Well friends, we are moved! Sorry for the radio silence - I had forgotten how utterly exhausting moving can be! This post will probably sound as jumbled as I have felt recently, but oh how thankful I am for this sun shining day! Frank pointed out the other day that so far every time we move it has poured down rain for days on end. Oh moving. Even though we were extremely blessed to have movers do all of the packing and hauling - for some reason I was so tired on Tuesday that I slept 12 HOURS! Frank said he was bumping and dropping things all evening and I didn't even budge. Sweet sleep. Apparently watching people move our things is exhausting... haha :) No, actually I had spent a good portion of Tuesday unpacking things (with some help, bless their hearts). We finally have a pathway to the front door and to the refrigerator, AND the boxes upstairs are completely unpacked. Progress!! I refuse to show anyone photos of what it looks like because really it is just embarrassing how poor of a job I did pre-moving to prepare for this part. Even though we upgraded in square footage in the new townhouse, the storage / closet space is FAR less than our last home. This means you cannot hide things you don't want to deal with right now - they are out there for everyone to see! I have learned a TON during this move. I feel like I need to write a whole post on tips and tricks to make moving easier and the unpacking shorter! Coming soon to a blog near you...
In other news, we always find reasons to laugh and smile amidst chaos. For example, we have been sleeping on our mattress in our master bedroom on the floor. Apparently they did not have queen beds in the 70's when our place was built and our bed frame does not fit up the stairs! ha! The worst part is that Frank had built the frame (yes he is every girls dream, and it is beautiful!) the only problem is that he build it so that it can't break down into parts...annnd so now it sits in our living room haunting us with the reality that we might have to get another frame. THEN yesterday I was on my way to Starbucks to sit and check emails (since we don't have internet yet) and my car wouldn't start! God works all things for the good of those who love him though, and at that very moment my grandparents had "stopped by" to see our place and bring us supper! The grace and love of God is beyond my earthly comprehension. He cares about the little things. Thankfully my car ended up being fine and is now starting like a champ. Who knows what was going on! We are so excited to be here, be moved and feel so blessed by all the help from people and everyone who has reached out to make us feel so loved. Thank you!
Lastly, we so miss the third member of our little family! Lexi, who is neurotic and severely afraid of boxes, large moving objects and us leaving her has been at my parents house while we have been in transition. I think her little heart would have exploded if she had been here for a house full of boxes! Its terrible but it makes me laugh when I really stop and think about how weird her fears are! I mean, who has a dog that is afraid of boxes? Anyway, thanks for checkin in and letting me process this crazy life change with you! I'm so excited to finally get to be reunited with our big, sweet furry friend this weekend!
I hope you have an amazing weekend!
