I know it’s been quiet around here lately but we’re getting a lot accomplished. We’ve decided to move the date of our trip up, or at least to try to, so we’ve been on a roll with getting all of the boring stuff taken care of. We’ve gotten Parker’s eyes checked (perfect vision, yay!) and made sure I have enough contacts to last the duration of the trip (awful vision, boo!).
We’ve scheduled another dentist visit for Parker and bumped up Fischer’s 4 month well check. We’ve sold A TON of stuff and have lots more listed in various Facebook swaps. We are also donating a bunch to help a couple of the local babywearing group’s admins pay for CBE (certified babywearing educator) certifications.
I think the biggest change though is that Jason gave notice at his job. Because of the type of business it is, they will pay out his two week notice but he doesn’t have to work it out. So, he’s officially home with us full-time. Given my freak out on Monday, it’s kind of hilarious. Because there is no turning back now! I really thought that there would be an adjustment period to having him home but I think he senses the urgency to get everything taken care of so that we can hit the road. He’s been super helpful and it’s been amazing to have him here.
My birthday was Wednesday and that plus the stress meant I ate like crap for a few days. Yesterday I decided that I wasn’t going to let stress wreck my body and got back on track. I feel a thousand times better already. I think I need to explore why I stop caring about my body when I’m stressed out. One day. I don’t have time for that today!
Ideally, we would like to move our “go date” up to August 15th instead of November 1st. We’re waiting on the mold inspection of our rental to see how likely we are to be able to leave early. They’re making it harder than we anticipated. But the mold is a huge concern for us since I’m allergic to mold and we have a premature little one who is more sensitive to everything.
Sorry for not updating as often, it’s just the boring stuff for now. We’ll have to share pics of our apartment emptying soon!
