3 months later…..
It has been nearly 3 months since we packed up California and headed east to Florida. The journey really started back in January when we decided to make this change, but we are getting closer to see our move completed. We found a house a month ago and have been going through the escrow process, which I can tell you has been even more stressful than our first house purchase.
We found a cute (meaning smaller than our previous house) house literally 2 blocks from my parent’s house. From 2000 miles away to 2 blocks away. That’s the biggest change.
We have been staying in a vacation rental for the last 3 months and I am totally over it. It has a kitchen smaller than my smallest kitchen as a single person. Try cooking a meal with 3 in a room that is has foot room of 2 feet by 4 feet. Many tempers have been lost and I hate that.
Our closing is on Thursday. We get our keys and sign over our life savings. Then the fun begins. Movers come Saturday, then again on Tuesday with the rest of our stuff. I really miss my bed and good nights of sleep.
Luckily Emily started school last week, so she’s getting into a routine again. I look forward to getting into a routine myself. I’ll report back again after we are physically in our house. In the mean time, here are some pictures from our summer adventures.
