Living in the Land of Nothing

Since January 1st, Stephen has been living in Huntsville without us. Or, we've been living in NC without him. Either way you say it, it sucks. This move to Huntsville has been long and full of road blocks. We've been having issues with our house in NC. It's not selling. In the beginning of March we decided to try and lease it. So far, we've had no luck with that. This weekend Rachel and I traveled to Huntsville to visit Stephen and to look for a place to live. Out of the 5 houses we chose to look at, 3 of them had rented before we even had a chance to see them. The only house we liked that we saw ended up having not only an offer put in on it, but a person was interested in leasing it too. We hit a dead end. It's now up to Stephen to find a new place and it needs to be done quickly. The apartment he is currently in is being paid for by his new place of work. The lease ends the end of April. We are getting down to the wire and I'm tired of waiting. I'm in the middle of nothing. I need to find all these new doctors and friends and things to do but I can't. I have all these doctors and friends and things to do in NC but I feel like I already am living with one foot out the door. This new baby makes things all the more urgent. I want to be settled someplace with a nursery ready. I hate living in limbo.

***a happier post will be coming later, I promise.


  1. I hate limbo, too, and the situation you're in would push me so outside of my comfort zone I'd be fetal position on the floor somewhere. The nice part is that it is temporary. You may not be able to see how it's going to work out yet, but in the end it will. And it will be awesome when it does. The four of you, all together!

  2. I totally know about how it feels to live in limbo. My heart goes out to you right now.
    Deep breaths :)

  3. Makes me so nervous, because I'm just a few months behind you, and already dealing with these issues! We miss daddy terribly, even though I've been super busy, he is homesick! My house is nowhere near ready to be listed, and it won't be until I get my adoption tax credit from the IRS so I can fix a few small things. Who knows how long it will take to sell. My hubby needs to find an apartment, he is living with my sister and her baby in a ONE bedroom! Urgh, I feel your pain!

  4. I'm sorry Maggie! Moving sucks and being in limbo sucks even more! I wouldn't want to be in your shoes and really hope that everything gets worked out soon!

    Boo to all the delays... sending good thoughts your way! <3
