Holy crud the last month flew by and drug on forever all at the same time! When that happens I’m always surprised when the month ends and I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished very much. We’ve done a lot but at the same time we’ve been in limbo. Typical with any kind of move I suppose but it’s been seven and a half years since we moved here and I forgot what it was like.
This is the first move since we’ve been married that I haven’t had a newborn or been 9 months pregnant so in some ways it feels easier. The last time we moved Colby hadn’t had a stroke so we didn’t have medical equipment and an entire cupboard full of medication. We sign the papers on the house tomorrow but the moving company hasn’t even done their walk through yet. That will come tomorrow evening. We had originally planned for them to come next week to pack us up and move us but maybe we’ll see if they can come sooner.
The big issue is once Colby’s equipment and medicine go, he and I have to sleep at the new house. I can’t have the movers pack up his stuff because he needs oxygen, his feeding pump, his food, his oxygen sensors to monitor his oxygen and heart rate. Tomorrow we figure out the best way to do all that and go from there.
The next few weeks will be a little crazy. I honestly think short moves are much more difficult than moving several states or even hundreds of miles. This is the second time I’ve moved a mile or less away and it’s always a challenge to figure out the best way to do things. I’m hoping that everything will go smoothly and that we’ll have started getting stuff moved over by my birthday this weekend. Did I forget to mention that I’m totally considering this the best birthday present ever? Well last years present of taking John home from his second brain tumor resection was a pretty fantastic day too but I knew that chemo and radiation would soon take over and I wasn’t really looking forward to that. John has finished his chemo and hopefully this next year and many more will be cancer free. So that means I’m hoping we get to move in, get settled and enjoy some good health for awhile.
In honor of all that is going on I joined a big giveaway that will open on the 3rd. I don’t get to enter but I hope one of you will win the big prize and have fun spending what I can’t. That’s all I’ve got to say about it. To find out what the big prize is head back on over tomorrow morning and get entered! Good luck!
