No one, nor any documents can truly prepare you for a move like this. Not only am I going through a rollercoaster of emotions, but the madness of deciding what to store, what to sell, what to donate, and what to bring is an insanely difficult process.
Yes, it is just "stuff." But, this "stuff" makes us feel like we have a home, especially with the amount of times we have and will continue to move.
This weekend Cody spent his time sorting through the outdoor storage sheds. The garbage can is full and the house is full of items to sell and donate. We have one shed organized with items we are taking with us, and the other with items we are storing for two years.
We can't pack much of anything, because the Army has to, in order for it to be covered by their insurance. So what we can and can't do is limited. My mind does not shut off with things to accomplish and it's just getting closer and closer which makes it even more overwhelming.
AND....to add into the mix of all this madness, I signed up to take my personal training course and certification. So, on top of all the moving madness, I've also created a new task list (meeting with counselor, paperwork, accounts, etc)...and the course starts next month, but I have till August to get it completed. What was I THINKING?!
We are here....underneath a pile of "stuff" trying to figure out this new adventure.
