Reality Check

Okay, I will be honest and say that I have been a bit depressed with moving weighing on my mind. Recently I spoke with a couple of family members and found that I am going to be missed more than I originally believed, which makes me even more sad to have to leave. Then I got an even bigger reality check when Mark came home for lunch today. He told me that the moving company contacted him at work. They told him that he needs to contact them 3 weeks before we are set to move. They need to come and take stock of all our belongings. Then just before we leave they will pack everything for us and move it. After telling me that, Mark asked me for the phone number of our neighborhood real estate agent. I gave it to him with a sad look on my face. He called and left a message. The last reality check of the day was when Mark came home in the evening with booklets, maps, etc. about the area of Denver we are planning on settling in. I read some of the material and got a good feeling, but something in me keeps yelling "No, I don't want to go!".

In other news, our kitty, Princess, has recovered from her shots, but now her respiratory disease is acting up again. She is sneezing a lot and her eyes are watery. I hate to see her struggling so much especially since she had been feeling so good after finishing her prescription of antibiotic. Princess may be old and skinny, but I'm telling you, the girl still has spunk! I am going to have to take her in to see the vet again and I know she isn't going to like it one bit.

My first response was like the comment above "it will be okay". You are blessed to have his company moving you. So you will be selling your home? Are you buying a home in Colorado?

When we moved to Kansas City 10yrs. ago, we sold our home(and lost $), my husband left his job of 15yrs. with no job in place yet, we stayed with friend's whom ended up not being friends, which lead us to have to rent a duplex out of emergency, my hubby did find a good job after 1 month of being there, then I had a miscarriage and never recovered. I got sicker and sicker. We had no insurance so I didn't go to a Doctor till we moved back to CA. because of my health and I found out I had endometriosis from the miscarriage. But a group of old ladies prayed over me and I was healed. Sorry this is so long...I just know that if you have to move it is better to do it the way that you are. I have a feeling it is going to be a good thing for your family.
