Life these days finds me trying to stay calm and collected. We're in the last three weeks of our time in this house, and I can hear the clock ticking down to our departure. Moving to Ft. Wayne is going to be a big change for our family, and although I'm really excited and happy about it.. I'm also nervous and apprehensive about the stresses and challenges that come with making a big move. I won't be sharing a house with anyone anymore, and while that definitely has its advantages I'll probably miss the comforting knowledge that there are other adults in the house with me. Not to mention my dad's help with cooking meals. :)
|My goal to potty train this kiddo before our move was accomplished much quicker than I expected. He now only uses a diaper during nights and naps. I can't say enough for elimination communication.|
I might miss the small town feel.
I might miss having my mom a bike ride away.
I might miss sharing a room with my babes. (What?!)
I might miss my colorful walls.
I might miss taking pictures on our absent neighbor's porch.
I might miss our church here and the sweetheart friends I've made there.
I might wish I still lived close to Courtney when life settled down and I was in my own home and I wasn't embarrassed to have her over. (Yes, you Mrs. Bell.)
BUUUUUT. I know lots of more exciting things are coming that I can't name yet. Pray for us, if you like: that we would have joy and peace throughout this whole moving process and as we get settled. That we wouldn't mind eating rice and beans and bugs for a month or several while we rebuild financially. That we find would friends soon. That my plants won't mind the move. ...And anything else nice you can think of.
Whatever you do, please come visit us sometime.
