On our way home

After months of planning and counting down, it’s finally time for us to head home.

We’ll be hitting the road to head back to Indiana this Saturday. We’ve only just begun to pack up, which means I’ll likely be too busy to post much this week. Unfortunately, I’m also quite ill, which is making packing a challenge — to say the least. I’m so thankful to Tony for picking up my slack. I couldn’t ask for a better husband and partner.

I’m sure I’ll have a lot to share once we get settled. For now, I hope you’ll check out the archives, leave a question in the comments, and bear with me while we journey 800 miles to our new home.

I do have a quick piece of fantastic news, though: our subletter problem was solved just in the nick of time. After having three different people go through the steps to sublet our apartment and back out at the last minute, I was incredibly frustrated. I was also under a lot of stress.

We finally decided to throw up our hands. We gave our landlords notice that we’d be moving out May 1, and they agreed to put our apartment back on the market. We’d only be responsible for rent until they could find a new renter. Our hope was that they’d find someone to move in by June 1, so we’d only have to pay a month of rent, but we were bracing ourselves to pay all three months if they couldn’t find a renter.

Thankfully, they notified me last week that they found a renter who will be moving in May 15! That means we’ll only have to pay 2 weeks’ rent! And they’re letting us out of the lease entirely, which means we don’t have to worry about the risks involved with subletting. It is a HUGE blessing, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for us. What a relief!

I’ll be checking on comments in the next few days, but I probably won’t have a chance to post anything substantive until next week. Next time you hear from me, I’ll be a resident of Indiana once again, and we’ll be starting a brand new chapter in our lives. I can’t wait to share it with you! :)
