It's starting to hit

May 29th, 2015 at 04:59 pm

The reality of our move I think is starting to hit all of us. Until now I feel like we've been just worrying and thinking and focusing on everything else. Now we are getting down to the wire and the focus is on us. Not the house, not school, not plans, but us.

How are getting where we are going? Are we buying a used minivan or renting one ($1500)? What route are we taking?

For my DH he's counting down the days. He can't take his job anymore and dreads all the days. For me it's the worry about when will we actually move.

But today my DK1 said she's sad about moving. That it's hit that we're not just leaving and going on vacation to come back. We are leaving the area.

I felt it last weekend weirdly as I drove home from Costco and shopping. I felt sad that we were leaving behind our routine, our friends, our neighbors. I adore our neighbors.

They came over for cake last night and had a moment of sadness as we realized it was the last weeknight birthday celebration. It's not always been easy but sharing a wall with people for 9 years changes you. You know them well. And they are moving on as well to a new house, new friends, new life.

It was bittersweet. I believe that I'll stay in touch with many of the friends i've made here. With social media it's easier than ever. But the idea that we are moving on and so far makes it sad.

But the excitement of the new challenges ahead and the journey there are helping. But for now I'll focus on getting the journey started.

After all we can't change the past but we can alter our futures.

    I move from Minnesota to Montana on Monday. This plan has been in the works since last April (2014) but it seems like I've always been able to say "I don't have to worry yet, it's not until next Spring!" Well now "next Spring" is here and it's a little scary.

    I've always lived in MN and my parents have never been more than 15 miles away. I'm only 27 and have never been a risk taker, so this new adventure is a little nerve-wracking!

    Good luck to you!

    It's good to see you are making time to see your friends - I hear so many stories of people moving who get so caught up in moving that they don't bother to socialise with the friends they are leaving behind because they figure they'll see them when they move. The truth is you see them, but it becomes so much harder and it's never the same. So make time no matter how busy you are and no matter how small the block of time is. You'll be happy you did.
