So it is decided. We are moving to Texas, going home finally after 13 years. I am so excited. We had an awesome trip last week and the area really is doing well despite the economy. Don has a job and two interviews to go back to next week and I have two interviews set up for property management jobs. I am so stoked to be going home.
I wish it were easier getting there though. We looked into so many options for getting us and our stuff back to Texas and decided the best course of action for us would be to sell our big stuff (two tv’s, the bed, the freezer) and to give away a bunch of misc. stuff so that we are only moving the most important stuff. We are going to load what we can in the Camry and put the rest of the stuff on a pallet, shrink wrap it, and freight it to Texas (most cost-effective way to get what little possessions to Texas). Before we leave we have to put a new battery in the Camry (done) and new windshield wipers (done) and new tires – at least three, and an oil change, and have the money for food and gas for the trip and maybe some food for when we get there, and pay for the freighting of our stuff. Notice the last few are not marked as done… that is where the stress comes in. I would feel so much better if we had the money in the bank to just take care of these things but we don’t. So we are just waiting for our big stuff to sell so that we have the money to make the trip.
I am trusting God that he will make the trip possible. I really believe that our future is in Texas and that it is where we are supposed to be, so I will keep packing, keep giving stuff away and believe that we will sell the big stuff and we will make it safely home.
I am tired. Just whipped exhausted and I get to get up and do it all over again tomorrow. Thanks for letting me ramble. I feel better.
