I Am Tired

Whew, have the last couple weeks been crazy, or is it just me?

Just me?

Okay, that's what I thought.

So, it's really happening. The move, that is. I've been running on about 4 hours of sleep a night for the last couple weeks, and I'm officially a zombie. Call me when the apocalypse comes.

But really, I'm glad it's almost over. The truck is loaded and packed with our Nissan being towed behind it, and it's on its way (along with my hubs and two baby boys) to Utah. They are driving through Iowa right about now.

Our house is cleaned, polished, and scrubbed to the max (we do want that deposit back after all!) and the keys have been turned in. In fact, new tenants will be moving in tomorrow. Crazy?! Yes... Yes, it is.

The three older children and I have been staying with some dear friends this week. We finished up piano lessons, girl scouts, soccer, and tomorrow, school. It has really been a whirlwind. I'm almost relieved that it's close to being over, but it's still not quite real yet. We have spent the week saying goodbye to wonderful friends, and I was able to squeeze in several last minute clients (I did 9 people today alone. Sheesh!)

It's really happening. And I am very excited. But also very sad. The term bittersweet puts it perfectly. I'll be running some last minute errands in the morning, packing up our car, picking up the kids from school, and we will be off. Off to the mothership.

I will always hold a special place in my heart for VA and the truly wonderful people here whom I will miss dearly. I have grown immensely, but I now feel prepared and ready to face whatever the future may hold for us. Bring it on.

Utah.... Watch out. We're coming back.

We're happy to have you back but I know you've loved it there. Bittersweet indeed. You are so brave to drive cross-country! Kind of reminds me of that time Rach, your dad, and I drove to Vegas to meet you and bring you the rest of the way home. Remember that? good times...

A.MAZE.ING!!! That you are Miss. Sarah dear.. How do you juggle everything? I desperately need lessons. Now that you are back home in Utah, maybe you'll teach me:) Hope everything went as smoothly as possible for you and everyone else involved...
P.S. Where are you living in good ol Utah??

Hey! Perhaps you won't see this for awhile, but I miss reading and finding out how things are...and then I think that you're a little nearer, but probably completely wiped out! So, basically, I hope things are okay and that you survived the trip and the move and now all the fires out here. We'd love to play sometime before school starts.
