Well, we finally have a moving date. We’re planning to pull out Friday, October 19th. When we moved from MI, it cost us dearly. Being a 13-hour drive in a car, you can imagine what it was like with a huge moving truck and three other vehicles. 🙂 We had to stretch it over two days. It cost around $1,000 just for the truck and gas. It was snowing, too. 🙂 This trip will be much easier. We think we can get there in around 7 hours, and it is only a fraction of the cost. And we’re not planning on having snow. The Reagans and some people from the church are going to help us unpack the truck the next day.
We’re so excited to be settled! Especially me. Women who are expecting babies usually go into a big “nesting” thing. I have been unable to do that for the entire six months. I’m ready to “nest.” I’m ready to sit on my own couch, cook in my own pots, sweep with my own broom, look into my own mirror, vacuum with my own…well, you get the picture. I’m ready.
We are just as excited about being church members again. Now don’t get me wrong. We have faithfully attended church all summer, just in different churches. It’s not the same as belonging. We’re ready to serve the Lord in “our” church. 🙂
So how is the baby? Well, he is kicking a LOT, and lately he has been finding it very amusing to stay under my ribs. I’m not sure if I like this. His name (in one book) means “full of personality.” Hmm…should I be worried? Things are going great though. Sometimes I still can’t believe it is real, but then I try to get off the couch and realize it is very real. 🙂 It’s amazing the things I didn’t think I would miss, such as breathing. But we are so, so thankful for our precious blessing, and we look forward to the day when we can hold him and see his face. 🙂 Please continue to pray. It’s not the greatest time to be moving and finding a new doctor and hospital, etc. I am nervous about it all. I don’t have much time to play with because I’ve already gone to two-week visits. But I know we are in the Lord’s will and He will work it all out.
I haven’t done great with the camera lately so I have no picture to post. I guess I’ll find out who is like me and hates to read posts without pictures! More to come!
