Which means only 10 weeks (approximately) LEFT! SWEET!
It's definitely flying by!
Today, Chris and I signed papers to hold the apartment and he already reserved our movers for June 28th at 9:00 a.m. It's feeling official. And we have empty boxes that are starting to pile up in the living room because I scavenge what I can from work and bring them home. Just can't quite get motivated to start packing them yet.
On the way home today (from signing forms to hold the apartment), I was kind of hit by how far removed I think I might feel...once we actually live out there and I am not working. We're already kind of farther out from our friends and family. We love our church but don't really know that many people. And now, we're moving out of Portland, to the suburbs, further away from everyone we know and just kind of isolated I guess. On the way home today, I just started feeling lonely about it all. It will be a huge adjustment...to be home, not interacting with lots of people at a job all day, no longer have the close access to going anywhere I want (without running up a big gas bill)....etc. I worry too. I know that's something I need God to change in me. To trust that it's all going to be okay. That there are options to avoid that lonliness and isolation and to maybe have new and/or thriving relationships with people in my life. I think with all of the excitement over all these changes, the thought of being a little farther away took me off guard and made me worry. I know it'll all work out. We'll make sure it does :) Sometimes it's just good to air those concerns and be honest with myself about the things I fear...and then, well, refuse to be in fear of them.
In other news! I finally got all of my Thank You cards for our wedding guests complete! yay! I'm excited to send them!!! They're all addressed and postage applied!
