I Have a Good Reason.......Honestly!

I know, I know! It's been almost a week since I last blabbed on here. For shame! I have good reasons, though. Gettin' ready for the In Laws who come down Saturday, continuing to work on the Bubs's bedroom, and here's the doozy........we just found out yesterday that we're being transferred. We're talking about a move from one coast to the other. I've been alternating between shock, grief and outright anger. Not to mention praying.....although begging might have been a more appropriate description a couple times.

In short, we don't want to leave but we don't have a choice. My family is devastated that we will be so far away. Travel is not easy for them because of health reasons, especially now that Mom will be undergoing radiation treatments. The swiftness of the move has also taken all of us by surprise. I'm talkin' about a matter of months, y'all. Oy!

Hubby and I haven't told the Bubs and we have no ideas about how or when to let him know. He's sooooo excited about going to "Poppi's school". Now, he'll only get a few months there before he's yanked cross-country to move to a very rural area away from everything familiar. My heart is already breaking for him.

We've been so incredibly blessed to stay in this area for so long. In my head I knew that it would come to an end eventually, but in my heart I was still holding out hope that we would somehow, someway be able to stay here. Unrealistic, but that's how I roll people.

I'll be posting more about the Bubs's room soon, but for now I'm gonna run. I don't want the Hubby to come home and find me, yet again, in a puddle of my own tears and snot.

Oh Anna, mom told me tonight after talking to your mom. I am surprise, yet not, knowing your hubby's job and all. But I am heart broken for you all, worried for you and your dad and've always been with your family. You are so in my prayers right now. I wish I could do more.

I am already trying to figure out how we can get down to visit before you go, knowing it may be a long time before we see each other again.

Much love and prayer.

Your cousin

j's mommy~ A move was bound to happen, but we were hoping to at least stay on the same coast....

Right now, I'm totally overwhelmed. I catch myself staring into space during the day, completely bowled over by how much there is to do and how very little time there is to do it all in. Then I cry.....a lot...behind closed doors, when I'm alone or on the phone with Hubby everytime he calls from work with more info. The poor man.

Trying to see the silver lining, but my vision is a little blurred from the tears and puffy eyes.

Just hang in there the best you can. Call me if you need to talk.

Aww- so so sorry honey!!

I gotta say that is a shock to move from one coast to the other. You have a good cry! Then have a pillow fight or beat on an old sofa with a pillow and then have some chocolate. There really is some thing about crying, beating an innocent sofa senseless followed by chocolate that seems to handle all the emotions of oh crap.

Oh my word! Your poor Mom. That sucks royally! I'll be praying for ya.
