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!

Oh, moving is so bittersweet. Nice to purge stuff and get a bigger place...sad to leave the memories and stressful to pack and to clean... Speaking of, let me know if I can watch the kids for you or help you clean your place or anything. I'm around! I'll see you tomorrow! :)

I'm sure you are going to miss your cute little house (especially while cleaning the new big house)but at least you can go visit the cute little house anytime you want. And just think how much extra space those kiddies are going to have to run around and make noise. You are all going to be so happy!!!!
