I understand your fears, Samurai, I have been in your position also. My husband and I have moved four times in the last four years, due to changes in the job and real estate markets. And I am the one that experiences depression when I am without our support systems of family and friends. It's a very real worry. And you are so thoughtful to be looking down the road to see how it feels for each of you.

You are right to know that you need to touch base with things and people that make you feel like you as often as you can. Especially in this time of transition. I am so glad you found a buyer for your property and are looking for a new home. Keep the momentum moving forward, even when there comes a day if either of you don't feel like it. And when that day comes? Go visit. Get back to you, again.

And small things help, too. When I am feeling down, I make my dad's spaghetti. It fills the house all day with a scent that makes me happy, and it's warm and filling for dinner. Perhaps there are a few things like that -- a favorite meal, a DVD of a movie you both loved back then -- that will help this interim time go by even faster.

Good luck to both of you. I love hearing about your journey.
