Catching some Zzz's

I forgot how absolutely exhausting a move can be.  Those last few days, it's like I was cramming for a final exam, except I was trying to figure out how much I could reasonably cram into the last few boxes I had.  I refused to buy more on the last day of packing.  HA!  I put a lot of mental effort into making sure all the last minute details were checked off, not to mention the physical work that goes into moving.  I'm pretty sure the first few days after the move, my body quit working at full capacity because it had actually gone into self-preservation mode.

All we've wanted to do is SLEEP for nearly a week now.  Even the kids were exhausted.  The toddler took a three-and-a-half hour nap the day of the move, I guess because we got up so early that day . . . but it was actually fantastic because it let us get the U-Haul unloaded without her underfoot.  One of the boys dozed off while getting his hair cut the next day.  Nobody was fighting bedtime.  It was bliss.

So that's where I've been.  Trying to sneak in mini-naps here and there just to catch up on my sleep.  Except I couldn't really, because most days I've been staring at boxes to be unpacked, or I've had to wait around on service calls or delivery trucks to get things situated here.  It was Day 5 before we had living room furniture, and we still haven't gotten our new dining table yet.  So, meals have been fun.  Or not.

We're slowly getting back into a routine, though, and I can't wait for the weather to clear up a little, and for us to get out and explore.  I already have several places (parks, museums, etc) on my list!

I can't believe we made it all the way through the Blogging through the Alphabet challenge!  I'm pleasantly surprised that I managed to post every week, even if a few weeks have been rushed and uninspired.  I just wanted to stick to my commitment and follow through on posting every week.  I'm a little sad that it's over.  I've enjoyed seeing what others come up with each week.

  1. Glad you can get some rest through this. And everything will eventually fall into place. :-)

  2. Moving is tough! Get as much rest as you need. And I'm very proud of myself and everyone else who completed all 26 weeks! It was fun and I'm going to miss coming up with ideas.
