It’s Moving Day! I can’t believe it’s actually here. I have to say, it still hasn’t sunk in that I’ll be in a different state by tomorrow. I feel like I’ll still be waking up to go to work. In just a few hours we will be on our way.
While I’ll be closer to my parents, I am leaving the rest of my family and friends behind. I’ll even miss my coworkers. The nice thing is that one of them is getting married in July, and my mom and I are planning to fly up and attend together. I’ll be able to visit everyone then. After that, who knows!
I have so much to be grateful for this week. It’s been a long and short week all in one, with all the packing we did and the counting down. I still feel like it’s Tuesday!
I am grateful that we got to see our friends one last time. We also went to a fun trivia night at a bar not too far from us. Each table got a free pizza, there wasn’t even a cover charge! That’s hard to find, at least here. I thought that was really awesome.
R was going out to eat with his coworkers Thursday night, so I told my grandma I would stop by and have dinner with her and my parents. Turns out, they invited the rest of the family over, so I got to say good bye. My grandma made the infamous baked ziti I love, which was nice.
It’s sadly not often that I find myself being grateful for coworkers, but they made it easy yesterday. One of them organized getting a cake and had everyone write on a card. I wasn’t expecting that at all! Truth be told, I felt a little worse for leaving them all. Not that I’m amazing or anything, but one person does make a difference in the office. I was really touched that they were able to be happy for me when it would have been easy to feel resentful.
I still can’t say how grateful I am for my parents. Even my grandma was over here today trying to help as much as possible. This would have taken a lot longer without them helping. I was at work and by the time I came home the truck had been loaded. On Wednesday my mom had packed at least half the apartment!
I am also grateful for R, because he did a lot during these two weeks. While I was busy researching apartments and making plans, he was packing and cleaning up the apartment. He’s also been busy trying to keep me calm! It’s nice to have a significant other that balances you out.
In any case, I hope I have a lot to be grateful for after the move. At this point my main concerns are having the cats make it down there okay, having the storage unit fit everything we have, and having no car issues on the way.
I will try my best to be back on Monday with an update for all of you! Blogging on my iPad isn’t ideal, but since my computer will be out of commission, it will have to do.
Have a great weekend everyone!
