The story of our crazy move and what a story it is!
Well we had to move last Saturday, we had one day to do it all and well I was not much help as I am ready to pop! Luckily we had a few helpers and it didn't go to bad packing up the truck to leave for a new town 6 long hours away! We did not get to our new town and new "home" until 10:30 Saturday night (a very very long time to be stuck in a small car with three dogs!) The house we were renting we had not seen yet (BIG mistake) we took the guys word that it was move in ready, the price to rent it was not cheap either so we figured it had to be nice.... when we went in... it was the most disgusting home we had ever seen and we knew we could not live there but what do you do? 10:30 at night? small town? dogs? a moving truck full of everything we own? I was just trying not to go into labour at this point! T was very upset all we could do was find a motel and figure out what to do in the morning! T had to sleep in the car as we could not bring the dogs in. Needles to say it was a long night for everyone! The feeling of being very pregnant and homeless hunted me most of the night. In the morning we woke up early and started looking frantically online and in newspapers for a house that we could live in. We were not feeling very optimistic as it was a Sunday! We waited a bit and then decided we had to make the 6 hour trip back, we did not have a place there either but we had friends and family we could stay at for a little while. About 5 minutes into our drive back we surprisingly got a call back! We thought ok we are here we minas well check it out, it was about a half hour from where we were going to live and to us that was fine. we pulled up and waited for the guy to show us the house the outside wasn't much but the inside looked awesome! He came and showed us the 2 bedroom house...it was nice but when we saw the two bedrooms upstairs we knew it would not be workable for our family, they were side by side and an open concept..no door to separate the 2. Sadly we marched outside to let him know but then he said I have one more place it`s a 4 bedroom and on a different street not sure if you are interested...of course we were! when we pulled up it was so cute and the view from the front porch was gorgeous! Our hopes were high! We were not disappointed! It was more then anything we could of asked for! Everyone was so friendly, even the Town Forman came out on a Sunday to turn the water on for us so we could have showers! I have always believed things happen for a reason and this proves it without a doubt! It is so cheap to rent this beautiful home that I will not have to return to work right away when my year of maternity leave ends! We are so grateful that everything worked out for the better!! Baby is due in 13 days! I went to see the hospital, meet the OB staff and see where little Oz will be born! I love and have so much confidence in our new OB and the nurses at the hospital! We are getting more and more excited to meet this little bean! The hospital is still an hour away but I know we will make it!
