We’ve moved. Again. I know, that’s pretty much all I do.
We’ve been in our new house for a week and we have less then ten boxes to unpack. Since we move so often, I can’t stand living amongst boxes so it is just easier to jump in and unpack everything at once. We also had to hang curtains here because the house we rented is older (built in the 50s or 60s) and so it is cold! Sure it is in the 50s and the rest of the country has been in winter wonderland with snow and freezing (and far below freezing!) temps, but the 40s at night has gotten to us. So we unpacked and hung curtains and organized. We still have to organize the kitchen pantries (we have two!) and four boxes of kids toys (that is at least five years worth of toys so I’m sure we have some to give away). We had a lot of boxes in the garage in San Diego that we didn’t unpack, but here we decided to unpack them. I found some things I forgot about! And really, if I did without some stuff for six plus months I can probably do without for good.
I am desperate to sew and I am making it a priority to finish up in our living room/office/sewing desk area so I can take a break and sew.
I realized yesterday that I really like living here. We are about ten minutes from the schools, we live in a nice house with a great yard, the hubs is about fifteen minutes from work, and the entire area in general is just really nice. I look forward to exploring a bit more (I’ve already found a local quilt shop!) and traveling a little. I don’t think I felt that way in San Diego, and I don’t know why.
