PACKING HAS COMMENCED! Wahoo!
I think we're actually going to be in our new house by Friday. How crazy is that!? This is the last Saturday night in my house and although I'm stupidly excited about moving, It's also kind of sad too. I feel like when we moved here my marriage was a little shakey and I didn't know who I was anymore. Dean was constantly pissed off with me because I was a stay at home mum and he wanted me to pay half the bills. I just needed a purpose beyond being a wife and mother, I think. I needed to speak to people outside my little family and feel like ME again. As soon as I was working I swear my marriage felt instantly better. Dean felt like I was contributing and I felt like an actual person and it's just been good since then.
Beth took her first steps here and they both started school here, have shared a room and a bunk bed together.
Its been a good home for us and I'll be sad to leave it behind. But I can't wait for them to have their own rooms now and let them have the freedom to express their own personalities in their own way, in their own space. I can't wait for us all to make a million new memories.
The packing part though? Yeah that's crap.
