Moving a family halfway across the country comes with a multitude of emotions.
Bringing boxes home made it feel real. I have gone from "This is a great idea!" to "This is real! It's really happening!"
There isn't much I can do yet so, bring on the lists. What I need for the trip, what to pack in the truck, what to pack in the car, what to get rid of, different rental locations, job searches.
For the most part, I think we all are ready for the next stage of our lives. Once you know something is right, it's hard to wait around for it to begin.
I have found a vet, groomer, and kennel for Gypsy. Not that I plan to use the last one often but I decided every option should be prepared for. I have even started the process for substitute teaching! They really require a lot from subs. It's nice to see a school system that has testing for its substitutes. I am looking forward to the process.
I think this year is going to be exciting, challenging, and strengthening.
Easy? It's never easy!
