If you saw my blog post the other day, you read that my family and I are moving to south Texas by the end of the month. The last time we moved was three years ago, but apparently I’d forgotten how much work goes into the whole ordeal.
On Friday, we rented a small U-Haul trailer to take the first round of boxes and other items to our new house. We knew what would normally take us 3.5 hours to drive would take longer now that we were pulling a loaded trailer. What we didn’t take into account was the crazy wind Texas threw our way. Seriously, the whole drive down was like fighting against an ocean current. In the end it took us just shy of 5.5 hours to get to our destination. Needless to say, we were all exhausted and glad to get out of the car.
We spent the night in our new house. While the kids seemed to sleep well, my husband and I tossed and turned on our cots. Between the weird new house sounds, the sprinkler system coming on just outside our window at 2 a.m. (I didn’t know we had a sprinkler system lol), and thunderstorms half the night, it was nearly impossible to sleep.
Saturday morning, we took care of some things in our new house and town before heading back again. Unfortunately, the wind was still going strong making it an exhausting trip. Hopefully, when we take another trailer later this week, the wind will have eased up or disappeared. Thankfully, two weeks from today, all of our stuff should be moved, and we’ll be unpacking and getting settled. I can’t wait! Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to resting up a little today.
I hope you all find Sunday to be a restful start to this new week.
