So long, old friend
Well, last night was our last night in our house. We've been there for almost seven years, just 2 months shy. We actually closed escrow on 9-11, THE 9-11. And we got married that week, too. Come to think of it, that week was just about as stressful as this week has been! It's been a good home to us: we first slept there as husband and wife; we brought both of our babies home there; we've got great memories of starting our family there. But we've just outgrown it, the walls feel like they are starting to close in around the blocks and baby dolls. I'm typing this from my parent's house now. The kids are asleep here in the guest room and Adam is still at the house, packing the remaining odds and ends, rolling up rugs, and taking apart furniture. It was eerily echo-y in the house this afternoon, with all the hardwood floors and half empty rooms. The kids have been out of sorts, too, not understanding why all their toys are boxed up. I'll be so glad when this is all over and we're settled in our new place. See you on the other side!
