This week I am making my fourth move in four years. I think this occasion provides plenty of material for the 31 days project. It may not provide much time, but I need some sort of catalyst to get me writing regularly again. And I really want to remember what is always such a blur in hind-sight: the crazy, fun, messy, hard process of making a house a home.
I’ve learned a lot during this process of moving (this is my 8th move total). I’ve learned things ranging from how to purge, pack, then pick a house to how to move the kids along as smoothly as possible when their lives are turned upside down. I’m getting ready to learn how to do a significant down size – losing 1000 square feet of living space and going from the luxury storage of a massive basement and three car garage to no basement and a one car garage. I’m not complaining. I truly love our new home. I’m just saying it’s going to be a challenge, but one that I’m actually excited about (right now while it’s still theoretical 😉 ).
So exactly one week from today, I will move my stuff to a new (to us) house in New Jersey. I’m not sure how much sense these posts will make because I am already mush-brained and tired (we packed and moved the stuff from the house in Akron Wednesday, Thursday, and came home yesterday), but I’m going to make an attempt anyway.
I’d love if you joined me. You may even be able to help me. I’ll try to post pictures and ask for help especially with my new space/storage challenge. If you have any ideas, please comment!
Okay, gotta go. I’m going to gather paint swatches for my new diggs. Any suggestions?
