The Biggest News I've Had In Awhile


We have big news to share. The biggest news we've had in awhile. We have not told anyone, and even now, I am so nervous about sharing this news.

No, I am not pregnant. Not even a little bit.

But it's still really big news all the same.


We are moving!!!!! Into a house. With a yard. And three, yes, three bedrooms. In a good school district. I am beyond excited about it.

I haven't told anyone yet because I was so nervous about the deal falling through. In fact, I've pretty much been avoiding everyone in my life because I knew I'd spill the beans if I talked to anyone. I have a lot of calls to return and emails to write because I have been hiding out the past few weeks.

I just didn't want to talk about it because in the past whenever I've mentioned us possibly moving into a house, it has always not worked out (to put it mildly). The first time we were set to move, the house was in the middle of the worst wildfire in Los Angeles history. And the second time things went so far south we'd be sitting in Antarctica if the deal had gone through.

Looking back, I am glad that things worked out the way they did because I've fallen in love all over again. Yipeee! (Gosh, that makes me sound like I'm a contestant on The Bachelor).

We move in a little less than two weeks. Have we packed anything? Nope. Have we hired movers? Nope. Have we put our townhouse on the market yet? Nope.

I asked Mr. Mustard last night when we should think about packing our whole house to move, and he said, "Let's just throw our stuff in garbage bags the night before and rent a U-Haul." Awesome.

Last time we moved, Mr. Mustard cancelled the movers 48 hours before our move because he didn't think we needed them and didn't want to waste the money. I wish I'd taken a video of him the day of our move because if I had, I know we'd be hiring a whole fleet of movers this time.

So, that's the big news. Moving. Selling our townhouse. Big life changes. Just like that.

The timing could be A LOT better because the beginning of March was when we were set to go to Indiana to visit my family, and now that trip has to be postponed (and I have to make some very painful phone calls to my family in Indiana). I hope they will be happy for us, and will be okay with us coming to visit later this spring/early summer.

I am still in disbelief that we really are going to be moving. I'll believe it when I see it. I have to do about a gazillion things in the next few weeks, so I need to act as if it is really going to happen.

So, stay tuned. This great adventure is just beginning, and I am a little scared out of my gourd about everything we have to do in the next few weeks. Eeek!
