Well, hello there!
You know it’s been a while since you blogged when you can’t remember what you last talked about. [grin]
Our girls are moved, safe and sound and appear to be having the time of their lives. Someone asked me if they have commented on the levels of homework or class work and no, they haven’t. I think the Advanced Placement classes they took last year prepared them well for hard classes and lots of homework; either that or it’s too early to tell.
Instead I hear stories about things like the kid who read ever. single. label. on his clothing while sorting in the washers at the dorm laundromat and how fun it is to get together with friends on the weekends. I’m getting good at using SnapChat too. lol
|Books are on the shelves now, just need to hang wall decor. Woot!|
Meanwhile we have also moved and are done with that stressful mess, well…done cleaning the old place. I’m about 75% settled in the new one. Yeah, if I can help it I like to move in and make a place home asap.
In case you care why it was stressful (I don’t think I’ve ever been as stressed in a move as I was this time.) An apartment became available early, so we could move by the end of August (versus by September 15th), but it put us in a stressful state trying to pack and move and clean all in about 10 days, with my husband not having a weekend day off.
I’d say we shouldn’t have done that, but when we got our full deposit back and we’ve saved on extra rent from an overlap that would’ve occurred this month… I guess it was worth it.
|I was walking so fast my camera was shaky. Ha!|
Now that the move (or moves..) is (are) done I feel settled and more focused on my health. We only moved 5 minutes from our old house, which thankfully still leaves me close to my gym. Yay! So, I’ve been back there and today I went for a walk at a park down the street from my house. I ran into many walkers and a runner or two. It’s still very warm and humid here in the mornings, but being outside is so refreshing.
I’ll leave you with this quote that was on the display during my Weight Watchers meeting this week. We were to look over our summer and see what we could change or would do the same.
It gave me some things to think about and hopefully I’ll share them along the way, until then..I’m doing better. I’m alive and now I need to fold laundry and maybe hang up some wall decor. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
yay for getting the move done. One move we did, Mac (my husband) moved in May while I stayed the summer in another state with the kids who had summer jobs. 3 months and Mac lived with the bare minimum because unpacking is part of my “nesting”. hahaha. He didn't really seem to care … he's used to my crazy. 🙂
