The last 96 hours have been some of the craziest of our lives. Even thought the crazy isn’t completely over … We are starting to get settled in this transition part of our lives.
Thursday: We woke up at 6:30 AM on Thursday … I can only assume we were up past Midnight on Wednesday. We picked up the tiniest UHAUL and headed to the house to pack up everything we owned. We made great progress the 1st half of the day … Not sure if we were just tired, or if it was poor planning, but the 2nd half of the day went so slowly. It was those last few boxes … The things that didn’t seem to go anywhere. Eventually, we got it all packed up and moved over to my mom’s house.
Friday: Again, woke up at 6:30 for the closing. We met our realtor at the title company, signed a few pieces of paper, and walked out a few thousands of dollars poorer than we were an hour before. Though, as our friend pointed out, our net worth is probably skyrocketing right now since we don’t have a mortgage! After the closing, we ate brunch with our amazing realtor, then hopped in the car and drove 5 hours to Michigan.
Saturday: We shot the coldest wedding … Outside … in 47 degree weather. Even though it was cold, the day was beautiful, and the couple was well worth the goosebumps. After the wedding, we drank a bottle of cheap champagne and ate some Taco Bell (we do this after every single wedding).
Sunday: We woke up super early, gathered our things, and drove back to Indiana. We met some of our Twitter friends from California for lunch, and had an amazing time getting to know them in ‘real life’. After lunch, we came back home and tried to get a few more things settled. We were tired … our lives are still in my mom’s garage.
Today, I’ve been working like a mad-woman. Editing, designing, emailing, shooting … Things are still crazy! We are so excited that we actually got through the closing without any problems. Now, we’re looking for jobs and a place to live in Portland.
We definitely have more to reflect on about the house … but for now, we just wanted to send a smoke signal into the air to let everyone know we survived.
