I had made a post recently on one of the forums stating I was considering moving "home" to Virginia from South Carolina. I had started looking around and applying for jobs up there. Well apparently once the ball starts moving it doesn't stop. I have found a house and I will be starting a new job!
My head is spinning and I still feel like I need to schedule a nervous breakdown. However, I haven't seen my kids so excited in months. We will be a mile from family and have a house instead of an ancient trailer (the plan was to rehab it while living it, so not happening now). We can continue our sustainable living journey in our new little house that will be dry and well insulated.
The biggest obstacle is not even my fear of doing it anymore. It is swinging the cash now. While in Virginia this past week my van broke down. I have managed to get back to South Carolina to pack and tie up loose ends here. I can manage with the help of friends to get around town and pick up a u haul truck next weekend. Did I mention this is moving so fast!
I just have to figure out the rest of my funding. This is moving so fast I am not sure which end is up at the moment. I am feeling more confident than I have since March and I can't get over how thrilled my kids are. My 13 yr old has actually started packing her room and going through things. We are going to downsize to just what we have to have and then have fun decorating our new home. My dad has been worrying himself sick and is now feeling better because he will be able to see all of his grandchildren daily. My oldest and dearest friend, who has been ill, will be closer so I can help her when she needs it.
Sorry I think I am wired and just rambling now. It is nice to know that this kind of insanity is understood by some. I think it is time though to grab a shower and wash travelling dirt off and snuggle with the kids. So many shows on the DVR to catch up on from our week away.
Light, Love and Peace!
