The last 2 weeks have been a complete and utter BLUR! It can only be described by me saying “what the heck just happened?”
Last 2 weeks recap!
Football – Carolina home game versus South Alabama – amazing! The seats were so high, I thought I would need Xanax, but ya know – those 2 beers I had at 9am worked just fine! The kids had such a great time playing with my friends kids, and our grad students!
Moving – let me just say, my coworker Alli is a freaking rockstar. She showed up early, and worked her butt off helping me move all the big furniture. We did so much with just ourselves, she amazed me! She even kept my kids packing & occupied so I could go to court for my speeding ticket. Yes, I got a ticket back in October driving Patricks truck. Lucky for me, showing up to court and being sweet got my ticket reduced down to $81, the minimum it could go (it was $186). Below is Alli and I after we got the sleeper sofa in the truck…and then Alli playing with Natalee’s barbie & horse doing a reenactment of Taylor Swift’s latest music video.
Thanksgiving weekend – a little quieter than last year, since we didn’t get up to Walhalla until late on Thursday. We had Thanksgiving dinner on Friday with our little family, and of course had breakfast with Patrick’s best friend too. A little Black friday shopping (that evening, not in the morning crazy). Saturday – more football (meh – we won’t discuss that game) and got to see some friends from Virginia!
First week of December – finished the move out/clean up and got out of the old house. More unpacking, attempting to cook my first meal in my new house (while still surrounded by boxes and crap!). Lots of purging. This move is as much about physically moving, as it is about moving on. I have purged so much stuff we no longer need. Clothes that don’t fit the kids anymore – blessed a few families with clothes. My wedding bouquet – yeah, don’t need it – blessed a bride having a Christmas wedding with it. Even packed up a box full of items that belong to my ex-husband and he can pick it up.
First weekend of December - Mama & Daddy come to visit, Katie’s school play, unpacking/cleaning and random trips to Greenville. This week is a little light at work. Doing inventory with my “girls”, and the December birthday lunch (we are having chili – yum!).
