The Ups & Downs of Moving

Hey world! I have been living in one insane whirlwind for the past week. I'm not sure the last time I've been more sore. Or more tired. Seriously. Moving is hard work and exhausting. I probably felt this tired was when T was a few weeks old and we were totally sleep-deprived but goodness, I need a vacation!

Our closing was supposed to be yesterday and due to a stupid clerical error on the appraiser's part, more paperwork had to be filed last minute and they pushed closing until this evening. Nevermind that Jared took off work yesterday, we made arrangements with T... UGH! So, if nothing else goes wrong today (fingers crossed!) we'll be finalizing everything this evening and can finally breathe a sigh of relief. I just feel so uneasy with the closing hanging over us at this point. One of those things that until it's 100% official I'm just going to be anxious about it all.

This photo pretty much sums up my current mood. Jared snapped this right before we hauled out the last load of junk from the house. It's true what they say, you always have more stuff than you think you do. We have gotten rid of LOADS of things over the past 6 months (before even deciding we were moving) and I still can't believe how much there was to get out of the house. It's scary how things pile up in places you don't think about. We threw away countless trashbags, made additional trips to the donation center and even sold some last minute things on Craigs List.


And because I'm boring myself to tears talking about moving, who needs to see a couple cute photos of T?! It's Easter week and he has multiple outfits to wear starting with this one ;) Jared got to go overboard on Christmas, I'm choosing to buy too much for T's first Easter.

Pray that we close our house with no more issues tonight!!! xo!

  1. Best wishes your closing goes through! Darn appraisers!!! They are good for nothing, I tell you. I am allowed to say that because I work in appraising. T's outfit is so cute!!! You can never go overboard on holidays. In my humble opinion.

  3. Good luck on the closing! Don't worry, once you move into the new house you will continue to throw stuff away for a long long time! I'm sure our trash people aren't happy with us each week and its not even been a year ;)

  4. Am I depriving R because I am not getting her anything for Easter??? No don't answer that ;) I didn't remember doing anything present-wise for Easter growing up, so it's just not on my radar.

    So we moved from our apartment to our house in June and I had R in August!!! I considered packing and moving and unpacking my weights and cardio for those couple of months haha!

  14. I hope everything goes through with the final moments of closing on the house! I hope the rest of the moving process goes a little more smoothly--and yes, it's crazy how stuff piles up until you don't even remember how you got all of this stuff! We just moved in to our apartment two years ago, but I know we have a LOT more stuff now than when we moved in. Don't exactly know how it happens, because we're not shoppers, either. We like to think about it for a month before even buying Angel a new pair of work pants, lol!

  16. I am the same way about things, I need 100% final confirmation before I can relax. I hope that everything works out and you can be settled in there soon!

  17. Hopefully things went well for you. I had when things happen that we have no control over and it really sends me over the edge but I know that everything happens according to His plans, not mine anyway :)

  18. How exciting that you'll be in a BRAND NEW HOME soon! The stress of moving will all be worth it :)

  19. it's UNBELIEVABLE how much STUFF we all have! When we moved from our teeny tiny apartment we thought'd we'd easily fit everything into 2 cars. Nope, some is still at my parents' house! Where does it all hide??
