Moving Week

We've entered the final week living in our house, and it's not without drama!! Of course, what big move happens without any drama. Our air conditioning isn't working, which is not awesome when your about to settle on the sale. The service company are being turd burgers, and the whole thing has turned into a debacle (and an expensive one at that), and I haven't been able to get as much packing as I'd like done because last week was full of 38-41 degree heat, and there was no way I was motivated to even move, never mind pack in that kind of heat!

It's not ALL bad though. Due to the heat we spent three really fun mornings at the aquatic centers new water playground, and hung out with my Mum's group friends. Who I am going to miss living really close too!

Now we are getting into the nitty gritty of packing, and seeing we are moving Saturday, I'm feeling the pressure of getting it all done. I keep thinking 'when did we get so much stuff', it's amazing how much you accumulates after 5 years, and how much useless crap you tend to hold onto, well at least I do.

I just can't wait for a little more normalcy in our lives again, we are in that awkard half packed but still need to live in the house stage. Once we are out of here our new lifestyle will take a little adjusting too, because did I mention we are moving in with my parents!! I think it's going to be a good thing, my parents are awesome and they have graciously allowed for all of us, including Angus the dog, to disturb their peaceful, empty nester existence, and I know it will be soooo nice though to have my Mum around, especially when we have our baby girl! I may even get some rest during the day.


I think Angus is going to miss this house the most. He has a huge front yard where he can watch the world go by. He sits and guards all day, on alert, but in the most comfortable place he can find. 

I hope your week is peaceful, and lovely, and not stressful like ours, and please pray we get this silly air conditioner situation sorted quickly!!

  1. Love the pic of Ez and Angus! I hear ya with the ponderings over how one accumulates so much "junk" in just a few short years. When we moved out of our old place, I believe we had 8 contractor-size garbage bags full of trash. Ridiculous!

  2. Good luck with the air conditioner and with the move!

    And moving in with your mother sounds wonderful!

    I always think now, especially after living so far away from my parents for so long, I would love to move back in!

    Not sure how they would feel about it though!

  3. Moving is the pits. I hope the packing goes relatively smoothly for you. Some cooler weather would be great too.

  4. I hope the move goes well. It's hard to pack when you don't have to go right now. It will get done and you will move just hope that aircon starts working for you. I just don't know how you managed!

    Moving is hard work, and it is amazing how much stuff you accumulate once you have kids. Country Boy says he is never ever moving again, after our move to the country last year!
