We’ve been moved into this townhouse for one week and one day today. The first few days were rough as hell.
I was exhausted from the move. I had forgotten to take time off of work because I was so busy wedding planning, and trying to coordinate things for the move. We ended up less unpacked than I had liked to be. The house seemed strange, and not like home. It was gorgeous, and intriguing, and inviting, but also new. Unfamiliar.
I just didn’t feel like myself. And all my coworkers felt the need to tell me how tired I looked, and that really ground my gears.
We moved August 15th, and I didn’t truly start feeling better until this past Wednesday when my coworkers and I all spent the day at Six Flags for free! We even got a free lunch, and we all got to bring a guest. I brought my wife-to-be, of course, and we hung around my main crew of therapists, being silly and riding roller coasters all day and all night.
The rest of the week went quickly uphill from there. This townhouse started to feel more like a home. Our cat seemed better adjusted and more comfortable here, and we did as well. It’s never taken me time before to adjust to new living quarters.
Our friend Elliot came over last night and we all went out for Indian food. He loved the townhouse, and we just had a blast all night.
I bought a LifeProof case for my iPhone six plus, for the purpose of added protection on our honeymoon in Santorini! Also because the first two levels of this townhouse are hardwood, and my partner’s phone screen smashed a few nights after we moved in! My life is occupying bigger spaces and traveling to further distances, so my phone needs a better helmet. Life is taking off!
What’s coming up in the next eight weeks: Our bridal shower, our bachlorette party, the Mehndi ceremony my family is throwing us, our wedding night, and our nine night honeymoon in Santorini, Greece!
And we’ve only been in this townhouse a week! We’re both glad that all the work of the move is over.
We’re completely unpacked as of this weekend, and looking forward to all the craziness the next eight weeks has to offer us.
