More thoughts on moving

Well, I broke in the new house in typical "Lael" fashion. The kids and I took our first small load of essentials there this afternoon, and when it was time to go....of course....I couldn't find my keys anywhere. I was really impressed when I thought about how even I could lose keys in a 99.9% empty house. (still no cell phone).

Actually they were in the pocket on the back of the driver's seat in the minivan. I must have dropped them in there when I got Camille out of her carseat. Only about 10 minutes lost there.

Other notes:

  • moving is also good because you kind of get a fresh start feeling. A 2nd chance at New Year's resolutions. New house resolutions?? Maybe I'll make a list while I feel so inspired. It just doesn't seem possible that I would ever let this wonderful laundry room floor become hidden under our mountains of dirty clothes.
  • I also love how complete I feel when I find that one missing game piece, or puzzle piece, or little plastic triangle from the shape sorter, or Dora the Explorer get the idea.
  • finally, it is so neat to see the house at night for the first time. It looks really different from the daytime showing with the realtor. It's also even easier for me to visualize the Christmas tree.
