Let's see...what are the highlights. Found out I was potentially getting a job transfer to Lincoln back in February. That became official in April. So we started the process of getting our house ready to be put on the market. That meant a whole lot of cleaning, organizing, sending stuff to good will, putting stuff into storage, new carpet in the basement, new flooring in the kitchen, refinishing the deck, yard work, and a whole heap of other small tasks that amounted to quite a lot of work for both Ian and I. Ian did a whole lot of the work just because I couldn't, but we both felt like we were working non stop for the last couple of months. All with the hopes that when we put our house on the market it would sell quickly.

And while selling our house was quite the blessing, it also was a bit scary because we had to immediately switch gears from moving out of our house, to finding a new place to live. We didn't want to feel rushed into buying another house, so we planned on renting for a little while. We struggled with finding a place because of our dogs (two big does is a bit tricky when looking for a rental FYI). But we managed to find a place and moved in a few weeks ago. Ian's done a lot of work getting us all settled into our place, and it's starting to feel like home. I'm not sure the dogs agree since we lost the fenced yard, but there is a BEAUTIFUL dog park not to far from our apartment. So I think as long as we take regular trips there, they'll forgive us.

So here's to 2014 being the year of changes in our family. Life does move pretty fast, and I'm beyond grateful right now that I have a chance to sit...relax...and enjoy where we're at. Life is good-I just need to remember that even in the midst of craziness.
