Moving Day

For the last two years I've been hoping to move.

I knew it was a bad sign when we were buying the house we're in now, because I was already having buyer's remorse when we were in escrow. I couldn't back out of the deal, because I had written a big earnest money check and I didn't really hate the place. I probably should have gone with my gut feeling, but we closed and only a few months after moving in, I was already ready to move out.

The house itself is great, but the location was not my favorite and in 2 years, I think we've really only used the downstairs for a handful of parties and some video gaming. It's too much house for us, in the wrong place. Moving was always something I hoped to do and last year we started seriously looking for not just our next home, but one we could stay in for a long time.

Well, we finally found the place and now we're packing. I spent all weekend working on the Star Wars Room (discussed in my Star Wars Blog) and pressure washing both the driveway, the backyard walkway and patio. That's all I've done so far and we're moving in 2 weeks.

I still have to pack the entire downstairs, my office, plus the rest of our mutual stuff. Between then and now we also have to clean, paint, sell excess stuff and get our current house ready for a sale. I don't think I'm going to have a lot of time to do this stuff, but I'll make time somehow.

Just wanted to document this time, because I'm feeling overly stressed and I'm going to love to look back on this entry 3 months from now when everything is hopefully going much better.
