This will be brief as we’re in the throes of unpacking, reeling from yet another loss in the family, and since today also happens to be a special mermaid’s tenth birthday… By God’s grace we moved into our house over the weekend, and the timing indeed proved providential.
We certainly aren’t finished with the long list of projects planned for the new house, but we are relieved to have all our belongings consolidated into one place for the first time in a couple months now. Unpacking boxes from the storage unit has felt a bit like Christmas!
A couple quick before & after’s of our progress thusly:
Moving is hard work! Sincerest thanks to my sister & brother-in-law and our friends the Colbys for several times entertaining/feeding our kiddos, to my dad & stepmom for physically moving our every earthly possession yet AGAIN, to my mom & her partner for delivering dinner, and to husband’s sister & her husband for lending us their giant trailer to haul our junk out of the storage unit. Mostly I’m grateful to my amazing husband for moving us home, buying the house next door to my sister, literally rebuilding the house over the last few weeks while juggling the career that pays for it, and just generally enduring the craziness that is marriage to yours truly.
