We did it. Moving was… a challenge. To say the least. but it was also full of a surprising amount of family time and hidden joys. And we all love the new house that we are renting, so at this point I’m going to say “It was worth it”.
We caved and let the movers help us pack for a couple hours, we had to have Bodie’s car towed to the new house, we ended up skipping celebrating Halloween, All Souls, and All Saints. We aren’t totally unpacked yet, and probably won’t be for a little while… but that’s all okay. Because we did it.
And there were some incredibly sweet moments, like Miriam napping on the floor of our old apartment while I cleaned:
And sitting on a giant mountain of boxes after the movers came and packed our things…
and the sweet time we spent together as a family doing things like watch Bodie try to jump his car without getting electrocuted, rejoicing in our decision NOT to stay in a hotel room that was just one step too skeezy feeling, and eating WaWa dinner in the parked car WHILE movers loaded all our things into the truck.
Speaking of food, there were some very delicious times too. Since our hotel didn’t have a kitchen (but it did have a fridge!) we ate at various local restaurants. I had a particularly amazing salad at Winberies. It had sautéed apples, blue cheese, and candied walnuts… delicious foods of fall.
I also have to give a shout out to Kingston Deli, a local place I used to stop at with my mom that has amaaazing deli sandwiches. Bodie and I each had some version of a reuben, eaten in our second (okay technically third) hotel room of the move.
But now we are here and here is feeling more like home every day. We are getting through the hard work of unpacking, we have started to have a couple friends (who won’t mind our boxes and bags) over.
So that’s where I’ve been, and I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but I’m just going to be okay with that. I love blogging, and don’t want to quit, but between moving, holidays, and being in my third trimester things are just going to be a little slower around here.
Speaking of slowly, I’m not going to do any new house pictures or baby bump pictures in this post sadly, because that would just delay publishing and it has been sitting here partially written for like… two weeks. So, I love you all, we are good here (if a bit busy), and I’ll write again soon.
