We are now on the home stretch, actually in exactly one week from today we will already be in Idaho. I'm so ready to be home, so ready to be in the new house, to unpack, to make it our house, to cook and relax and enjoy the pool and the land and everything that comes with this new chapter.
I started losing steam two days ago, I fell asleep at 6pm while sitting on the couch just watching a show on the laptop. Next thing I knew my kids and hubby were waking me up and saying that I was literally drooling, my head laying back on the couch, mouth open, snoring kinda thing.
They were amused because I don't ever do this when I'm sleeping, but I think the exhaustion is kicking in.
So, already had the walk through with the movers, already started packing the vehicles with boxes we're taking, already weighed the vehicles, registrations all done and up to day, etc etc and etc.
Next week the movers will be here and then it's really IT.
Sometimes it's hard to imagine that we're at this point, you always think you have time, more time, more years, but it all flies by so very fast doesn't it?
I'm feeling excited and I'm also feeling extremely sad, I don't know if I'm ready to live this life outside the military, it's going to be such a huge adjustment for us all.
Anyway, I know I've been awful at updating my blog, and I ask that you bear with me just a little longer over the next week as things really kick into high gear.
So I wanted to come in and say a quick hi, let you all know that I haven't forgotten about you, I miss our daily visits and catching up on your blogs too. Something else I am looking forward to doing when this move is all over and done with.
I think the best way to summarize my last week is with a little round up of what I've been doing. Sadly, no pictures, though there will be some tomorrow when I shoot the Super Moon.....don't forget to look to the skies tomorrow, you won't want to miss it :)
On my bedside table:
On the TV:
Unforgettable (really enjoying this one)
The American Baking Competition
The Haunting of.....
Devious Maids and Under the Dome are both premiering this week and I'm curious, so may catch those on Hulu to see if they're good.
Finding as many Portuguese recipes as possible and cooking them
Learning to live off the grid
On my mind:
The drive (please pray for me, I do NOT like driving and especially highway/freeway driving so this is very nerve wrecking for me)
What life will be like, new things to do and see
To have a strong faith and to not worry
About chickens, raising chickens and everything involved with the process
Meals from the pantry and fridge
Lists, lists and more lists
Piles of boxes to move
Looking forward to:
A country home with land, gardening, canning, living quietly
4th of July Parade and Picnic
Farmer's Market every Saturday morning
Opening the Etsy store
My brother and his family arriving next month
Having my husband home every day, even if it's just for the moment
The excitement on my children's faces when they talk about going home
