In Between

We moved out!

We went from this. . .


to this. . .


to this.


I don’t think I have ever worked so hard physically as I have the last few months- and especially the last week. We either gave away, sold, or packed twenty-six years of accumulated possessions from my parents, us, and our children.  I mentioned on Facebook a week or so ago that I dreamed I was running a marathon (if you know me, you know this would be a nightmare!).  Well, last night I dreamed I was gliding around on a Segway!

There is a HUGE sense of relief at having completed this arduous task.  Our backs are unstiffening, and our joints are no longer screaming as we make our last good-byes.

And so now we are in between houses and living in hotels. There is a bit of a feeling that I should be packing or cleaning something, but it’s OK. And we are looking forward to the next part of the adventure- MOVING IN!

    Ben and I can absolutely empathize with you! So many emotions as well as aches and pains… all part of the adventure. Enjoy this time in your life!

    Congratulations on the move and all of your hard work to get it all done in time!
