We moved into our new home on Saturday -- when the weather was misty/sleety and in the 20's -- and we hardly noticed. To us, it was a great day!
The movers arrived at our former home at 8:45 that morning and I started crying almost immediately. I know - people always talk about the emotions tied up in their homes. I knew I'd probably cry, but I wasn't sure when it would get me. Well, let me tell ya - it was within the first few minutes! They had just started carrying things out when I had to disappear (a couple of times) for a little while. The house on Oak Ridge represented so much for me as an individual, and to us as a couple. I just had to grieve a little bit.
And then........ We walked into OUR NEW HOME and the butterflies started! Everything is so fresh and clean. It has a great "new home" smell!! We absolutely love it!! Sure, there are some quirks that we'll have to get used to (meaning: change so I like it!), but that's part of the fun.
This house is layed out so differently from our old house, that it's a challenge trying to figure out where everything will live. So far, we're just putting things somewhere "close", knowing that time will help us figure everything out. It's going to be fun.
Unfortunately, I have no idea where my camera cable ended up!! We finally got internet today, so I was excited to update my blog, but now I can't upload any pictures. Ha Ha! Oh well - this just means you'll have to come back another day!!
Well, I'm off to tackle another box! See ya later alligator!
