- Wedding: February 2013
Following up on this thread from last week: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/in-need-of-the-bees-support-cross-country-move-long#axzz2tsNPnyAR
Moving is hard, y’all.
I don’t think I have ever been so stressed out in my life. Planning a wedding was a cakewalk compared to moving from a three bedroom house in San Antonio to a tiny 1/1 apartment in Seattle. It hasn’t even been a full week since DH got the job offer and already I have experienced:
A total lack of control
Too many people touching my stuff and running around my house
Parents and In-laws with the best of intentions (you know how that turns out sometimes)
A panic attack
Extremely volitle and ever-changing plans and schedules
Forgetting to do my school work on time, asking for an extension, and still not finishing it on time
Blind apartment hunting
…And so much more. Things are calming down as much as they can for now, but it looks like we are driving up next week to move into our tiny apt. on the 1st. DH starts on the 3rd. I’ll stay for a few days, then I’ll be flying back to SA for a week to wrap things up at home and work with a bow.
Of course, with the bad, comes the good. DH and I have our moments, but for the most part we work like a strong team. I am so thankful for the love and support from our friends and family, even when they drive me a little nuts. I love the little apt. we found, the manager I’ve been working with is great, and the neighborhood sounds wonderful.
I’m excited to start this journey with DH.
Thank you bees for listening to me in the previous post, for listening now, and for offering advice and support. Thanks Seattle bees for your help with the city and places to live. Can’t wait to schedule a meet-up sometime!
This Texas girl has only seen three other states, but next week I’ll be driving through a ton more! I’ll keep y’all posted as we continue on this journey.
