The STUFF is Gone!
I am writing this post, while breathing sighs of relief, from the floor of our FINALLY empty house. Getting all of our belongings into a 5×8 trailer has been a heck of a task. All in all, the moving and packing hasn’t been the worst thing I’ve ever done, but it has been a tedious project I thought would never end (much like the painting). I couldn’t be happier to have it all behind us. This was the challenge we were dreading the most in the whole “getting ready to rv full-time” thing. Moving is generally an awful task, and Matt and I have moved 6 times together before, but this move posed new challenges since we didn’t have the luxury of just boxing things up and dealing with them at our next destination.
This meant throwing away A LOT of things.
YIKES. That is an embarrassing amount of trash…and the craziest part is that it all came out of nowhere! Anyone who has visited our house can tell you we did not live like those people you see on hoarders, so how we had THAT much junk is beyond me.
The good news: all we’re left with are the things we’ll be moving into Lucille!
I really hope my plants don’t die…
The last two weeks have been filled with lots of sweat, a little blood, and only a few tears. The dogs, on the other hand, have had it pretty easy.
We are two days behind our originally-scheduled departure, but I’m ok with that. Going with the flow is something we’re excited about as we start out on this new journey.
We will be heading down to south Texas tomorrow morning, stopping along the way in Austin to pick up our new couch at Ikea! Once we’ve reunited with Lucille, we’ll be finishing up the renovation, moving in, and then setting out on our new adventure! We’re only a few short weeks away from officially being able to call ourselves full-time RVers!
