There has been a ton going on, but I wanted to post a VERY brief summary of our lives in the last week. Once I catch my breath, there will probably be 3 posts about all the things that have happened, but for now, here’s the short version.
#1. We moved out of our place in Maryland. It took a while, but in 3 days we were totally packed and moved out.
#2. We started driving around 5:30 and made it about 5 hours without incident. Then there was a HUGE incident. A deer ran across the interstate, clipped a trucker, darted behind Andy’s truck, and completely wrecked my car. I’m okay, and so is the baby, but it caused about $8,000 worth of damage to my CR-V and it is now stuck in Roanoke, VA for the next 3.5 weeks. This definitely will warrant it’s own post.
#3. We eventually made it to Nashville, spent some time with our friends and reconnected with a few, and had a baby shower thrown for us by Andy’s mom and Grandmother. We had a really wonderful time at the shower, especially since we were able to see a lot of our family members, many of whom we haven’t seen since the last reunion we went to in 2006. Riley got some really beautiful presents and hopefully I can put up a few pictures sometime in the near future.
#4. Then we packed and packed and packed and packed some more for Atlanta. We arrived here on Monday around noon and have been rebuilding furniture, setting up the house, and trying to make it feel like home. While it doesn’t really feel like we’ve accomplished much, I know we really have. It still doesn’t quite feel like it’s ours yet, but it’s getting there. Pictures to come!
So that’s what we’ve been up to in one incredibly busy and chaotic week! More updates soon!
