I've also been really getting into wrapping lately. I bought a wrap and have been practicing with it. Sophia seems to like it too!
And I've been trying my hand at making things for her to wear. For example, for the Fourth of July I made both her and Jade matching festive tutus. I think they turned out pretty cute!
I have mixed feelings on the subject. For one, I'm super excited to move, ready to leave this place behind, and can't wait to start on this adventure with my little family. We've heard from tons of people how beautiful it is there, and some natives that we've met have told us that the tourist season doesn't end, so you can always make money in the service industry. That'd be great, because only making money about three months out of the year pretty much stinks (to say it nicely). Although hopefully he won't even have to get a job like that, but just in case that's all that's available at the time, it's nice to know.
I think I'm mainly nervous because we haven't even visited the area. We don't have a place lined up to live. Nate doesn't have a job up there. We'd be going in completely blind basically, staying in a hotel until we could (quickly) find a place to live. I'd rather have some more security than that. Especially with having a baby. If it were just us, it'd be a little easier to deal. I just don't want to end up having to live out of our car.
The other thing is that I've never moved away from this area. I've never had to start over. I'd have no friends and no other family other than Nate and Sophia. I'm shy as it is, so I'm worried that it'll take a while to make any friends. But, I have started joining some crunchy mom groups on facebook trying to make friends, so that's a start. Looks like they have a group that meets up somewhat regularly and are pretty active in the community, so maybe I can make some friends there. I hope so, if we do the move!
Our lease is up this month (yes, as in days). But, we'd stay an extra month here, so we can finish getting our ducks in a row. Plus, I have family coming into town to meet Sophia and Jade, and that would be at the end of August/beginning of September, so we'd probably have to stay in a hotel for that time period. Fun? Not really looking forward to being homeless. Or moving. Moving house is NOT fun. It feels like we just did it not long ago, even though it's already been a year.
Although I'm nervous about the rather sporadic possible move, I do know that Nate has never failed to provide for us in whatever way that he can. He's definitely one to put his family first, and I absolutely love and appreciate him for it. Really, how did I get so lucky? But anyway, I trust him to know what he's doing, which hopefully he does. He wants this move SO bad, even more than I do. I guess we'll know sooner rather than later where this life path will take us though. I'll try to keep updating on here on what happens.
