When we moved, I really thought we'd be fine. Hulk was young (it was just before his 2nd birthday) and I had moved around a lot as a kid. When we are able to go home, on the last day I always end up in tears begging JC to let Hulk and I stay (but of course we can't because I have commitments here too). Our family has not been to visit us often but we do love it when they come and always wish they could stay longer (and again, I end up in tears when they leave).
Our latest visit was from my MIL. I put her to work almost as soon as she got here and she was a definite boon. She cleaned our apartment (and oven!), packed boxes for our move (we hope next month!), removed Hulk's artwork from the walls, cooked dinner almost every night and even cleaned the dishes after. We were so spoiled. I was afraid Hulk would be irreconcilable after she left but he seems to be doing well. As an added bonus, JC's uncle was in Lexington for business and we were able to meet in Northern Kentucky for dinner last night. His uncle is kept very busy by the company he works for (he's very good at his job) so we were honored that he would take the time out of his schedule to spend with us. And we enjoyed his company :)

In between family visits we have made a habit of talking with our family each Sunday over GoogleHangouts. It makes things a little better.
