moving

While I’m packing up our lives, separating items into “storage” and “condo” I keep thinking someone is playing a huge joke on me.  I keep hoping my husband will come home and say, guess what, I worked some magic and we can stay.  But so far, as our possessions are slowly piled into boxes one by one, it hasn’t happened.

I don’t know why I’m so upset by this move.   These four walls hold only a few years of my memories but they are some of the most precious ones.  This is the home my baby spent her first year of life and I have fond memories of bringing her home, here.  Of our first night with her and how freaked out Matt and I were because she wouldn’t stop crying.  Of coming down the stairs after that first night and thinking, will I survive this job of parent hood?  But my wise and encouraging friend, ggsmama said it well.  I will still have those memories no matter where I live.

We’ve done plenty of moving in our 7 years of marriage, I should be very used to the upheaval.  All our moves up till this one have been an improvement in living quarters (bigger and better).  This one is hard because it wasn’t in “the plan”  it’s a slight set back. 

Our first choice of condos to move into didn’t pan out so we are onto choice #2.  It’s bigger and has under ground parking.  Still close to Cherry Creek, Wash Park, Cheeseman Park, City Park, the zoo, Park Hill and much more.  Yes, this place will be our home for the next year. 

I pray for a lot of things these days but mostly peace of mind with this situation (and hey if God wants to throw some money our way, I wouldn’t turn it down).  I pray we can be back in our house next summer and I pray my attitude will remain positive because I have a little girl to take care of and play with and her well-being is most important. 

So the next few weeks my posting may be scarce as we pack and move and unpack our lives into smaller quarters and set up shop across town.

    I’m sorry you are going through this. I am here if you need someone to listen (or have a glass of wine with); really, I can be a good listener too. We had fun at the (cess)pool today with you guys.

  3. I’m so sorry this is happening and you have every right to be sad about leaving your home. You may end up liking your condo more than you think (less cleaning time is always a plus) — it’ll just take some getting used to. If I were closer, I’d come help you pack!

  5. Thinking about you guys … hope you’re doing OK. You are a very strong person – and will find the good in what seems bad.

  6. I’m sorry this is happening, but it sounds like you are doing fairly well with keeping your spirits up. You are all in my prayers, and I just bet that before you know it, you will be back here. Good luck with all of the packing. Hope to “see” you soon!
