The Countdown


This is the countdown we’ve had on our fridge for a while. It started at 40-something… Today it says “7”… This time next week we will have a loaded trailer with all our belongings and be starting our 650 mile trek to our new home and the next chapter of our life. It’s bittersweet really.

Although most moments of the last several weeks it hasn’t quite seemed real and I guess it may not for a while. It’s been more of moving through the motions, doing the next thing, being mostly in the moment… which I’m actually thankful for. There are friends & family I’ve already said “goodbye” to and others I haven’t yet. The “goodbye’s” are of course the hardest part of all of this. The friends that I’ve had a “history” with that I’d have loved to see my kids “grow up” with and those that I knew before even having kids. It’s just plain hard to say goodbye, although many of the goodbye’s are really just “see you later’s” it doesn’t necessarily make it any easier.

So, for now, I’ll just continue to take it day by day… allowing myself to shed a tear when necessary, get excited when I want to, and then there are moments of just getting down to business to get things ready. Through it all, I’m doing my best to relish in and just enjoy each moment of this adventure!
