For real this time! A FINAL date!

Okay. Hubby's boss has given him a "move by" date. We've notified the landlord and I've made final appointments for the kids with all their doctors so I can fill out paperwork to move records with us. They'll be done with all that by January 13th and I can start finding new doctors! Always fun! At least we aren't moving out of Kentucky so their insurance will remain the same. They both have to get braces started as soon as we move. As of February 1st we will be in our new place! Now to FIND a new place..... LOL!
Changing schools should be pretty painless IEP wise. (Individual Education Plan, for Christian) My little brother's wife works in the school system and has a friend who worked in the school system where we're moving to. She's going to help us make sure that Christian gets the right placement.
Next Monday we're letting the kids skip school so we can take them house hunting and to check out the schools and stuff. We have to figure out where the parks and trails are. Sharayah and I will miss Freeman Lake and the hiking trails. Plus we have to find the shortcut to Wal-Mart :)
But now it's time to snuggle up with hubby and watch some TV. I'd like to leave you with a thought. But I haven't got one.

Charquil is now 6 months old!

My sweet baby boy is now about 65 lbs! LOL! He's still loveable and exciteable and suffers from ADHD, as do all puppies. The only reason that green couch still has intact cushions is because they're attached. Charquil ate the 8 cushions off the other 2 couches and a loveseat. No wonder he's HUGE, he eats furniture, basketballs, a volleyball and aluminum cans.

The move......and moving on

We move after Christmas. Two months to find a place and do what we can to move over C-mas break. I wish I could take my landlord with me. And my parents. And Stef. A new opportunity awaits, I shall try and be positive!

I guess I'll cut back to 2 days a week at work. I'll need the extra time to get things re-packed (didn't I JUST get UNpacked?!?) And I gotta figure out how to fix the Angel-damage to the doorframes that she's shredded. I am going through one of my cycles of "my job really sucks and I don't get paid enough for this crap" lately. Maybe I should go ahead and cut back to ZERO days a week! LOL! I'm looking forward to seeing more of my hubby once we move! I could start easing into that now.

Tomorrow I'll start packing up things we won't need until after C-mas. And figure out how to move 6 cats and a ginormous dog. Maybe rent a van and each animal gets its own cage? Or maybe the 3 feral cats move to Mom & Dad's to finish out their lives? Can the dog be fed-exed? Of course in another 2 months Charquil may be big enough to pull a trailer!

The cats have declared that it's bedtime. My baby is in her usual spot (on my laptop and my arm), Frisky is sprawled out along the back of the laptop, Moe is beside the bed and Angel is guarding the bedroom door. All four are snoozin' happily. Two of them are snoring :) Hard work to be a cat! They killed a 2nd mouse this morning. They deserve their slumber. As do I!
