Pant, pant, gasp, gasp. Whew. The horrible week is finally over. Yay!
Moving into temporary dwelling? Check.
Day of rest? Check. Thank goodness.
Shaun and I were both exhausted last night. All that stress and worry and lifting boxes and sadness at leaving our first very-own-house was a little too much. Today we are not going into work (except right now for the internet), we don't have to pack, and we don't have to do anything except take care of Emma.
We're feeling much better today, especially since we found out that we were approved for the rental house we applied for in La Grande. Yay! We have a place to live when we get to Oregon! This is such a huge load off my mind. I had no idea just how incredibly stressed I was about this until the worry was gone and I felt so much better. I don't do well with uncertainty in my living arrangements. It's a nice-looking house with a yard and a garage, in a part of town that we liked when we drove around La Grande last month. (We camped again on that trip, and is was another good experience. Emma really likes camping!)
When we were there, we looked at several houses to buy but none of then immediately jumped out and grabbed us, plus it's hard to buy a house long distance, so we decided to just rent for a while and take our time looking for a house. I think this was a good way to go.
