Yes, you have read right we have a move in date... Okay, well a tentative move in date of August 9. WOW! We were not planning on moving into our new house until after the first of September, but we did receive the call last week to plan for meeting with Andrea from OHF and someone from Chase on the 9th at our new house! To say we are excited and a tad overwhelmed would be a bit of an understatement at this point. Of course, as we all know things could change, pushing the date out a bit. Which, Kevin and I would be just fine with either way because how could we not? We are so appreciative over everything.
From now to then there is quite a bit that has to be done around the house from sorting to packing to even getting rid of things. The girls and I have less than two weeks before we head to Atlanta for a week. I have a conference with Thirty-One the first few days of August, so before that the girls and I are going to hang our with family and I have a couple parties scheduled for the weekend before the conference. Following conference, we are going to head back to Mena and spend a few days cleaning, packing, loading saying our "see you laters" to the wonderful people we have become friends with and some that we now look at as family and of course see Aunt Jeanette and Grandmama before we leave, then hit the road to Macon, GA...
We are very excited about what the future holds in our new home, but we are really torn with leaving everyone here. This has become "home" to us and we really do not want to leave without Aunt Jeanette and Grandmama beside us. Though, we promise we will be visiting Mena quite often. Thank you to all that have made the past almost 9 months so amazing as you have! You have helped us in many more ways than you could ever imagine.
Over the next few days, I will be on the phone making all moving arrangements and having medical records transferred through the VA and researching doctors for the children and me. I will also be busy with getting everything in line for this move before my trip to GA. Luckily, we have done this QUITE a few times, so this really isn't that bad. Haha.
Kevin and I went to the Ford dealership out here the other day and decided to trade his Tahoe in for something newer and more dependable. To say he has been like a kid on Christmas morning would not at all explain his excitement for a new truck! Kevin is beyond thrilled to have a truck again and to have the one that he has been wanting for awhile. We are now proud owners of a 2006 F250 Super Duty. I have to admit - I absolutely LOVE it!!!
