Josh left for Florida this morning. I was in a straight up panic as I worked ALL DAY to clean out this house. Tomorrow Jason is coming to take pictures/video of this place and to put it up for sale which means people will want to come by and see it! I am freaking out. I worked all morning, picked up Annie from preschool, went to Costco, fed Annie lunch. Luckily, Jocelyn wanted Annie to play so I ran two miles on the treadmill and then got back to work. Then I picked up the kids from school and continued to work. I cleaned all the baseboards, walls, and corners, while doing laundry in between.
Brianna came over to play with Jayda and Emmy.
Annie brought Jocelyn over to play at our house.
Ethan and Drake played all afternoon and Ashton played football with his pals.
For FHE, all the kids helped me move all those boxes over to the new house. I was very proud of myself because Ash asked if I would play catch with him as I was about to load up the car. I totally stopped what I was doing and he and I played football until it was too dark to play anymore. Then he and I took the last load over to the house. The lights were ON!!!! It was INCREDIBLE!!!! SO GORGEOUS!!!!
With our current house completely simplified and mostly empty, it feels much, MUCH better. It seems almost big enough again. As I tucked in the boys, I felt super sad about leaving our tiny house, where we are all jammed together all the time. I am really nervous with all the space we will have.
