the right decision?"

Kev and I went back to Colby yesterday for the day. He was a guest lecturer for the PTA class, I went along to get a few things I'd left at the library and to see former colleagues and friends.

But it didn't feel like home anymore. And, after visiting with folks there, I just felt like we'd made the right decision in moving.

Oh, there are many things we miss (like customer service and our friends), but all in all, moving and changing careers has been good for my career, Kev's career, for our family lifestyle and for our kids.

Now if I could just answer those other pressing questions...
