In 65 days..
We will be closing on our new house in 65 days. In some ways that feels like a long time. It’s over two months away. A lot happens and changes in two months. Nora will be almost a year old (yikes!) and Brinley will be just over three and a half (OMG!). In 65 days the weather will be nicer (we hope) and the days will be longer. April seems lifetimes away right now with snow still on the ground and bitter cold in the air. But then again, 65 days is not very long at all when I think about all of the packing I have to do and cleaning and organizing and purging and… Aaahh! When I look at it that way two months does not seem like enough time.
My feelings are very bittersweet. I am SOO excited to be moving into a HOUSE. A single family, stand alone house where we won’t be sharing walls with anyone else. A home with a yard, with grass and a swing set. A home where the girls will each have their own bedroom. A home in a neighborhood with kids and friendly (I hope) neighbors. At the same time, I can’t help but feel a little bit sad about leaving our townhouse. This place hold so many memories for us. We moved here six years ago, back when it was just Scott and I. It was our first home together. We went through so many life changes while living here. We got married in July 2005, Brinley was born in September 2006, Scott started his new job in February 2007, and then Nora was born in May 2009. But the time has come where we have simply outgrown this space and we need to move on.
So, in 65 days we’ll sign all the papers and get the keys to our new house. It will be a new beginning for us all and I am so excited. Who wants to help me pack?
