We are heading to Milton!

Well, our house has been rented and the people want to move in by Sunday.

In 2 days.

So we are going to Milton tomorrow!! I'm super excited. It feels like forever since I have seen my family and friends and dog and cat. It's only been 3 weeks so I better get used to it.

We are all driving down together and then loading up the moving truck and then leaving on Monday. At least that is the plan. I would LOVE to stay in Milton until we get the duplex ready to live in. But since I have to go to the Dr. three times a week that doesn't seem to be an option. I don't know how I will ever take moving back into the upstairs of my brother-in-laws house. They have been EXTREMELY hospitable and generous. They have not asked us to pack up and get out once. But I am REALLY ready to have my own home! Even if it is tiny and kind of yuck, at least it will be ours. Hopefully we can get flooring in sooon. I think that is all we are waiting on.

It will be super hard on me to follow the moving van back to MO. I don't think they go past 50 or 55 miles per hour. Pure torture. But it's the price I'm willing to pay to get to take a quick trip back home. And at least I won't be like Heath. He will be driving with a dog and a cat in the truck. Cats are not the best traveling companions. At least I won't have to listen to 14 hours of meowing. I will just swell up like a blimp. I do that on trips now.

Heath's parents are extememely upset that I'm going. They think that I don't have any business going on a 14 hour trip when I'm 35 weeks pregnant. Maybe they are right. Heath's dad asked if I had prayed about it. No, I haven't. Maybe I will tonight. We are waiting to leave until after my Dr. appointment so we won't get in until around 4:00am. Maybe I can sleep through most of that. We will see.

Anyway we are Florida bound!!!! (as long as Jesus and the Dr. say it's okay)

  1. Dang! We won't be over to Milton for another couple weeks so we're gonna miss you guys.
    At least we have our blogs.
    And I've made plenty of trips in late pregnancy. It isn't comfortable but it is doable if you make sure you take a lot of breaks and stay away from salt.
    You could also plan a stop at a hotel half way. That would break up your trip nicely and give your body time to deflate.
