So...moving day is September 5. I'm taking the last two weeks off in August which will give us time to prepare the kids. Today I visited my Mom and picked out the furniture I want (I'll have the best decorated apartment there, probably). In the process of choosing, I find that Mom and I are bonding, better than we ever have. She's told Dad--"all he needs to know," she says.
Financially, it will be tight, but hopefully we can swing this. I have faith. I am actually feeling...really strong. At peace.
