Moving!! Wrapping up a crazy year :)

We are officially moving!  Our house sold in 21 days, and we found one that we just LOVE!  It's ON the lake (you can have a dock, small boat, but no swimming), so it's not a party lake, but a relaxing lake.  Our date is January 3rd.  2013 was tough...so I feel excited and BLESSED to start 2014 off in a new home.  

For those of you who are new, I just finished rads June 21, 2013 after two major surgeries to remove 1/4 of my jaw and a 4cm tumor that had decided to live there.  The surgeries I did ok with...the rads, not so much.  I had a rough time.  Be encouraged that things WILL turn around for you.  I'm 5 months out and am working part time and packing up my house. Things get better....a little each day. You've found the best group of people in the world on this site!

For those of you who supported and encouraged me-THANK YOU!  I'm forever grateful and want to pay it all forward. Y'all are the best and are greatly appreciated!

So excited for you!  What a neat way to begin a New year (and well deserved).  It's crazy what time does for us, we do what we have to do day by day to get through treatment, then slowly start to recover.  Here's to a NEW YOU and  NEW start!   :)

It has been quite a year for you, I am happy for you to be so upbeat.  In the midst of all this life changing events you hung in there for the entire treatment ride.

Take this move in your stride (moving can be terribly stressful).  If you get overwhelmed, I am sure there is a website like (H&N) to help out.

Enjoy your lake life moving forward; it only gets better from this past year.

out with the old, and in with the new....and sometimes that includes houses!!  I don't envy the packing up and moving the "stuff".....I do remember that the excitment of getting to put it all into a new enviroment took a lot of the stress out of that part.

Congratualtions on a new year, a new life.....and a new home....

Congrats on the new home, and a good move forward. I too moved from St.Louis to Austin this past May. It was pretty stressfull as I had to come off the trial I was on 3 weeks before the move date due to progression if disease, and start a new trial just 4 days after I got to Austin. The change has really been good for me.

All the best, and enjoy your new adventure.

Congrats on the new housel...In four years I can retire and get a house on a lake....I am of course believing I will still be alive and NED in 4 years.  Hang in there!  It keeps getting better.   Ann

Moving is a great way to get some good exercise, I moved into a new home on October 4th, still unpacking, I have a 2 car garage but find it hard to park a bike in there with all of our stuff. I see a big yard sale in my future. Denis
