Whew! We are officially out of the house, the papers are signed, the buyers' loan has funded, and we are done. I'm semi-settled with BW at M2's place.* MM and the dogs have arrived safely in AZ and the truck is unloaded. BW and I will be heading out there to spend a week visiting, and then it's back to Texas until May for the two of us.
I'm relieved it's all done - relieved the house sold before the job went. Relieved that even though we had to struggle financially for a bit, we made it through. Relieved that we'll be OK until MM finds work again. I'm feeling safe and welcomed and loved, and it's a little overwhelming.
We've always known that our friends and family would come through for us anytime we needed them, but it's still humbling to see it in action. We've had to borrow money to get by while waiting for funds to come in. We've asked to be taken in by our friends until I finished this semester of school, while MM looked for work, until we could find a place of our own.
Everyone has been there for us, doing everything they could do to help, happily, without reservation, through it all. It's amazing to know all these wonderful people, and I'm so thankful to have them all in my life.
I'll be busy, busy, busy next week taking care of some stuff in Arizona, so I probably won't be posting for a while. Until then, everyone have a happy week!
* Did I mention how awesome my friends are? Because seriously, they are some pretty incredible people....
