It's here. The transition. The uprooting. The move. From garage apartment on my grandparents' farm to a little fixer-upper farmhouse practically within eyesight of where we are now. Just a good walk along the stream and you'd find yourself in our new backyard.
It's been a long, hard road. I'm excited. I'm giddy. I'm exhausted. I'm overwhelmed. The apartment is in that cluttered state as bits and pieces get boxed up or moved around. Things are starting to disappear. Some spaces are looking empty. Others seem so full of 'stuff' that I wonder how we'll ever be out of here by Saturday.
I think the girls are ready too. It's been the big tease these past few months. And especially in the last few weeks as they see their toys and books and dressers disappear from here and show up in their new room. I'm dealing with a lot more whining, more tears, more boredom than I have in quite awhile. I'm trying my best not to shove their needs to the back burner while I pack one more box or do one more load of laundry. They are hungry for my attention.
So, I'm signing off for now. My new internet equipment won't even arrive at the house until Thursday and if all goes well, I'm hoping to see you again here in a week. In a way, I thankful for the forced hiatus. This part of me needs to be quiet for a bit, while I work to settle in to our new house and make it our new home.
I'll be popping in to check email here and there, as I can, if I can.
Thank you for following along in this journey with me–being a place to unload, share progress,excitement, frustration and joy.
Life is sweeter when you can share it with dear friends.
See you on the other side.
I'll announce the giveaway winner a little later today, at the bottom of that post.
