This “big change” really is turning out to be big. Jay and I are simultaneously buying a house, selling a house, watching a son graduate, moving out of an apartment, preparing for me to change jobs, and for Jay to change where he does his current job, saying goodbye to friends, and just keeping from going crazy.
As much as I hated dragging this all out 3 months, I don’t honestly know how we could have done it in any less time.
The good news is, we’ve bought a house and sold our current house (at least to the extent you can say either prior to respective closings), so we’re able to plan our move and take care of the apartment without too much difficulty.
The bad new is, pretty much every moment between now and my first day at my new job is packed with things that need to be done. But they will get done, and this will all be over very soon…in five weeks and just a few days.
