Our apartment is empty. Our cars are stuffed full. I’m blogging live from beautiful and scenic Winnemucca, Nevada.
How did this week go? Well.. it definitely went, thats for sure. We used a great u-pack freight service, basically we stuffed a trailer full of our stuff, and someone else is moving it for us. Awesome, right? The trailer was delivered last Tuesday, and we spent four days packing, moving, lifting, boxing, taping, and cleaning. It will all be delivered to Redding on Tuesday. Jazz had to work most of the day today, so we drove about 5 1/2 hours this evening to get a good head start.
As I was packing up my 100th million box, I thought to myself, how in the sam hell did we accumulate so much junk. When we moved in to the apartment, we had NOTHING. Then we got married, got a lot of new stuff, had a baby, got even more new stuff. The results are catastrophic. Junk central.
It was a little sad pulling out of our apartment driveway today. We LOVED living in our little basement abode. After all, this was the apartment that we moved into as sparkly newlyweds. It was the place we brought our beautiful newborn baby girl home to. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries and holidays there. We have so many wonderful memories, it will always be a special to us.
I’m excited about the move. I’m excited to unpack and make a new home for new memories. I’m excited to be close to my Mom and Dad. I’m excited for sunny days and warmer winters. I’m excited to explore the area with Jazz and Isabelle. I’m excited to embark on our new adventure together.
My dad ran into an old friend of mine at the mall last night. As they were chatting, he was telling her about our move home- he told her it was the “best Christmas present ever.”
I think I have to agree.
