Mixed Emotions

February 18, 2013

The stress level could not be higher here.

We’re getting good traffic on the house, but still no offers. We are looking ahead to our move to the Northeast, and starting to shop for our new home. The kids are nervous–Mo man is so sad about leaving his friends and missing out on some great activities by leaving before the school year is over. Sigh. They are even having a “prom” for his kinder class. I could cry.

J and I alternate between hugging and screaming. With so much on our family’s plate it’s hard to do otherwise. He’s stressing the final hurdles that need to be jumped while exiting the military–physicals, PT tests, credentialing at the new job, tax season.  I’m trying to keep the house spotless and still take care of my family. And through it all, we are cramming in as much time with our friends as we possibly can.

We are leaving our comfort zone. I have a huge support network here. Women that I can call for anything–endless play dates and lunch dates. Ladies that I hope I never lose track of. I hate to go.

And then, we also have the excitement of a new adventure. The possibility that things will be even better than they have been for us here. New opportunities. Family close by. Four seasons. Lakes. Great schools. A house with green grass and potential for a big basement for the kids to run around in when they can’t play outside. Good stuff.

Bear with us.

It feels like the ride becomes increasingly bumpy as we get closer to the move.

Deep Breaths….

    Good luck with everything! I am so impressed with how you handle your full plate – always honest and dedicated to your family. And I think you’ll love your new home location!

    Thanks, Liz. It feels like a roller coaster right now 🙂
