i was hoping to be writing this post from my new office which would mean i'd be settled after moving which now tells you, i am not settled. i'm ok with that...i suppose!
together, the MF and i decided that we were at a good point in our lives and in our relationship to move in. while he is only moving from the loft of the house to the first floor and i am moving about a mile, it has been a process and A LOT of work! with little help from anyone else (we will admit, we didn't ask for it), we moved my queen bed set, couches (full couch, love seat and lazy boy), china hutch, dresser, coffee table, entertainment center and the rest of my belongings to our place.
we definitely made some new memories in this move, one of them including his grandma and i riding in the bed of her truck hanging onto a couch. in the past 4 days, we have been exhausted, skipped working out, ate unhealthy, bruised and cut ourselves, and poor Henry even sprained his ankle (he was such a good helper).
i can't tell you that we are totally organized and settled, in fact, i can see it getting worse before it gets better, but i can tell you that we will get there, little by little. i can also tell you, that we have done all of this (and put together a bed frame and dresser) without a single argument. that's a good sign, right?
i'd be lying if i told you that i am not anxious about getting everything organized and feeling totally settled, but i am taking the time to appreciate this transition period is our lives and simply enjoying this experience. it all boils down to the fact that i am so excited to be living with my best friend and take on this new journey with him and Henry no matter how long it takes us to organize.
how is Henry adjusting??? besides his sprained ankle (which he very dramatically limps when he knows someone is watching), let's just say that he is managing.....
as you can see, he has been clutch in this move, pulling through for us even with a bad ankle....
as if moving isn't crazy by itself, our craziness continues through this next weekend. drew's little sister is graduating this thursday and her big celebration is on sunday. everyone is pitching in and really looking forward to celebrating her, her success and the next journey of her life! besides that, drew has one of his best friend's bachelor party on saturday which i'm sure will put him in prime condition for the graduation party on sunday :)
i am hoping to check in again sometime this week, but between work, unpacking, bar-making, decorating and celebrating, i am not making any promises.
in the meantime, we are currently looking for a solution for all of OUR shoes (along with a butter dish, don't ask), but if anyone has suggestions, i would greatly appreciate it!
always striving for more,
