It’s a “Want” Move

Today is moving day.  Well, actually it’s kind of a “pre” moving day.  Today’s the day we take possession of our new place; we’ve rented a U-Haul and we’re moving a lot of the “stuff” ourselves.  The movers are coming on Thursday to do the hard work with our furniture and larger items.  If all goes well, we will be sleeping in our new home in two days time.

The process of this move has taught me so much about myself- about my values and my priorities and my emotions.  It’s been an up-and-down roller coaster because it’s a “want” move rather than a “need” move.  We’ve wanted this for years, we finally decided to go for it, and here we are.

Sigh.  Almost.

We moved into our current home in 2011, so that experience is still fresh in my mind.  And now, only four years yet a lifetime later, we’re moving into what we hope will be our “forever” house.

After I hit “Publish,” I’m going to unplug and pack up our computer.  Next week’s post will be written from a new vantage point in new surroundings.

I’m excited.

I’m scared.

I’m so, so, so happy.

life is too short
