timing is everything

our house is for sale...and the ward is spliting in 2 weeks. i was feeling pretty sad to leave...and i still am but now that our ward will go through some significant changes i'm not the only one who is leaving. boundaries will be changed and families that are in our ward now will soon not be in our ward. it's kind of neat to see this much growth but sad to split. it's a good time to leave. i asked b if he was sad to leave and not be bishop anymore... he said 'no. if this was happening 3 months ago i would be sad but timing is everything. i am okay with it and it's actually a blessing.'
i know i will miss the spirit that resides in our home because of his service as bishop. it worries me that we are going to have to try really hard now to have that same spirit in our home. we have taken so many small things for granted like fhe at his parents house every sunday. we're responsible for that now. and sunday dinners. oh crap. so many wonderful blessings that we have grown accustom to...
let the adventure begin then. wednesday we set out for tahoe in search for a home. wish us luck...or pray that we find something. i know i will be.

Good luck with the house search. I can't believe the ward is splitting again. You will have to let us know where they split it.

good luck house hunting, my advice is look for a house in a good school district, and with lots of kids in the neighborhood, my kids don't have anyone to play with in the neighborhood, a big difference from foxboro.

The split makes me nervous now that Brandon made his announcement yesterday! I hope it's not toooo traumatic! Good luck with the house search. I changed our blog site to allofouranecdotes.blogspot.com so start checking that one instead!
