It was very bittersweet, and I can honestly say that it hasn't quite hit me yet--I don't think. Last night, my husband was feeling pretty nostalgic about it all and he couldn't quite wrap his finger around the fact that I wasn't emotional about it, too. I told him we don't always need to experience the same emotion at the same time--that my time for reminiscing would show up eventually.
Everything happened so quickly today. Since we are moving because of my husband's Residency in the NAVY, movers were sent to our house to pack up everything. And when I say *everything* I mean E V E R Y T H I N G ! Right down to our last Cheerio, folks! I swear, if I wasn't careful they would have packed me up in a box!
My anxiety genuinely thanks these kind movers for making my life so much easier. I seriously don't know what I would have done without them! They packed up our ENTIRE house in just a matter of hours! I kid you not--it was ahhhhmazing!
Since we can't move into our new house until Friday, we will be shacking it up with my lovely in-laws for the night (seriously, I have the best in-laws ever! & I'm not just saying that just in case they read this LOL). Then, we are heading out to spend the night with family Thursday, before driving the rest of the way Friday morning.
I'm super excited! Emmalyn keeps talking about her "New Blue House". In fact, she's so thrilled, that at 4 in the morning, she couldn't stop talking about it. It would have been cute if it hadn't had been in the middle of the night! ;)
So far, our moving experience has been pretty dang easy. It helped immensely that Emmy's *favorite* sitter took her out of the house for a few hours so she was out of the movers' way. Plus, our dog Indy, was at my parent's house for the day. He, for sure, would have been mistaken for one of Emmalyn's stuffed animals and packed away!
Welp, I hope the rest of our move is smooth! I'll be sure to update y'all!
