Today is hard. I'm missing Kris terribly. I'm not sure why it's all hitting me today or bothering me more than other days; today just feels different.
There have been some major changes in Casa de Garner the past couple of weeks. So that makes major changes for the 3rd month in a row. To be honest. I feel like I'm almost at my breaking point. Seriosuly.
When we decided to embark on this new adventure, we also decided to put our house on the market. I felt like it would be too hard to take care of our house by myself, and Kris is always supportive so we listed it. Well, 45 days later we got the offer. There was one catch, be out in 3 weeks. So I've been packing up our first home (that we owned) box by box. It's a little depressing, and it really feels like I haven't made a dent, although I make myself pack 3 boxes every night. I'm hoping that's enough to get the job done.
Truthfully, I have mixed emotions about leaving this house. On one hand, we have never felt 100% confident that we chose the right neighborhood when we built it, but on the other hand, this is our first home. There may be many homes after this one, but there will never be another first home. When we built this house, I thought we'd be there for awhile, not forever, but for a lot longer than 2 years, 1 month, 2 weeks, and 2 days. In a way, it feels like our journey with our home is being cut short, but it also feels like we're doing exactly what we need to do.
Needless to say, my emotions are all over the place today. And I really miss Kris. So keep our family in your thoughts the next couple of weeks, we close on the house 2 weeks from today.
