Just this week I’ve been hit with need to purge our bedroom and start packing up our basement. Each day I wake up and have this incredible need to sort through our wardrobe, a pile for Goodwill and a keep pile. I’m ready to reclaim our bedroom, mainly our dressers and closet. How do we manage to always have articles of clothing lying around? No matter how hard I try there is always a laundry basket filled with clean clothes that seemingly has no place to go. This is a dumb problem, people. It’s time to do something about it. Sort and donate and then donate some more.
You may have caught the pack up our basement bit too. I’ll do a full explanation soon but for now here’s the quick update. We plan on moving about an hour away to be closer to Brent’s work. When my husband got this new job we were relieved and excited, it has been such a good change for us both financially and for his well-being as a human. However it takes just over an hour to get to work and then back again, he’s averaging around 700 miles a week. So we planned to move closer to his office and then boom- positive pregnancy test.
We have been blessed with an amazing doctors and nurses so the idea of packing up and moving in the middle of my pregnancy just didn’t feel right. We’ll stay planted here in our little town until our fella joins our family in late December. Our plan is to move in February.
The need to have our house in a more prepared state both for new baby and big move is becoming increasingly more needed. From now until October we have weekend plans with friends, October holds a few family gatherings and the official ramp up of the holiday season. November of course is completely dedicated to Thanksgiving, well for me any way. Our plan of action is to have our entire basement (and a few other household belongings that won’t be needed) boxed up and loaded into our storage unit in the city by November.
So is it nesting or just a good case of the lets-get-stuff-done-time-is-ticking-away. I’m not sure but I’ll take whatever extra motivation you have hanging around your house! Maybe this will keep me accountable, I’ll keep you posted!
