It's getting hectic

I realized that I hadn't really posted anything about our move since our big announcement. I think I am still in denial. I look at all of the cardboard boxes in my house and think, "Hmmm... why are these strange things cluttering up my dining room?" and then it hits me- oh yeah. I am moving halfway across the country in a few weeks. I think I trick myself into forgetting so I won't be a big ball of mush 24/7. Who else besides me walks around their house and cries when they see the hardware on their kitchen cabinets? I will be in the best mood and then I will see something like that and I will burst into tears remembering how excited Rob and I were picking those out when we built our house. Truly pathetic.

Rob is leaving in 2 weeks. We planned his going away concert today and it was so incredibly sentimental. We were in John's office and we were trying to narrow down which videos to show. Every one of them made us reminisce for 10 minutes. I can't begin to write how much we are going to miss John and the Contemporary Service. For those of you reading this that don't know, the going away concert will be a week from tonight at 6:00pm in Wesley Hall. I really hope you can make it. It is going to be a wonderful night.

But anyway, we are just in the final stages. Finishing up wedding videos, packing the house, trying to grab those last dinners out with close friends, tying up loose ends at the church, praying non-stop for our house to sell, and trying to get Bennett well from the RSV virus.

Speaking of which, she is crying right now with her little chest rattling so I think my little girl needs me to get off the computer and hold her. Keep us in your prayers and we'll keep you posted as we wind things down here in Montgomery.

Keri A. Ward said... are not pathetic!! Just a passionate, sentimental, genuine-hearted female! and I love you! :)

Im praying for yall and I really cant believe it is almost here! Seriously, Im a great packer, so I would love to come help you! I am sure that you are running low on the available numbers of dinners left to spend with friends, but selfishly, I want some Webster time too. :) Even if it is helping you pack! CALL ME!!

Im praying for yall!!! love you!!

RSV! Conner had it at 18 months, it was HORRIBLE. I'm sure you have already been told this, but a humidifier helped him a TON. I also have these nasal drops that help clear congestion just enough to nurse them to sleep. Let me know if you need the name...

And I totally get what you are talking about with the hardware! I did the same thing (well, I didn't exactly cry but maybe that's because we never got as close to moving as you are). I didn't want to leave my beautiful home!

Good luck with everything!

Oh, and thanks again for inviting us the other night! I don't know if I ever thanked you... oops.

(is it a bad time to ask for the recipe for the bacon things and the oreo things??? they were AMAZING and I MUST HAVE THEM AGAIN!)
