home sweet home

Long time no see… eh?

I have to say that the last month has been nothing but crazy.  From the day we found out that we were going to move… till today… we have been on the go.  It was simply exhausting.  Everyday held something to do.  I’d work.. then go home and work more.  There was tons to pack… stuff to get in order… a new place to find.. etc.  I was always tired and found very little time to relax.  Trying to uproot your life and move 70 miles away in three weeks is tiring.

Moving week came this week.  We packed all of our belongings into a uhaul truck on Tuesday night… and headed north first thing Wednesday morning.  The whole process was very hard on us…. moving is not an easy thing.  By the end of the day we were thoroughly drained.  We went out for dinner and I distinctly remember feeling so out of it… I had nothing left.  We came home to a sea of boxes that would need to be sorted through.  Somehow we got a second wind of sorts and started trying to make sense of the mess that was our new home.

We were up pretty late that night… and that was the start of what would take us till today to finish.  It all came together pretty nicely though.  As it took form… there was that sense of happiness… of being home.  I love our new place.  It feels like the place I’ve always meant to live in.  What is even better is that this is the first place that Ben and I had picked together.  The house we were living in was one I was in before meeting him.  So this place is very much us.. put together by our hands.  It’s a great feeling.

So all that is left to do now is hang a few more pictures and we will be completely settled in.  I start my new job on Tuesday… and haven’t really thought much about it.  I am pretty focused on getting things put together in the house.  Now that it’s all done, I imagine I’ll be thinking more about it.  I am supposed to go have lunch with Issac tomorrow.  It’s been over two weeks since I’ve seen him.  Finding time to see him hasn’t been really easy as I’ve been far too busy.

So that’s where I am right now.  I am very much alive…and quite happy.  It’ll be nice to have more time to relax again.  I can’t wait to get back to a normal schedule.  I should be able to get back to a normal posting schedule too.  So… keep your eyes out for me!



So Ben and I have been thrown into yet another whirlwind.  Late sometime last year, seems like it was October… he and I decided on something we had be talking about for over a year.  We decided that we wanted to move north.  We have friends that live 80ish miles away… which is where a bulk of our friends are.  We both had enough of this town and finally we figured it was time to make the move.

We knew we had to wait to save up some money and such before we could do so.  We’ve got to the point where we have the money to make the move and so now all that was holding us back was me having a job up there.  Ben’s job is closer to there than here.  I knew that it may take some time to find one for me… so I started throwing myself into the search on Monday.  Our plan was to wait till the end of the school year (June) to move.  Little did we know what was going to happen.

I made two phone calls on Monday… and found a job. They need to fill it ASAP.  I was floored.. and excited.  Who knew it was going to be THAT easy?! Not only would I get full time… but I would also make more than I do now.  It was like it was meant to be.. and I knew I couldn’t pass this up.  I didn’t know a chance like that would come by again.  And so.. we found ourselves… thrown into a move that was taking place in three weeks.

To say it’s a bit overwhelming, is an understatement.  We have so much to do.. in such a short period of time.  I’ve been coming home after work each day and packing part of the house up.  We are going up on our day off (Sunday) to look at apartments to move into.  It’s all a bit of a shock.  I’ve lived in this house since the summer of 2003… and so this is all strange for me.  I feel like I’m packing up my house just for fun and that I’m not really moving.  It’s a weird feeling.

So.. the point of this is that my posting will be sporadic.  I have more to do than I care to admit.  It’s hard to believe that this time next month I wont be here.  It’s a good thing though!  We are excited… and nervous.  I can’t wait to see what this chapter of our lives holds for us.

Wish us luck!
