We made it. The boys and I finally moved from Michigan to be with my husband in Minnesota. It hasn’t been easy as life hasn’t stopped or slowed down to help us make the adjustment. We love it! We don’t have much at the moment, since all our belongings are still in storage in Illinois from the first move. We’re learning to only live with what we absolutely need instead – it’s been very freeing. If we didn’t have personal effects and important documents in storage I think we’d just leave it. I’m hoping one weekend soon we’ll be able to drive down and pick everything up. Until then we’re using a desk and office chairs as a dining table set, sleeping on air mattresses on the floor, and sitting on a loaned futon as a couch. It does look a bit sad around here – the important thing is we’re together and enjoying every moment in our new state, in our new home!
