Doesn't that sound blissful and wonderful?
But here's the thing about moving. No matter how good it is, it's still crazy and completely nutso, mostly because the world doesn't stop when it's time to pack up the house, load up the Uhaul, and drive across town/state/country.
|Soon the garage won't look like this!|
The laundry still needs to be washed and folded and, if I'm feeling lucky, put away. Or, in this case, enough for one week put in suitcases and the rest boxed up.
School. Although this week they are getting another crash course in home economics, mouse trap setting, moving, and home decorating.
Baseball, baseball, softball schedules.
Toddlers. Adorable and loveable, but not particularly helpful.
Keeping rental house cleaned for showings.
Add in getting the new house ready for us to move in and packing, moving, and getting the rental house cleaned up to vacate and it's a full schedule.
This is exacerbated by the great news that our landlord is letting us out of our lease a month early. That means we have to be out Sunday instead of May 31. Hooray for saving money, but the time crunch is real, especially since we just found this out on Thursday.
This is also exacerbated by a traveling husband who's been gone 5 out of the last 6 weeks. Thankfully he brings home enough bacon that we can purchase our house, so I am certainly grateful for his job, but unfortunately the timing of his intense travel schedule has been the opposite of ideal.
The bad news is, this week will be insane. I have my lists written so I know what I need to get done each day. Now I'm just waiting to see what will happen to upset my plans, because obviously that has to happen at least once.
The good news is that on the other side of this week is home.
And we are absolutely thrilled!
|like this thrilled all over again!|
Hopefully you'll understand if it's a little quiet around these parts this week. Boxes to be packed and children to tend to and all of the rest. What are you looking forward to this week? Go get it!
