We did it. We drove five hundred million miles and are in this new place I think we’ll be calling home.
It’s getting hard to feel like we will ever be settled. Lance did a great job picking out the house. It will… work… for now. Anything was going to be an adjustment after living in a fantasy land in a gigantic home on it’s own acre of land. In this house, well, I could jump from my rooftop to the neighbor’s without much effort. I might try it.
I will write about our whole trip. The fun we had. Add pictures and all of that stuff. For now though, I’m just checking in. I’m a crazy mix of emotions. Mostly just tired. We stopped by our old Port Orchard neighborhood yesterday and saw most of our neighbors. That was SO HARD. I didn’t realize how much it was going to suck to not go HOME to our house, our friends, etc. It’s like starting all over again. Casey cried and said, “It’s just like the good ol’ days!” And then we all cried.
For now, I have a ton of boxes that need to be unpacked and nowhere to put anything because we gave away most of our furniture before we moved. We cleaned out part of our storage shed here that held all of the stuff we didn’t want to take us on our original trip to DC. Holy hell I kept some stupid stuff. Seriously. Boxes and boxes of ugly dumb stuff I will eventually just hide in our crawl space here…which actually is HUGE. That’s exciting to me. A veritable graveyard of projects that I will never finish. Like a warped time capsule museum type thing. I will name it “ADHD.”
I still have no cat.
I miss you guys.
That is all.
