6. What is the hardest thing you have ever had to experience?
Mike and I don't handle stress very well. It eats at us and eats at us and eats at us until it literally makes us sick. We are easy going people and do what we can to avoid having too much stress in our lives. Obviously it is not totally unavoidable, but moving was a long, long process. We started packing up our belongings in March in order to declutter our storage areas a little. We didn't move out until Memorial Day. That was two solid months of packing, showing, and repairing our house. For a family that thrives on routine, we were all a little off balance for a while. Then, we had to live with Mike's parents for 2½ weeks. They were very welcoming and did what they could to help, but it's hard to live your daily life in someone else's home. After we finally did move into our new house, we spent every free moment unpacking and getting it put together. The entire process was extremely difficult. We were smiling one second and crying the next. BUT, was it worth it? TOTALLY! We are finally at a place where we can relax a bit. We are working into a new routine and are absolutely, without a doubt, LOVING our new home. It is perfect for us. We have definitely found our "happily ever after."
