Crazy. Everything is crazy right now! I have put off blogging for too long, so I thought I would start from the beginning. There will be MANY posts this week...I have so much to blog about! So check back often and here we go...
After Ragnar we had 3 days to move out of our house. I really thought it would go smoother than it did...you always think that, right? Luckily we had TONS of help (esp. from our friend, Chase - thanks, man!) and we worked constantly. We have SO much stuff. Too much.
On the last day the new owners showed up with their family and asked if they could move a few things into the Master Bedroom. We had to make a garbage run anyway, so we went outside to get in the truck as they started to move stuff in. Seeing that...I broke. I was surprised that I had that reaction, but it was hard to see other people moving into that home. My home. Where we spent our first years, where my sons were born, where we had friends over and hosted so many parties. Cody held me as I cried...I'm sure the exhaustion was also to blame! I got control of myself and Cody and I stayed up until the wee hours finishing everything up. The boys were troopers, watching a show while Cody and I worked around them.
Here are some before and after shots of our vacant house...so weird to see it all empty.
After we were done, I walked through and said Goodbye to the house. I didn't cry, that time. I spent a few moments in each room...running my hand along the walls. We've been back a few times to grab some last minute things and it feels different each time we go. It's not ours anymore, and hopefully the new owners will love it as much as we did.
