So we survived.


Moving is too much work.

Really its ridiculous.

And then with children? Fuhgeddaboutit.

Next time. Hire movers. Then we stay put for a good long while.

I was nearing breaking down on several occassions over the past few days, but I held it together. For the most part.

And now. Now. My life is in bits and pieces. A box here. A suitcase there. And I am finding, myself again, transplanted. Blooming where I grow and all that, right?

Moving is one thing. To do the putting all your earthly possessions in a storage locker and moving in to your parents farm house?? This. This is crazy. Crazy good. Crazy hard. Letting go of "my stuff." My kitchen. My way of doing the dishes. My way of organizing the toys. My way of doing our day. You know?

I think I need to learn to let go though. Just like my Hawaii adventure, this is teaching me to live and let go of stuff like that. To not be too settled, which is so easy to do for a nesting mama. I have my little birdies in my little nest and I fluff it out daily and put in a new bit of wool or pretty fabric and they chirp and I spit chewed up bugs in their mouths. (Ha.)

And here. The run wild with cousins outside. They wake up and first thing go outside to the tire swing in the yard. In their pajamas. They get eggs from the chicken coop, fearlessly feeding them grain. They get really really dirty. Really. REALLY. Dirty. And run around with the dogs and cuddle aunties and eat hot dogs cooked over the firepit at 8pm. And its good. So good. And we will find our ebb and flow (we need to!)

But for now. I let go. Because sometimes you have to let go to be able to grab on to the good that is in front of you. You know?


  1. It sounds so wonderful! Change is good. Change is necessary. And it's getting you that much closer to the big picture, right?! We'd love to see you guys some time soon!

  2. 'every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end...' and that, is solid truth. :)

  3. Wow I can so relate- moving in with parents when you're grown up and have your own kids is quite the adventure; even as a blessing. ;) Happy growing and stretching to you! :)

  4. Good luck to you as you begin this new chapter.
