Moving Day!


Moving day! You  are finally here. Yes, today I woke in one room, in one house, and am now going to sleep in a different room. A different room, in a different house, in a different neighborhood.

the view I saw as I woke up. a very blank wall

Now mind you this rental house is only 3.2 miles from our old house (I may or may not have mapped it on my phone). However the neighbor hood, the people, and everything else feels very different.
This is a new adventure. That is what my parents keep calling it. And, in all honesty, they are right. It is a new adventure. However, the effort and strength that has gone into today all only to get us in to this temporary rental does not excite me. Knowing that soon we will have to do it all again. The boxes, the stress, and the moving. The great thing is that once I pack again it will be for a permanent home instead of trying to not unpack a box of stuff that we may not need all in fear of having to repack it.

the man and me. thank you for all the help moving Donny!


I am trying to look at the bright side of everything. I can say the move went well. We only had one little hiccup along the way (who knew that the refrigerator’s wheel had fallen off!? sorry dings in the floor…you will be fixed soon). For only the small hiccup we can thank the Lord for. There are many worse things that could have been broken or someone who could have gotten hurt. So that is great! The house is cute, very small, but it is cute. I also have my room set up in a decent way. There is only one box that is left in my room. For that I am grateful.
I am sad though. Seeing my empty room was hard.
I do know that no matter how long we have to stay here, 21 days or 5 months, God has´╗┐ a plan in it all. That is what I am trusting in. Thank you Lord for always seeing the bigger picture then what I can see in the right here and right now. Thank you Lord for always having your hand on the situation. It is nice knowing that we can trust in that. I pray for the safety of my family and new home tonight as we are in a neighborhood that we know nothing about. All of your prayers for my family are greatly appreciated.
Now I am off to bed. I am exhausted after a long day of lifting, and I only did the light stuff compared to the men who helped!

    Awww I'm sure you'll learn to love the new place, moving is never easy! We're moving in August and I already feel overwhelmed with decorating and everything else!

      Our new house is just a rental so we are trying not to get to settled and unpack since we do not know how long we will be there.
      I am looking forward to the official house and making it our own. Enjoy the moving process! It is definitely stressful, but is exciting to go on a new adventure.
