It's been a while since we've moved...5 and 1/2 years to be exact. And I think things were a bit different then. First of all we didn't have nearly as much furniture and stuff as we do now, and second of all - we had no children. And third of all - Chad wasn't in Africa a week before we moved. It's much more crazy and stressful this time around! Last weekend we had a garage sale to try to cut down on the amount of stuff we have, since we're downsizing. It was a success! We made quite a bit of $, although it won't be enough to cover the cost of moving, like I had hoped. A big THANK YOU to my mom and dad who came out last Saturday to help us and to watch Graham. And today I finally got a chance to go scope out some rental properties and found the perfect one! We are applying for a lease. I hope and pray it will all work out, especially since Chad is leaving the day after tomorrow to go to Uganda for a week. I have been very busy packing for him and packing up items that the missionaries have requested for him to take. We are really going to miss him, but I know that this trip is really important for our family. In the craziness of the garage sale and the getting ready for Africa, I have not yet begun packing up our house to move in three weeks! Oh, did I mention that Graham and I started swim lessons on Monday?! I'm certainly not complaining about that though. It is SUPER fun and we are both loving it. I just have a lot piled on my plate right now.
Ahhhh, but there is a silver lining. We are going to the beach at St. Simons Island a week after we move for a week of relaxation and fun. I have a feeling it's going to be well deserved. :) Please pray that I can keep my head until then!
