Well, we're heading off on our cross country trip tomorrow. It's been exhausting and extremely busy since my last post, and I apologize for the lack of updates. Between finishing up at work and training my replacement, cleaning the house, organizing, running errands, and all the miscellaneous things associated with the move, I've been going nonstop.
Just a few updates - everything is set for the new house and closing is in a week and a half. We're headed out tomorrow and we'll be stopping in Illinois to visit Jason's family. Then we're stopping in Charleston to do a final inspection on the house, spending the weekend with my family, and then closing on the new house and moving in!
I thought I'd be glad to leave the area but it is actually bittersweet. Surprisingly, I had a hard time leaving work (who knew?) and I will greatly miss my co-workers and some of the wonderful people I worked with. I'll also miss Central Market, having a Starbucks on each corner, Taco Del Mar, Red Robin, and Trader Joes. The snow and winter weather is something I'll probably never experience again.
So all in all, it hasn't been a bad ride!
Please pray for our safety during our drive. We're headed through some bad weather. I'll update you when we reach the other side!
