Living in the Moment

It's Friday night. Three weeks from today, we will be headed to Oklahoma.


If I breathe deeply enough, I can almost convince myself that I feel calm about this. If I remember to take each moment as it comes, to get through one day at a time, and to use all the meditation techniques I have in my arsenal to stop worrying about the future and pining over the past, maybe, just MAYBE, I can get through this without completely flipping out.


We're excited but it's bittersweet. I wish we didn't have to leave here. I hate hate HATE moving. And we love it here. So keep us in your thoughts and prayers. And if you live in North Carolina, come visit us before we're gone! And if you live in Oklahoma...get ready, we're bringin' crazy back!

Hey, does this mean we'll get to see you guys at Christmas?? We'll be in OK Dec 21-27, and are planning on one day in Norman somewhere in there.

Dad and I have prayed for this move and for your pump Susan. We are both awed at the power of prayer - assuming that it had something to do with this! We have every confidence that you'll make a smooth transition - you are also on the prayer chain for a safe move. We love you all and are looking very forward to seeing you at Christmas time. We're hoping to encourage Andy to fly down and have Christmas together. Wouldn't that be something?

Wow, I'll admit, I didn't see that coming. Kudos on the surprise factor. Now, are all of you moving? Or are you doing the family apart thing for a while?
You are going to love being closer to your family and sometimes that is enough to give up all the trees and beauty of NC.
I am sending you tons of "easy move" vibes to get you through the next 3 weeks.

hmmmmm, you are quite a bit closer to me though, I am loving that. Wanna come experience TX?

In my mind we have already taken a road trip to Lubbock together so that I can meet one of my favorite bloggers. I want to go play on the airplane in the backyard. YEA!! Rachel
