The Beginning of a New Chapter

A LOT has been going on lately. Just a week after we said our good-byes to daddy we received an offer on our house! As soon as I received the phone that we had an offer my eye started twitching. It was twitching on and off for over a week. I'm excited that we've sold our house, but that meant trying to find an apartment, a storage unit, a moving company, etc. We found an apartment the next week which has made my eye twitching stop. Finally.

We'll be closing in about 3 1/2 weeks so I've been trying to pack up what we can. I still need to find a storage unit and some muscles to help me move metal shelving and garage stuff. I still need to call a moving company too, but for some reason I keep putting it off until tomorrow. I better make some phone calls this weekend and get the ball rolling.

Now that I think about it, it's pretty convenient for my husband to be deployment during this whole thing. He doesn't have to search for apts., pack, load, move and unpack. Don't get me wrong though, I wouldn't want to trade places. I can barely stand it outside when it's 80+ degrees out, let alone over 120 degrees.

Our boys have been handling everything nicely so far. They have no idea that there are more changes ahead of them though. They know we sold our house and will be moving to an apt., but I don't think they understand the concept. Poor things...first daddy leaves to help people and  now we're taking them out of the only house they've known and moving into a new place. I know they'll do great, but I still worry about them.


  1. I always apply for movers online! Take a look around ... you can probably do the same :) Good luck!

  2. There are a ton of reputible companies available nationwide you can find online. :-) Congrats and good luck in the move!
