Jeff officially is a home owner again! He closed on the house on Thursday. We unpacked the things I had bought for the house (soap, shower curtains, toilet paper, etc). Friday we welcomed his parents and took one trip to the storage unit and the house. Saturday was the big day and we wanted to empty as much as possible out of the two storage units Jeff had rented. We hoped that going from about 9 am until about 4 pm would be good enough.
Naturally we didn’t sleep well Friday night, and were ready to go early Saturday morning. Which meant we were done with all our trips by 1 pm! We made some sense of the chaos and called it good enough.
I’m typing this Saturday evening as we took a break from his parents (they have a hotel room for the weekend since the condo only has one bedroom). And when they are ready they will come to the condo and then we will all get dinner.
Moving is hard. No matter how organized you are, or how go with the flow you are, it just takes a lot of patience. And my patience is always directly related to how many good nights of sleep I have had in the last week, which hasn’t been much. When I’m stressed I tend to wake up early and not get all the sleep I need.
But it is all coming together. Maybe it is slow for some, maybe others find it too fast. Life keeps on moving.
How do you like to move? Get it done in one big crazy day? Or work at it as you are able?
