Moving.... yet again!

Well - it's been almost two years since my transplant - and we're moving again!  This time, into our own new home.  Jordan and I are about to become homeowners - and it's really an exciting, nerve-wracking, scary and awesome time!

I'm really excited about it - it feels like the next step into fully stepping back into life, moving on and growing for me.  When we moved out of our old place, into this new apartment - it was a nice, fresh start - away from the place we did dialysis in, on our own... and it was a great place to live, recover, start to gain our footing - but I'm really excited about having our own home.

It has a yard, which is going to be amazing for my dogs.  Honestly, my dogs are a great source of joy for me - I'm lucky to have them.  They just love Jordan and I so much - and now, with a place for them to play whenever they like... I just feel like I'm giving THEM something for all the love and attention they give me!

When I was on dialysis, little Abby used to wait off to the side of the room while I was attached to the machine.  When it was done, and Jordan had removed the needles from my arm and bandaged me up, she would gently jump into my lap, and nuzzle in to fall asleep for a while, while I sat and recovered for a bit after the treatment.  She was the best little dialysis dog, heh.

So, yes - moving all your stuff is a mess... I hate packing, I hate moving, and I hate unpacking.  It's such a stressful and hectic activity - plus, right now, Jordan is back in school two nights a week, so she's gone all day - plus, when she's home, she's studying like crazy.  She's bound and determined to do well in her course, and since it's a summer course, it's very short, very intense and the classes are long.  Throwing this into the mix as we try to move.... heh.

Then there's everything else that comes with moving - changing addresses, changing them with all your credit cards/banks/etc..... plus, I have to change the address for my business, Infamous Quests, as well.... so many things to remember.  I'm already ahead of the curve on a couple - already have power and water turned on, so score one for Steve.

Plus - it's Summer - I really want to do some camping, hiking, campfires, guitar playing as well... I need to get outside and enjoy the world a bit.... though it's been rainy, gray and dreary here for the past couple weeks.  It's kind of a bummer.

Well - I realize this is kind of just an outpouring of exactly what I'm doing and what's on my mind, but it really does help me to lay it all out like this.  I've been really stressed about it, along with everything else in my life that stresses me - my kidney, my weight, my health, my job, etc.... so, if you made it this far - thanks for being a part of my sorting my head out.

So much to do!!! YIKES!
