Packing up...again

IMG_5445

I'm eating my homemade ice cream out of tupperware for lunch. It's Butter Pecan and I can honestly say that every person in this house is absolutely addicted to it. Butter + cream + nuts + sugar it's kind of a no-brainer. 

It's hard for me to say it because it still seems so surreal, but the last few weeks I have been packing and packing and packing up again. Yes, we have only been here 5 months. Yes, we didn't unpack much so it makes it a whole lot easier + we saved all our boxes and paper. And yes, the last 2 moves we did were corporate ones where I basically didn't have to lift a finger so this one kinda sucks.

I hate packing. 

The good news though is that we bought a house which will be our very own!! And it's only a couple of miles away from our current rental and two blocks from the girls' school. There is a neighborhood pool, parks and we are super close to the city rec center and library. I cannot wait.

Meanwhile, everything is being sifted through and sorted out. We are down to packing the stuff that we use daily (ice cream machine ;) and waiting for better weather (and a husband home) to do the garage.


In case you are curious this is our 11th move in (almost) 10 years of marriage.
Ava's 7th move (she is 7) and
the 5th move since The Dirt began in 2007.

I'm soooo ready to settle.
And put down roots.
And have a garden again.
And eager to make this new little place our very own.


Ahhhhh!


ps. i just commited to doing this in the fall:



i think i might puke

You are crazy!!! But soo excited that you are buying your own house and able to settle. That is soo very exciting. Just think hopefully this will be your last move for a VERY VERY long time. :)

it's funny that you saved your boxes and paper. We're unpacking in our rental and saving everything, too. Our last two moves have been corporate moves and I'm not excited for the next one, because we'll be doing it on our own.

So excited you guys found a great house, especially one close to the school and other fun stuff. Can't wait to see pics!

Just a little reminder that you are a freaking hero!!! So happy for your family to be moving into your own space. Sounds like a dreamy location, and the perfect, safe place to train for Ragnar! You wild woman you! Rawr!
