Home Stretch

T minus 4 days till we take possession of our cottage. It still doesn’t seen real, like it’s happening to someone else and we just keep telling everyone it’s us in hopes no one will notice. Just nod and smile, boys.  Nod and smile. 

To say the last 6 months have been a whirl wind would be a serious understatement. We’ve gone from owning a (what I now think to be a big) house, to a trailer, to a small cottage, all the while, very focused on the game plan- keep life small and simple. Enjoy every minute. Buying another house wasn’t even in the foreseeable future. But when you hop on MLS just to see what’s out there, you’re asking for trouble. 

Trouble has found us. 

So much has to be done before this thursday I’m not really sure how it’s all going to get done. The silver lining- in a week it won’t matter how nervous I am now. How worried I am we’ll forget something. The packing, unpacking. In a week we’ll be all settled in, enjoying our new space, and in the throes of christmas.  

Wait, whose idea was it to move during christmas?

Mine, it was mine. I have the best timing.
