I already touched on it in an earlier post, but this weekend it was finally confirmed - we are going to be moving!! Sometime around late February or early March, we will load up our belongings and shuffle them across the county. The house is only about three years old, and it's a bit off the beaten path, though not in the boonies by any means. Yes, it's just a rental, but I don't care. It will be the first time I felt like something was even sort of ours.
Don't get me wrong - I am eternally grateful to the church for letting us stay in the parsonage, but it is time to move on. I want to let Braeden play outside without fear that he'll get kidnapped or hit by a car. I don't want to worry about leaky ceilings or drafty doors. I don't want to hesitate when someone knocks, not knowing the character of the visitor. Privacy will be a blessed relief.
We're slowly beginning the sorting/trashing/packing process. A huge yard sale will be necessary, at which time I'll post more details. (Let me know if you want a full/queen size bedroom suite!) Ten years is a long time to accumulate junk. My intent is to be brutal at the chopping block - hopefully I won't wimp out. Stuff just has to go! The new house is a good bit smaller, and frankly, I'm tired of looking at a lot of this stuff anyway!
I will most likely become rather scarce by springtime... in fact, it might appear that I have fallen off the face of the earth. ;)
