It's like "Pardon the Interruption." Except not as entertaining. Or about sports.

Remember last year, when I would give you all a rundown of current and upcoming "events" (i.e. doctor appointments)? Well, here's something like that.

We're not quite, but kind of, in limbo.

As of today, Jim has officially resigned from his current position (and, while normally, this would go without saying, I will add that, yes, they actually now KNOW that he is leaving). His plan is to work until either December 12 or until a suitable replacement is trained, whichever comes first.

Things are still up in the air with our current home. We have a second meeting next week with a potential "suitor," and we are hopeful that this is the fit we are all looking for. More to come on that.

Our home inspection on the Tennessee property is Tuesday morning. Once that is all wrapped up and finalized, we will be able to nail down a closing date. We are hopeful for November 6 or 7.

If that is the case, the plan is to move the majority of our things to Tennessee the week of Thanksgiving, and spend the long holiday weekend painting, cleaning, and moving in general. (Does anyone think I'm crazy for wanting to set up the Christmas tree that weekend, even though no one will be there to enjoy it?)

I'm tentatively planning a 1st birthday party / going-away bash for the first weekend in December -- between Thanksgiving and Jim's move to Tennessee. We'll see if I actually manage to pull that off.

Seth and I fly to Jacksonville the week before Christmas (Jim will join us from Nashville), and we all come home the day after Christmas.

The plan right now is for me to work those last few days of the year to finish up our January renewals, and then all three of us will head to Tennessee for good. Bittersweet, I know.

So, blink. Blink, blink. And just like that we go from mid-October to New Year's. I know in reality it'll go just about that fast, too.

Not my most riveting post ever. Sorry. =) Just trying to keep the masses informed. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Well, a time line is a good start...even though that moved way too fast for me! LOL If you need help with the party, let me know! I'd be more than willing to help you plan it, set up, whatever. Just let me know!

after reading a few of your posts for the first time, i hope its safe to say, i think you will really like nashville. we (my family) are going there over the weekend of halloween. it is such a great place to visit. so much to do, see, & eat...yummy food.
but i can't imagine packing up & moving a few states away. especially with a little one! good luck to you during the prep & packing weeks. gosh, i hate packing, but love, love, love to enter into a new house, decorate, & open the boxes back up & give 'your things' a new home. good luck during the next few weeks.
