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. 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.

  1. Carrie I have been keeping you and your family close in my thoughts and sending you all the positive vibes I can. Although this is such a huge move and challenge can't help but think that you aren't where you should be right now you have undergone such a series of personal growth in five years your emotional physical life although feels so similar you are probably more ready for this adventure than you think. I'm in awe of you and I know you will continue to move forward. You and Cody both have been such positive role models to your children showing that your family through change and adversity, fatigue and simply only knowing today has never changed. You guys have been in training forever for this. You guys have each other and you know that is all you need...these things "stuff" you speak of they weigh more to you because deep down you know after this adventure you guys will all be changed and same stuff keeps a foundation when your foundation is in your heart soul which fits perfectly in your travel bags....good luck on your test , what's the kids thinking about the move...
