Stacked Boxes and Finding Home

Mommy Miracles Guest Posts Boxes multiplied each night, stacked in corners and dragged across the floor when I packed one too many pots into another kitchen box. Clothes shifted between three piles: storage, packed for my parents’, and going to charity. A single toy box was supposed to house the toys the kids could take with them to Grandma and Grandpa’s, where we’ll be staying in the period between closing on our used-to-be-ours home and our new-to-us house.

We’re not the only family moving this summer, and my friend Laura is hosting a “Writing Home” series about the serious and not-so-serious sides of moving. Join me there this morning while I talk about being between places, and bring some coffee — I’m not sure what I did with mine.

If you’re visiting from Mommy Miracles, thank you and welcome! I hope you stay for a while and visit some of my favorite posts.

I am kind of obsessed with moving – (in, out, open houses, escrow – okay, maybe not that part) and am excited (but not in a creepy way probably) to read about your move.

It’s an emotional thing, no?
Wishing you an easy transition.

(HA! Not possible with two kids, I know. But still. I wish it for you.)

Julie! Hi!

It’s exciting and crazy and exciting. Each time I think, “We’re through the stressful part!” I realize I’m wrong. Which is so similar to parenting when you think about it 🙂
