T minus 7 days until the movers come and pack up our life and ship it to Hawaii! I only have about a million things to do before then.
Laundry Taxes Purge garage Purge file cabinet Purge closet Purge pantry Purge girls clothes Purge bathroom cabinets Pack valuables in original boxes so movers can't break anything too important Putty all picture holes in house Paint all putty marks from picture holes in house Return cable boxes and remotes to Suddenlink Pack our travel bags Prep car for transport Sell other car Scrub house when it's empty Find buyers or renters for the house Find agent to manage house if renting Find temporary house in Hawaii Get plane tickets to Hawaii Reserve rental car in Hawaii Say goodbye to our home of 3 years
It finally hit us last night that we are really moving to Hawaii! We couldn't be more thrilled to start this new adventure... but I sure will miss this home. I will miss the place both girls took their first steps, said their first "I love you"'s, and shed their first real tears. I will miss knowing my way around in the dark, parking both cars in the garage, my huge windows that allow endless hours of people watching to the street. I have sunk my blood, sweat and tears into this home, from the counters and tile I installed myself, to the decorations and pictures I hung with love. This has been our home for 3 wonderful years. Even though it is in tornado alley Oklahoma, it was still our home. Our 1st home. And I am quite sure I will cry when we leave.
I'm just hoping the beautiful beaches of Hawaii will heal these wounds quickly ;p
