Saying Goodbye.

Mark and I are moving again.

Crazy, I know. I feel like we just moved to Ohio. But this move is going to be a good thing for Mark and a good thing for our family. This last year has been a fantastic adventure and our family has learned a lot, but Ohio hasn't felt like home to me. And I am really, really tired of the snow. And being cold all the time. And huge heating bills because I refuse to turn down my thermostat below 65 during the day.

So it's a good thing we are moving to Florida :-)

And for the record, I am NEVER moving in January again. This will be our third move during the month of January, and it sucks! It's cold and snowy, and I'm praying the roads are drivable when we leave in a couple of weeks.

My Dad and Mark's brother have graciously agreed to help us during the move and I can't thank them enough. Evan worships both of these men and they will be a huge help to us as we pack the truck and drive to our new house. Evan is looking forward to driving with Kenneth in the moving truck and teaching my dad how to play Super Mario Brothers on the Wii. He is kind of obsessed with Super Mario Brothers right now :-)

And any tips on how to keep a 20 month old entertained during an 18 hour car trip would be appreciated!

In other news, we got back some unusual lab results for Jack. If you could keep him in your prayers, I would appreciate it. We are repeating his lab work tomorrow and should have the results by Thursday. If his results were correct (as opposed to a lab error), we will be seeing a specialist on Friday. He did have an MRI today and the results were completely normal. That experience was really stressful, and I hope I never have to go through it again. Jack did great while the nurse took his temperature, blood pressure, and weight, but he would not fall asleep after they gave him the oral sedative. He ended up needing an extra dose through an IV, which caused him to be extra loopy and goofy this afternoon. The medication could be in his system until tomorrow afternoon, which will make his 9am physical therapy appointment interesting.

Tonight I am going to take some deep breaths and watch a little football. I think I've had all the excitement I can handle in one day.

Wish us luck.

I don't even know how to keep a 24 year-old entertained for that long.
