Much like the first snowfall, our first fall season in Colorado has me giddy. I’m making lots of soup, baking pumpkin treats, and turning the fireplace on almost nightly. Boots, mittens and scarves are actually necessities instead of accessories I don to make me feel like it’s fall, even though I am sweating up a storm in my get-up.
Well I guess it’s time to return to normal life. After a long week of moving out, traveling, and moving in, we are finally settling in and life is gaining back some sense of normalcy. Yesterday was the first time in a couple of weeks that I washed and folded laundry and it almost felt foreign to me (not that I’m complaining about two weeks without laundry).
It’s been awfully quiet here this week, but rest assured – I am still alive.
It’s been a whirlwind of a weekend/week on our journey to move to Colorado (if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen pictoral evidence that I’m still alive – at least there’s always time for posting photos!).
Saturday= packing, going away party
Sunday= packing up trailer, moving into mom & dad’s house
Monday= cleaning rental, finishing packing trailer, trailer picked up, spa and dinner with girlfriends
Tuesday= finish cleaning rental, catch up on some work, stop to say goodbye to close friends, dinner with parents-in-law
Wednesday= husband leaves for long solo drive to CO (he has already arrived safely), pick up dad at airport who is returning from vacation, more work catch up
So much is happening in my head right… so I thought, hey, why not write about it? Even though I just had a quick Type-A moment and thought, wait! “Candid Coffee Talks” are only supposed to post on Mondays! And then I said, shut up, it’s your blog and you can do what you want. Yes, I had that whole conversation in my head.
So here we go… It’s almost time for the big move. One week from today, I will be hopping on a plane in California with my two youngins to meet my husband (who is driving) in Colorado – our new home state.
You may remember how a few weeks back I mentioned my trip to Denver, CO and how we would soon be moving there.
Well, now it’s official. We’ve found a place, signed the paperwork and are set to move in around August 1. This isn’t just moving down the street; this is a big, serious move two states away with all of our belongings and two kids under the age of 4. Yikes.
I have totally neglected the blog this week. Truth be told, I am out-of-my-mind busy and I haven’t had a spare moment. In fact, I shouldn’t be taking the time to write this now… I should be finishing up some work, packing and making lunch.
But I’m feeling sorry for my little blog. So here I sit, writing.
