We moved last Saturday, thus the weak Takes last week and non-existant social media presence for several days. Remember how I wrote about being a minimalist a few weeks back?? HA! I have tons of crap – tons and tons of crap that I am still putting away and organizing. We moved several times in the first few years of our marriage, usually while I was pregnant or had a newborn, and while many things were easier this time around, our family is much larger and everyone has much more stuff than the last time we moved ten years ago. I know that everything will eventually find a new home in this home, but it’s hard for me to be patient.
In addition to the physical demands of moving, there’s all the paperwork. This week I tied up loose ends with our old school district (regarding the younger boys- homeschoolers have no requirements in NJ) in preparation for the transfer to a new district. All signs point to a smooth transition so fingers crossed there’s no awful surprises.
To give my back a rest, I finally took the uncomfortable step of walking through the house with my phone and making a video. Although I was reminded of why I don’t do more off-the-cuff videos (kids hate being in videos, the lighting is always bad, I never know what to say, etc.) I wanted to document these first few days in our new home. There’s the stress of moving, but there’s many more wonderful moments that Tony and I look at each other and smile because we’re finally living in the home we’ve dreamed about for years. (Sure, it’s not at the beach, but except for coastline, it meets every other criteria. Plus we can walk to a train station that will take us right to Atlantic City.)
A few notes for the video:
But enough with the type-edy type-edy, here’s a video for you to watch! Laugh at my awkward facial expressions! Marvel all all the vintage wallpaper! Fall in love with all that storage space! Then link up your own Quick Takes below! Be sure to include a link back to this post so your readers can enjoy them all!
