Moving stress

For the last month, I have lived mentally on the edge of my seat, waiting for news. News about when we would move. Where we would live. We have renters moving into our house, but we needed a way to get out of here and a place to go when we got to Las Vegas. Praying, crying, and finally a few days of depression and hopelessness. Then at last, yesterday we got some official news. The movers are coming on Wednesday. Although we still don't have a place to go for sure, I am relieved that our stuff will be out of this house so the renters can move in.
I don't know that I will ever get used to the way the military does things, since it is so highly inefficient and completely frustrating. This is our 5th move since we were married, and it's by far the most stressful one yet. The closer it gets to leaving here, the more I can't believe we're already going. I love love love it here. And yet, I LOVE moving. I love the excitement of change and getting to a new place with a fresh start. The hard part is waiting in limbo for so stinking long. Now I'm just praying that the bank will hurry it up so we can have another beautiful place to call home. I don't want to be homeless for too long.

Boy oh boy do I understand the stress of being in limbo!!! It stinks. But when you move into your new home, it'll seem that much more wonderful.

Waiting is the worst. I hate when things are out of my control, and you just have to wait until somebody else gets with you or does their thing. Yuck!

Looks like Eva had been learning from her Mommy. Time to move? Time to get pregnant!
