We are just over a week into our new home. I’m here by myself right now and it is quiet so I’m pausing to think back over the past week.
First, oh holy crap! What a whirlwind. We had three days to set up bedrooms, bathrooms and the start of our kitchen. Over the past week it has been unpack, clean, put away, clean and continuous loads of laundry.
By Sunday there was a nagging feeling to cook a real meal – not meal prep frozen dinner and not a lunch meat sandwich. It is so nice to cook a real meal in my own home after two months of back and forth on the road!
The first weekend we made a several hundred dollar trip to the big box home improvement store and a several hundred dollar trip to the grocery store. It takes a lot of resources to get back up and running as an established household. Enough of that nonsense.
This week was mostly work outside after work followed by another weekend of unpacking and cleaning.
Lastly, it’s nice to go home after work and stay home. I am not missing the commute. I also get to see my husband every day. That is highly unusual in our world and a welcomed change.
Living and loving life!
