We close today on our new home. In a matter of hours, that house will be ours. We will walk in, take a deep breath, and begin painting. And yes, that is when it really becomes ours.
Over the next three days, there will be chaos. I will forget where I packed our toothbrushes. I will find myself at one house wishing I had brought something from the other house. I will lose track of time and meals and naps. I will get yelled at by M and my parents for trying to lift boxes that I really shouldn’t be lifting right now. I will try to make the chaos fun, and at least not overwhelming, for Baby.
And I am thankful that we are able to do this. I am thankful that we can move into this new house, this space that is right for us, right for our growing family. I am thankful that my parents are happy to give of their time, talents, and resources endlessly to make this move as easy on us as possible.
And I’ll be so thankful when I wake up Tuesday morning in a new house. Feels like a new start. And I love new starts.
Happy weekend, all!
