It's Been One Week Since You Looked At Me...

It's been a week since my last post...and I don't think I even realized it.

I spend quite a few days of the last week moving homes...it was madness...and completely exhausting...but my new place feels just that: new. And so clean that it's almost like a hotel.

Monday: packing the house, moving refrigerators (yep, plural), mopping floors, cleaning the bathroom (with a one of my small group girls)

Tuesday: rented, picked-up and packed a U-Haul with the contents of my entire house (with the same HS student and a great friend)...drove and parked the U-Haul and waited for Wednesday to come.

Wednesday:
picked up my new keys, dropped off my old keys (and grabbed a left-behind TV), unloaded the U-Haul (with the help of two incredible dudes), returned the U-Haul, picked up a minivan for loading and moving all of Bre's furniture, then unpacked the kitchen and DVDs, set-up two beds, two TVs with DVD players and most of the living room.

Thursday: unpacked most of my closet, moved a bookshelf or two, went to work and college group...Bre went grocery shopping (thankfully!)

Saturday/Sunday/Monday: slowly, little-by-little unpacking the rest of the junk, moving furniture over and over again to maximize our space, inviting friends over to see the place

This morning, a week later, it still feels like a hotel...but at least it feels like a home, too.
