Moving Day is getting closer....

06 January 2013
We have been planning and packing since the 29th of December in anticipation of the big moving day, and while I am excited about the move, I think it has finally really hit me that after 6 years in this apartment, there will be no more memories made here. For the first time in 7 years I will be more than a 3 minute walk from my mother. I know that this move is a good thing for all of us, but this is the only home that Sassy has ever known, this is where all of our memories, good and bad have been made. These walls have seen so much, how do you just walk away from that? This is the place we were living when we finally tied the knot, how can I let those memories go?

How does one adjust to have her best friend go from being right next door to all the way across town? I'm uprooting not only me, but the kids too. We don't know anyone in the new neighborhood, and the new house is so far from all of their friends. I am just glad that they can at least finish out the school year in their school, and I will do everything I can to keep them in the district they are in now.

As I said, I am excited about the move, and I know that even though we don't know anyone, we will find friends for me and the kids; but I can't help but wonder how long my adjustment period will be. I've become so used to my mom being right down the parking lot, how am I supposed to deal with her being so far away? How do I adjust to not having my support system within arms reach? Yes, I'm freaking out, I've spent most of the day in tears, worrying about every little thing; I just pray that I am strong enough to get through this without too much stress.

Monday is looming, and I know that I can't stop time and keep everything just as it is, no matter how much I want to. Almost everything but the tvs, beds and a few dishes are already packed and at the new house, do you think it's too late to back out and ask for a do over?
