We traveled to Rhode Island shortly after Hannah's surgery. Not great timing, but we had to do what we had to do. My mom watched Hannah and did a great job of caring for my sickly little girl, but it was so hard to be away from her for so long. I had never been away from her for this long before. While in Rhode Island we looked at well over 40 houses and ended up finding one we liked, putting an offer on it, and having the offer accepted before we got on the plane to fly back home to Indiana! It was a crazy, but productive 5 days.
The past two days have been insanely busy as we finish up the final tasks related to selling our current home and moving. The movers come to pack up the house on Wednesday and load the truck on Thursday and then on Friday, one week from today, we begin our journey East. We'll have to go to a temporary apartment for about two months before we can close on our new house, so most of our stuff will be in storage since the apartment is furnished. I'm concerned about how Hannah will handle not one, but essentially two moves in two months. Right now she's pumped for the adventure and can tell anyone who asks her about how first we'll live in an apartment that will have a pool and a shower and then we'll move to our new house, but the reality I'm sure will be harder for her to adjust to. Please pray for us that we all make it through the ordeal unscathed and relatively in tact!
