Together Again!

August 28, 2011

Matthew and his brother decided to make a huge final effort and drove for 24 hours straight, from Dawson Creek to Tacoma, WA, surprising us with an early return on Wednesday.  It was a very exciting day to have husband/Daddy home unexpectedly and we were very grateful for their efforts and their safety.  The truck did amazingly well, needing only minor tune-ups after such a strong push.  Thursday and Friday Matthew was able to help his dad with a home emergency and yesterday was spent unloading and sorting the contents of the truck.  While most of it went into our long term storage unit, set until our return from Africa, some of it came back to my parents’ house to be unpacked and settled here.  Obviously, most of that is baby stuff.  Today we are resting but tomorrow will be unpacking…and nesting!  Something I’m really ready to do.  I have been having regular Braxton-Hicks (“practice”) contractions for the past few days and, once things are put away, we will be ready for baby’s arrival.  I’m just hoping Baby is okay with waiting another day or two!

In other exciting news, we got an offer on our house!  After a back-and-forth, we’ve accepted the offer and now the sale process begins.  Please pray that the next steps go smoothly and we close at the end of September, as planned.  It would be a huge relief to sell our house, especially before winter!

Our cats also made the drive down the AlCan and have safely arrived at their new home at Matthew’s sister’s house.  We are grateful to her and her family for taking them in; we know they will be loved and appreciated there.  We are excited for the opportunity to visit them occasionally and hear how they’re doing while we’re overseas.

I imagine the next post will be something about having a new baby, but I suppose that’s not really up to me.  In the meantime, please pray for all to go well with our house, that we can quickly unpack and be ready for Baby’s arrival, and that Baby will come safely!
