The end of the great purge!

As I sit here in our empty house, following a successful moving sale, I find myself exhausted, excited, anxious, a little nervous and scared, but mostly ready for this next chapter in our lives.

We have had some great times here in this place we’ve called home together for the last almost six years.  This house has seen our smiles, tears, blessings and trials, but nothing like the emotional roller coaster ride of the last year.  I will delve deeper into this in later posts.

We just finished with our moving sale and we were more than pleased with the amount of stuff family, friends, neighbors and strangers left with.  I was asked many times over the last couple of days how I feel about seeing all of our things leaving.  And to tell you the truth, it feels so freeing.  It’s almost as though the house full of stuff was a huge weight on my shoulders and now I can stand a little taller.  Not that trying to load up all of our belongings into an RV of just over 400 square feet is not stressful.  And then there’s the whole trying to get a nine month old and a two and a half year old to co-habitat in one room…that’s a good time!

We have officially set a “launch date”……December 2nd is when we will be wandering south…toward Texas!
