Home Sweet Home

We’re moving.

Still.

It’s been three weeks and even with all the stuff we’ve gotten rid of, and hiring some moving guys, we’re moving crap.

Still.

I teased Jamison the last time we moved and told him if we were moving again he’d have to have get people to come in and have everything packed, moved and cleaned. Granted we did have some moving help, both the hired guys and some very wonderful friends, and the cleaning service is going to clean the other house, but I’m exhausted. I started packing and going through stuff more than 2 months ago. So in moving math that’s almost 3 months of moving.

Moving.

This time I’m not so much joking…if we move again there will be complete packing and moving service. Heck, I might even have them unpack on the other end. If we move again. And quite frankly folks, that’s a big IF as far as I am concerned, because did I mention we’re moving?

I finally got to cook a meal in this house on Monday. I had baked Jamison his gluten free peanut butter muffins he eats for breakfast, but we’ve been shuffling back and forth between this house and the old one when he gets off work a lot, and considering he doesn’t get home until 7, there hasn’t been a whole lot of cooking.

I even went wild yesterday and baked banana bread. I swear the banana’s made me do it…they kept whispering, “We’re perfect for banana bread!” and “You really should make some banana bread!” How could I not listen?

On top of all of this I’ve fallen behind in school because there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get things done, because…you guess it…we’re moving.

But all in all I love the new house. I love my view. I love that my desk is set up to look out over the water. It’s calming to me. Alexis loves it too. Having a lake in the backyard is a novelty that isn’t fading with her. She’s a water child, just like me.

With all of the boxes still here and there, and the unpacked things, and the general chaos, I have moments of complete despair. I don’t function well when things aren’t ordered, and I can’t get it ordered fast enough. We’ll return to regularly scheduled programming soon. I have to find my kitchen in all the boxes and moving minutia. Despite all of that though, I really do love it here.
