Most everyone knows the rollercoaster ride we've been on since April 10th of this year. As a result of the latest set back (buyers backing out of the purchase of our home) we have had to tap into every resource to save the move TO and the job IN Florida. We are down to the wire with all of our belongings in a 16' x 8' x 8' portable storage unit, THE POD. We are right at the wire with covering closing costs and not losing out on what we have already invested. We also found out yesterday that I will need to get health coverage for the first 90 days to keep myself and Liam covered so we can be added to Brian's insurance (employee only covered at start) after his 90 day probationary period. So it came down to, move the POD, or get health insurance. We have jumped through so many flaming hoops. I can only believe that this experience and the extreme emotions dealing with one set back after another has strengthened our family in ways we never thought possible. So I am throwing my pride out the window and asking for help. My Mom's piano is in the POD. I know that may seem like something silly, but it is really my heart's connection with her. It always has been. With the current weather, it's really becoming necessary to get the POD to a climate controlled environment as soon as possible in Florida. If I can reschedule the POD move (currently it will sit in the driveway until I can pay them to move it), we should be able to have our belonging a week or so after we move. Our whole life is in there. We paired down everything we own into this little unit. And it was heartbreaking. But if we can stay together, do this move as a family, I know that the future will be wonderful. I wouldn't ask if it wasn't my last resource. Anything would help. I thank you all for your amazing support throughout this ordeal. And I am grateful for your friendships, words of wisdom, encouragement and love.
