reality check

Oh my goodness, today was a hard day. Very very bittersweet. It felt like the day lasted about 50 hours. I'm exhausted and stinky. My mom came and spent the day helping me pack and saving me from the brink of insanity.

I'll sum up the whirlwind day with the good news- we found a home for our kitty, yay!! (though he is going to a lady who already had 8 cats, so we're pretty sure we are going to see our cat on an episode of Hoarders someday with this lady...!), Jamie sold his Tahoe (and for our asking price!!), and our realtor showed our house to a lovely family who decided almost for certain they want to rent our house.

Whew that is a lot of answered prayers in one day. The only sad part about it all is that it happened so fast that we didn't get much closure with the cat or the car. They were just suddenly gone! I mean, it's what we wanted, but we had to have a little sad moment of reflection and focusing on the big picture.

And we are dealing with some tough goodbyes in the midst of the packing frenzy. Seeing some of our friends and family for the last time in who knows how long...? We REALLY hope people will come visit us, but the reality is that we may not see some of these dear people for a long time. Thank goodness for Facebook. :)

Anyways, it's all part of the roller coaster adventure and we are trying to enjoy the journey, but today was a tough one. But that's life, right?
