|Just take a moment to enjoy my saltwater sandals tan lines and my swollen pregnant ankles. Just a moment. And then we can move on and never speak of it again.|
First of all, I'm 33 almost 34 weeks pregnant... WHAT. Second of all, Alex Casey has driven away in a 24 ft Budget Truck carrying all our possessions including my Snoogle! (Body pillow, for those of you who haven't read about it before.) Oh my gosh, saddest day of my life. I mean, I know that we will be seeing each other again but it just seems so far away. I hate it. I thought I would be fine with staying behind for a little while, but 89% of me wishes I had climbed in that truck with him.
Why am I waiting, you ask? I don't know if I've ever answered that question, but if I haven't here's the scoop. My second lil sis Olivia comes home from her mission to Baltimore, Maryland in two weeks. When Alex and I decided to move to Indiana one of the first things I asked him was, "What about Olivia??" In the end, I decided to stay behind for a few weeks to see her and hang out before I leave. I haven't seen her in 18 months, and I didn't want to move across the country without seeing her for even longer. It seemed like a good plan at the time, and I am still excited about it, but there are still two weeks of NO Olivia and NO Alex that I have to get through.
Thankfully I have my mom, dad, and brother to entertain me.
My main concern now is obviously that Alex gets there safely, but the second concern is that he puts the couch in the right place when he gets to the house. You guys... it is SUPER hard to know that I have my own house in Indiana and I'm just putting my faith in Alex to get it set up for me. Thank goodness for modern technology. I can easily say, "move that table a few inches to the left" over FaceTime :)
