I’m still here. Still alive. Currently being swallowed by boxes and garbage bags and plastic tubs and useless junk and HOW DID WE ACQUIRE SO MANY THINGS.
We’ve have given away sooo much stuff. Probably too much. I have a feeling we’re going to get into our new house and regret giving some things away. Like our dining room table, our drier, Jonah’s bedroom set, the double stroller I didn’t feel like fixing, all of my food storage containers. It’s a bit much. But it feels good to be down to the bare minimum right now.
Real talk, though. I’m stressed to the MAX. And it’s not like I feel stressed or out of control, but I keep having these moments where I’m totally delusional. I’m so tired and have so many things on my mind, sometimes I start talking and Zach’s like, “What just came out of your mouth?” and I’m like, “I have no idea!” It’s crazy train ticket for one over here these days.
I’m looking forward to getting settled in our new place and I’m trying not to think about the fact that we’re going to have to pack it all up again in about 6 months when our house is finished. People tell me moving down the street is worse that moving across the country, but I’m trying not to believe it. Surely nothing can be worse than trying to find a month to month rental from 12 hours away?? SURELY.
So that’s where we’re at. Frantically trying to throw the last things into boxes so we can be on our way. This week is all about getting shots and cavities filled, Anna’s getting her tongue tie clipped (HOLD ME.) and all of that fun medical stuff before we have the annoying health insurance lag. Moving is annoying in so many ways, but we’re so excited.
So who’s in the Springfield, Massachusetts area? Let’s hang out this summer, eh?
Also. Follow me on instagram (@klavalley) for your daily dose of LaValley moving fun. It’s mostly just photos of boxes and Anna right now, but she’s cute so that makes up for it, right?
