I'm so excited to move. Not the moving part itself, the packing and cleaning and going through all that again, but what the moving means. It means I'm going to be able to hang with my boo whenever I want. I can go over to his place to hang out, we can go to movies together, we can go to church together, play dominoes :) and really give our relationship a shot at moving to the next level. That is where the excitement comes from.
I'm sad to be leaving certain friends and coworkers behind, and my brother. I've enjoyed hanging out with him this last year. I don't know if we're any closer than we were, but I feel I know him better. I'll be sad to part ways with my sister-in-law and the kids. I've really enjoyed hanging out with them and getting to know her in particular. She's moving away next week and I'm sad about that. But I think we'll keep in much better contact now than any other time in the 10 or so years we've been in-laws.
But even with all the little bits of sad from leaving friends behind, I'm so ready to move forward with our next step. I really feel that this is the time and place for us to give it a real shot. There is real marriage potential here and I'm excited to be able to be near him and really see what we've got.
I'm going to MN to visit in a week from today and I know that is just going to be a tease! But I'll be back from MN on the 14th and then the moving truck will be dropped off Wed 8/23 and picked up Fri 8/25 so that there will be plenty of time for the truck to be transported and delivered by Fri 9/1. The moving comp doesn't work Sat or Sun and no holidays, so if it's not delivered by Fri 9/1 then it won't be delivered until Tues 9/5 and then I lose the weekend to unpack.
So anyway, I'm really just counting the days until I go to visit and then til I go for good.
