We’ve actually known about this for several weeks now, but I have been reluctant to say anything online.
We’re moving again!
…and not the moving announcement I planned on sharing with you. Since October, we have been building a house in the metro area. We planned every ounce of the house, picked the lot, and loved every facet of it. The house was planned to be completed in April. I was waiting until the house was all completed and papers were signed to tell you about this huge blessing.
Then in early February, the hubs got a phone call. He was being transferred. Back to OK.
It’s really a good move for our family, and we are excited about what this means for the future, but it’s not without its own level of stress. I mean, I’m 23 weeks pregnant. Todd has to be in OK really soon. I have to figure out how to completely pack this apartment pregnant with an almost 3 year old. We have to find a place to live. We’re still trying to buy a house, which means we’re trying to buy a house from another state. We’re trying to not have to burden family for several weeks.
All on a deadline, because this baby is coming this summer. Like it or not.
I know it’s all going to be okay. We have broken our lease and we are waiting to see what happens next. We know that God has great plans — greater than what we can imagine.
This past week I have been going back and forth from Oklahoma, house shopping and trying to not go nuts. I have an appointment with a new doctor in OK, one that will support my VBAC journey and help me continue on this path.
Every move is bittersweet. I have made some very real friends since I’ve been back in Texas and I will miss them.
So, be patient with this blog and be praying for us for these next several weeks. I’m having a hard time feeling so defeated. I feel so overwhelmed and like I’m alone doing all this — especially since Todd won’t be able to help pack most of it and I don’t have my normal capacities right now!
Pregnancy makes me feel weak sometimes.
I know that the plans ahead of me are greater than what I can see right now. I know that. I’m just ready to see what they are!
… so we’ll be saying goodbye to you soon, Texas. I had just gotten used to you again, too.
