Sunday December 19, 2021

So, on friday the place we were hoping to move in to said "yes" but  you have to sign the lease in person immediately or you can't have the unit.... So, my husband and I ... well, he took off work last minute and we hauled ass to our new apartment! 

The office of the place was previously a bank apparently, we did all the lease signing while sitting in the car drive through... they sent the paperwork through those tubes, you know what i mean? i don't know what they're called, honestly. It was absolutely ridiculous.

None of this would have been possible so fast if it wasn't for my father-in-law. I am so very extremely grateful. It's hard for me to find the words. He has helped us so much with finding a place and securing it so that we can make this move as smooth as possible.

Due to the timing of having to sign the lease immediately-- I missed my huge family christmas. which is very saddening, since I am going to move away and be even less likely to see my family from here on out.

But there was no way around it, we had to do what we had to do.

Tomorrow I have therapy, and I have SO MUCH to tell my therapist!!! I should make notes, haha.

And on wednesday I have to take Miss Lilly to the Veterinarian because this apartment wants pets to be up to date on every and all possible vaccinations and my baby girl hasnt been to the vet since 2013, i think. I can't quite remember. She'll be terrified for sure, the pet carrier and the drive. I am going to ask the vet for a sedative to give her for the move, I hope they will give us something. I can't imagine how she'd manage an 8 hour car drive without being sedated.

I could probably keep typing but I need to try and get some sleep.

I've been keeping it a secret for a long time but my husband applied for a new job and has gotten it! so..

So we are moving.

The job will have much better pay and the environment will be better for both of us.

But the down side is... the move has to happen FAST. We are going to be moving to a new state... by Jan 10. Hopefully the first week of Jan even. So there is a ton to do, and not much time to do it in.

Which makes me really anxious, which makes me stall. Because I get paralyzing anxiety. Especially when there's so much to do.... I get really overwhelmed. So this has been... well... not that great.

I have been trying. I Really have. And I'm gonna keep at it. I have to. 

I have a lot of clothes to donate to churches or good will, and also some to give to my cousin.

One of the set backs I'm having trouble with is that we need to be able to throw away more stuff... like the garbage can gets full from just normal stuff, and we are moving out of here and there's extra garbage and nowhere to put it.

Finding a place to live on such short notice has been a nightmare, and especially since it's a place far away.

And the application process, ahhhhh.

Luckily-- Thankfully-- My father-in-law has been helping us. Helping us A LOT. like, more than I could have ever expected. I dont think we'd be able to pull this off if it wasn't for him. And I am so grateful and thankful. If it wasn't for him, our dream wouldn't be coming true.

So yeah... I'm getting teary eyed now... ahhh.

Here have some christmas gifs
