Moving Day

Well it is finally here, and I'm feeling such a mix of emotions.  It wasn't an easy decision.  There were both pros and cons.  But we would like to think the pros outweigh the cons.  Sometimes chances get given to us and this was one of those opportunities.

Yeah there were major downsides to living where we do now, but there were a few great perks like having a newly renovated house, new paints, and new flooring.  It felt like a new house inside because it had never really been lived in, in it's new state.  But today is a good example of why we need to move the basement is majorly flooded and will stay like that until it drys.

The new place is a super cute cottage, but it has been lived in before and not as newly renovated or painted as the old one.  But there are quite a few perks such as it's a house (no other noisy residents to have to listen to), own backyard, driveway, and two bathrooms.  Plus, it is much closer to my amazing niece!

But I find change of any kind hard.  I'm one of those people who after awhile gets attached to places, people, and certain routines.  So when those things change it often takes me a little to adjust.  Hence that is where feeling the mixed emotions come in.

Today I have a rather long day ahead of me. I'm going to clean every square inch of the house, meet with the cable guy, and do those little pre move in things.  Not exactly psyched about the hour drive ahead of me because Philly has been under major flooding due to tropical storm Nicole.  It has been raining since yesterday morning and we are talking heavy, heavy rain.  So it has made for some messy roadways and major flooding.

Tomorrow is officially the big move day.  My family...parents, sister and brother in law will all be coming to help.  I'm very grateful to have such a loving, supportive family, who is always ready to lend a hand.  Without them I don't know what I would do. 

So here is a preview of our little cottage house.
