we've been robbed...or maybe just packing

Big A (and I) got the packing itch this last weekend. All of our wall-hangings from every room (except the 2 giant ones we have), all of my books (6 boxes worth - darn bookworm!), and everything on this shelf unit we have - all packed.
I'm hoping we just pack a little bit each night & then we'll be done.
Next item on the list? Kitchen stuff we don't use or at least don't need. Really, we use a pot, a pan, and a cookie sheet. That's all. And we need some bowls & 4 plates and some silverware. Not much.

As for this pregnancy thing, I'm still not feeling better. I have a doctor's appointment today; basically to get Moose's flu shots done and to ask her questions about getting a new doctor *TEAR* Honestly, I never thought it'd be so hard to leave our doctor, but she is the best. I can't talk about leaving her without tearing up. I am attached - to say the least. I'm going to ask her to move with us today, but I'm not really expecting that to turn out good. I did (reluctantly) make an appointment with an OB-GYN in Virginia that was recommended to me. But I still have no idea about how to find a good pediatrician for Moose. I don't want to search over and over and over and over - our insurance won't kick in for 60 days so it'll be out of pocket. First visits aren't cheap! And I'll have to wait on the whole ultrasound thing because that's a bill I don't want to visit.

It still doesn't seem real. I don't know if it will until we're on the road or moved in. I'm nervous about the move, I'm nervous about the training. I know I'm leaving Moose in VERY capable hands, but I just haven't left him in so long. I know he'll get used to it and it's only for a few weeks, but I know I'll have a hard time with it. I'm going to miss my boy. A LOT.

We've been asked if we're having a going away party, but I don't think we have the money or time for one. I know we could do a pot luck thing and that would be fine, but with the holidays rapidly approaching, I don't think we or anyone else will have time to fit it in. Our college friends will be home as I'm writing this, too. So I don't know. I'd like to say good-bye to everyone but if no one would show up it'd be a waste of time.

It's a lot to deal with especially with those hormones!

Just take lots of deep breaths and know that when this is all done, and you are settled, you'll be starting a new chapter in your life!

you have such a tender heart. :) i love it! i hope your move goes super smooth and that you don't get too nervous. i think that once you're all settled in you're going to love your new home, new job, and new surroundings. i can't wait to hear all about it.

Lots of hugs to you. So many changes in such a short amount of time!

Take a deep breath and remember, everything will be just fine!

I feel exactly like you about my Doctor! She is no longer delivering babies, so I'll have to find a new one :( I'm sooo sad about that.
