It has been a couple of months now since we received the news that we would be moving. I documented our move to Wisconsin on the blog a bit, and I think I will do the same this time. The last time we moved from Alabama to Wisconsin was in March 2013. A few years or so later and we are about to do it again with an extra child in tow. Right now, my nerves about the move are not so bad. The only worry was finding a place to live that fit our criteria.
It just so happened that a few more houses became available the night before we flew in and during the weekend. Our realtor has been the best so far. She and I have been on the same page as far as what would or would not be a good fit for us. After scouring the listings online, missing sleep, making one offer miles away and going to see 12 – 15 properties in the area in person, we finally found a house that felt like it could be our home. It just felt like us. We made our offer after seeing it twice and by Sunday we got word that it was accepted.
Even after getting the news and signing a contract, I am still a bit nervous about the rest of the process. Not sure how that works coupled with the notion that I also feel relieved. In the midst of all these decisions, we have done our best to keep the kids occupied. We took them to Chuck E. Cheese, to check out the reservoir, and found a pretty neat park.
I am hoping and praying for more positives along the way.
