I can finally say…. we’re in our new house! Yippee!
Friday evening my husband and I moved everything out of storage, into the uhaul, then out of the Uhaul and into our home. It was freezing and exhausting, and I must have gained an inch of muscle in my biceps. I have no idea how we managed to lift the washer, king size bed and all. Bed’s are just an awkward shape to move. I think I should be on survivor, don’t you? I would win the strongest women alive contest. At one point my husband and I were bickering back and forth, because he was frustrated that I wasn’t lifting whatever it was the right way or whatever and he said, obviously without thinking, you’re not very strong. And my goodness. I looked at him and said ARE YOU KIDDING ME? First, I push a seven pound child out of me without medication and now I lift a washing machine and a couch with my bare hands in ten degree weather. Do you know who you’re looking at here? Huh honey pie?
After we were finished I wanted to cry myself a lake and float in it while sipping a margarita. But the lake was frozen and I’m really not into ice fishing, so I had myself a Diet Coke instead.
It was so fun unpacking all our boxes. If you ever feel sorry for yourself and think that you don’t have enough clothes, or if your kids complain about having no toys, pack up all your things for a couple months. You really forget that you have so much! I kept pulling things out and going oh this is so cute! I forgot I had this! I thought I was a horrible mother and depriving my child of toys, but turns out he has plenty. Then there were some things that I thought, why did I bring this all the way across the United States? Now my closet is too full and I have way too many options. Each morning I’ve now got to decide what I’m going to wear, rather than just picking from a few shirts!
Tonight will be Lucas’ first night in his own real bed in his own room in almost two months. I think I’m really going to miss having him in my room with me! Although, I am very excited to start sleeping at night again. I’m going to start night weaning him (again) and hopefully he’ll be out of all his bad habits soon.
Many pictures and stories to come!
