I’ve been running like a chicken with my head cut off. On August 5, Dan and I decided to move back to Portland. But we had to do it quickly because we have a little baby due on September 10. We booked a moving van and began frantically packing. We packed the entire apartment in six days! The moving van arrived last Thursday, we loaded it up, cleaned up the apartment, and flew off on Friday. We have spent every day since we arrived looking for a place to live so that when the moving van arrives it has a place besides Dan’s mom’s house to leave our belongings. We have also been interviewing midwives and looking for cars. I have a job interview later this morning. Dan got his old job back and has gigs lined up. Overall, it’s been quite the whirlwind couple of weeks. We have several applications in and one has been accepted, but we are waiting with bated breath to see if the application on our favorite place is accepted. We are supposed to find out today. I will keep my fingers crossed, then get ready to unpack. We have to nest before our little girl arrives!
