Really Happening

So it's official. We're moving.

I mentioned last summer that we were seriously considering moving, and I haven't talked much about it here since. But it's been highly discussed in this household, and yesterday we crossed a big road: a group of (hopefully responsible) guys signed a lease to live in this half of our duplex as of September 1st. So legally speaking, we've gotta get out of dodge by that date.

I talked about the pros and cons on this post, and they are still pretty accurate. Overall though, I am excited to move and I think it's the right decision for our family. The upcoming process of making it all happen is overwhelming, but it'll work out. And hopefully we won't have to do it again for awhile.

Another thing that is making this feel more like a reality is that earlier this week I mailed in a registration form for Katy to attend preschool next fall. I cannot tell you how I agonized over this decision (even though it was both Brian's and mine to make). I was having some serious heart struggles with the whole thing. But we did it, and we picked a place that is up in the area where we plan to move. So without knowing the area super-well, we researched it and picked a school that I hope will be a positive experience for her. *sigh* This could (and will be) another post.

So I guess this begins what I'm sure will be a string of OMG-WE'RE-MOVING!-related posts. Enjoy!

Boo hoo... once you go to that library up there we'll never see you again.

Wow, best of luck! I'm sure it will be an exciting ride.

I'd love to hear more about your preschool debate. I'm VERY torn about the whole issue and am currently at a stand still. Maybe I need to blog about that.

Congrats! I am excited to read about your preschool decision as that's something we're considering for our son.

I'm excited for you but sorry too - we'll miss you.

Preschool will be fabulous. She'll make friends and play games and learn from her peers. I really do think that it's been a positive thing for Jack, even if it breaks my heart every morning. Dropping off is horrible! I'm much rather "pick up" but that's Craig's job. Anyway, Jack was potty trained at 2, knows all his basic words/colors/numbers, interacts really well with other kids and gets to do karaoke & yoga - definitely not two things I do with him!!!

Wow, that's exciting! Happy house hunting!

Very exciting...also stressful but I will keep good thoughts that your house hunt goes well & that things fall into place :)

It's such a great time to be buying a house if you don't have the worry of one to sell. It is wonderful that you can go looking now without worrying what you'll do with your place.

And how dense am I? I don't think it ever registered that you were in a duplex and I've been there!
