I just wanted to drop a note and let everyone know that we’ve made it through the long haul …. literally. Last week we packed everything into a huge truck and drove 900 miles to Memphis, TN where we unloaded it into a storage unit.
We waited on the final transfer notice from the Navy for so long, that we couldn’t sign a lease on anything before we moved.
After the move, I came on home to stay with my family in Arkansas (5 hours from Memphis) and SuperWife returned for her last week at work in Virginia Beach, VA. She is leaving our old home and heading to Arkansas to be with both our families for the holiday. So it definitely feels like the calm in the center of a hurricane. Next week she’ll travel to Memphis to find us a temporary dwelling while we search for a house and then the next weekend we’ll move our priority items into that space. So we have a small move and another big move in our future but the hardest part — packing it all and moving it 900 miles — is behind us.
Thank you to everyone for their prayers and well wishes — they have been very much appreciated — we have felt very welcomed and cared about!
In other news, the holiday candy making has been in full swing this week at home. We’ve made Candied Orange Peel, Krispy Peanut Butter Balls, Chocolate Covered Cherries, Chocolate Covered Oreos, Honeyed Short Bread, and Orange Scones… Still to go, we have Peppermint Meringues and Chocolate Macaroons!
