We're Moving!

Today is the first day we can start moving in to our new house! We are moving to be closer to Mr. Eight's work. Right now he drives anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and it stinks! We moved to this particular spot because it was in the middle of his work and University of Hawaii, where I was going to school at the time. Well, I graduated last spring! So now there's no good excuse (aside from the amazing friends and neighbors) to stay.

I'm really nervous about how this will go down. I'm not sure how my kids will handle it (ok, Miss M is who I am worried about, Mr. C will just immediately look for the first thing he can climb on and/or destroy), it will be a longer drive to friends and visits will have to be planned, not sporadic like they normally are. Tomorrow is also her last day at the preschool/moms day out program I've been taking her to for 2 months. I hadn't known we'd been moving when she started or I would have waited. I'll most likely take her to the CDC up where we are moving to, but it won't be regular, just drop in care, and it won't be the same.

I get really sentimental about places too. This is where I was pregnant with Mr. C! This is only the second place we've lived together as a family, we've only PCSed once. My neighbors here are really great and I have a lot of memories here.

BUT I need to suck it up because this new house we're going to is AWESOME! It's so much nicer than where we live now. The appliances are brand new, there's a garage, the kitchen layout is much nicer, the amount of storage space (not including the garage) is ten times more than what we have now. I know we're going to be a lot happier there with the location and the quality of the house. I mean, the yard even has a fence!! Score!

Ain't she a beaut?? Look at that built in microwave! And the island!

WELL, I'm going to be pretty busy this week with the move. Our final out from this place is next Monday. In the meantime I'll be posting as much as I can and I'll share more pictures of our new house once we get unpacked! Wish me luck! :D


  1. Your house looks and sounds wonderful. Congratulations.

  2. I wish I had that much space in my kitchen!
