It's been a pretty fast week for us, I was hoping time would slow down and let me enjoy the last few days we have on this base, but I guess not. As the move gets closer I'm filled with such sadness, I can't believe that in a week or so we will be out of here forever, my home......it's sad!!!
So this weekend we have tons of things to do, here's our to-do list just to give you an idea:
- Dismantle trampoline and get it ready for the move
- Clean out Grill/Smoker for move
- Mow front and back yards
- Empty shed
- Take swing set and other trash to the dump
- Take down all shelves, pictures etc
- Take apart kitchen table
- Take apart bunkbeds and Nicholas car bed
- Get rid of anything we don't want the movers packing
- Weigh Truck and SUV
- Replace tires on SUV
- Finish packing whatever we're taking with us for the Partial Move.
- Clean house for inspection
And that is just what I can remember off the top of my head, I have everything written down on a list and let me tell you, one look at it is enough to make me want to cry and run for the hills. Wish I could enlist the help of a whole team of people but I think I have the most important one on my side, God.
Yep, I hope He's ready for me, because I plan on whining my way through this LOL
I have to keep reminding myself that I can do all of this and that it's nothing so trivial or mundane that He won't be interested in. I'm sure He will help and I plan on being aware of what is going on so that I can relay to you exactly the instances where I noticed Him at work.
The kids are starting to ask questions, lots of questions, "but can we come back here when we're done moving?"......."I don't want to go, I'm gonna miss my house"....."but what if the movers loose my toys?"......."but I don't want to leave lola and bella behind".
It's tough on them they don't understand why we have to leave our home behind and explaining to them that we're going to a new home doesn't seem to make it any easier. Such is the life of a military family though, moving from place to place, you don't really have a HOME until the day you retire and buy yourself a house.
Moving on, I'm going to try to update my food blog today, it's been a few days since I've posted anything in there, guess due to the fact that I really haven't spent much time in the kitchen and the meals I prepare in the middle of this confusion are simple, quick and not blog worthy....BELIEVE YOU ME!!!
Unless you're interested in frozen pizza, grilled cheese sandwiches and spaghetti....which by the way, my family loves but I've got it coming out the wazoo right now. !!!!
I'm going to try and come by to say hi, if not this morning then later tonight after the kids are in bed.
Hope you're all having a great friday, enjoy the warm weather!!!
