Packing and moving

Via Pinterest
The time has finally come-we are in the middle of packing and moving. We thought we had another month to get it done, but Monday night my realtor called and said we had only one week to get out of there! With tears streaming down my face, I called my cousin, who will be renting from and asked her if there was anyway we could move in sooner than our original February 1st date. Thankfully she said yes, otherwise we would have been homeless for a few weeks. Talk about lighting a fire under us! Yesterday I got some boxes and the packing began last night after work. Thank goodness we had already started a little, otherwise we would be hurting even worse. The plan is to pack as much as we can after work each night, load it in to the back of the truck, and Cody will unload it at the new house on his lunch break. Hopefully by this weekend we will only have the big stuff left. My parents and my brother will be there to help with that. It is a little depressing knowing that we are losing our home due to something that was out of our control. We worked so hard to make that house our home and for nothing. Don't get me wrong, we will be living in a bigger house for less money, but it isn't ours to do what we want to it. Someday, we will have the home of our dreams, but today we just wait and let life do what it wants to do. So while I pack, load, clean, move and unpack, I may be away for just a short while. I will soon be back to share our new place with you. Thank you as always for all of your wonderful comments and thoughtfulness-it really does mean the world to me!

It's not easy to pack and unpack, and move out of one place into another. I know well, as we have had several moves throughout the years. Once you get settled though, everything seems to fall into place. When we moved to Southern California, we gave away many things to lighten the load. I wish you well in your move, and I will be here when you return. Good luck, my friend.

Oh Trisha,
How on earth did i miss this news? I am so sorry sweetie! You and Cody don't deserve this...but it must mean there are brighter days around the corner that you need to prepare for. Sounds so pollyanna...but better than doom and gloom, right?
Chin up girlfriend! I'm saying a prayer right now for you.
