Move-Aways and Give-Aways

This winter weather is getting excruciating. Last night my mom, my sister and her fiancee, my nephew, Brody and I went to the Gateway Mall, which is an outdoor mall. We were walking from Applebees to the parking garage and it was only a 5 minute walk, but my hands swelled up, my feet started to swell and I started to have a hard time breathing. The more and more this Urticaria starts to show itself the more and more I start thinking that we have to move. We need to move. I can't be in pain like this when it gets below 30 degrees around here. I want to go to the grocery store without feeling like a balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade by the time I grab a cart and head in. I keep telling Brody that I'm serious about the move. I don't want to be away from our families. I would love for our kids to be close to their aunts and uncles and grandparents. I would love to stay here where our friends are. But I need to be healthy. I need to feel comfortable where I live. I have to put myself first sometimes and in this case, my health needs to come first. I think Brody and I haven't made a decision carved in stone yet because, we have no idea how to go about moving to a different state. Last time I moved to a new state, I was like 5. All I had to worry about was if my mom packed enough juiceboxes for the car ride. And our finances, UGH THE FINANCES! We still have so much to pay off, it would be dumb to move out of state with all our debt right? How do you look for a job out of state and how do you look at renting a place out of state and what about Taffy? She didn't do well driving from Brigham City to Centerville, which is about a 40 minute drive, how will she do with a ten hour drive and what do we do about her going potty? It's all too much for me to think about. And I could say to myself that we have time but I am a planner. I like to plan things so hard they are sore. Our lease is up the end of August, should we move then? Should we wait? Should I go through another winter being swollen and in pain? Can I go through another winter in pain? Should I HAVE to? 
The good thing out of all this craziness is...Brody got a new job. We are thrilled. THRILLED! He starts next week. I have a realllllllly good feeling about this job. And although we have a ton of questions that need to be answered, I think that this is the year that everything just comes together. I'm so happy for him too. He has worked SO hard, since the day I met him, and now it's finally starting to pay off. I am so proud of him. I can't think of anyone who is a better life partner than he is. He is a wonderful provider for our home, and he is my best friend. 

In other news....I am getting ready to put up my NYMB Facebook Fan Page! Just waiting for a time I can get pictures done, and have a day I can actually do it. And we have a week and a half for me to get 60 more followers on Twitter so someone can win that $40 visa giftcard! So if you haven't followed me yet...get to it! When the FB fan page opens up we'll have an awesome giveway too soooooo look out for that. 
In conclusion (heehee that sounds professional) if anyone can give me some advice about this whole moving thing PLEEEEAAAASSSSSEEE comment or message or tweet me. I would greatly appreciate it!
