I have been gone for a while due to the endless move to the new house. However, I can finally say the move is done, but I need to finish the touch up painting on the holes from hanging artwork that we filled inside the house. As well there are gardening items and a few plants that need to be removed to the new place.
I swear I have too much stuff. I thought I had been purging, but obviously I have not been serious about it enough. I can’t believe how much stuff I had packed into the previous home and I honestly don’t know how I got all of it either. Once everything is put together in the new home I am going to sit down and really consider what I have and why?
The new house is a complete mess, but slowly things are beginning to move. My roommate will be living in the upper section of the house. The stairs have 19 steps so many boxes and items have been on ground level for a while, but most have now been moved up. We both would to take several items up a day, but honestly it is exhausting. Actually, it demonstrates how out-of-shape the two of us are. I did, however, lose some weight from the move!
The garden took three and half days to get moved. It seems most plants were in shock for several days afterwards, but many have since bounced back. I have a variety of sized containers so watering is a constant and challenging situation. I cannot wait to get everything planted, but I am not sure when I would be able finish such a project. I did start a bed in front of the “cottage” last weekend and hope to start another this weekend.
I have to leave for Florida next Wednesday to visit with my mother and bring her up here for the Summer. The house is not how I would like it to be for her arrival, but there isn’t anything I can do about this. I am also financially tapped out so I am unable to get her room set up as I had hoped to, but I need to let go of this feeling that everything needs to be done right this minute. It is difficult.
I feel overwhelmed by the whole experience and I can say I haven’t felt much excitement about the fact I have purchased a home. Briefly, at night, I have moments and think to myself, “Wow, this place is mine,” but this is about it. I suppose in time once everything is put away and I am in the new garden of possibilities it will truly hit me.
