I am so excited to be back! The Boy starts his summer camp today and is so excited — it is absolutely adorable (if pre-teens can be adorable). He picked out what he was going to wear a couple of days ago, even in the midst of the chaos of unpacked boxes here at the new house. I told him this morning that he needed to have his backpack today and he would need to clean it out, so he was on it within seconds!
The moving process itself was not nearly as stressful as it could have been — it really helps to have a fiance who used to have a moving business. Dealing with the landlord is still giving me a headache, but the end is in sight. I’m sure I’ll post more on that whole topic later.
Right now, I am in the midst of a brand new headache — trying to get setup with my new address. I’m stuck in a never-ending cycle between needing a driver’s license, and needing a social security card, and another form of ID… Except that I just moved here — AND I’m getting married! Of course they couldn’t make it too easy, or everyone would move here – right?
Finally, we’re getting details nailed down for the wedding which is NEXT FRIDAY – Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. The Man is getting himself used to calling me his wife (introducing me to neighbors and such), and it’s still such a foreign word. But I like it. We ordered our rings, changed our venue last minute (from one free city park gazebo to another free city park gazebo), and even checked out a few restaurants downtown, looking at menus and deciding on one which would work best. All that’s left is to get the license and decide on what we’re going to say…
There are so, so many things on my list of things to do (like get a job!), but I am so glad to be back up and running here. I hope you’ve all hung in there, because this transition is going to be a bit of a wild ride. But I am so excited!
