"Hello Fresh Start! I've been waiting for you!"
I am moved. Praise the Lord!
My family spent seven hours helping me pack, load boxes onto a big truck, and unload them at my new pad. In a way, it's a little surreal. I feel like I am completely lost, yet right where I am supposed to be. This move has been a long time coming.
My entire life was crammed into the back of a truck today. That's an odd thing to see, just so you know. When I pulled into my new driveway for the first time today, I was absolutely giddy with excitement. I couldn't get things into the house quickly enough. I had so much energy and excitement coursing through my veins that I felt like I could have run a marathon. But that wore off soon enough, and now I'm freakin' exhausted. I would really like to take a shower, but I can't find the box that I put my body wash in, even though I'm sure I labeled the box on every side. I may just shower with dish soap today. My dish soap is apple scented.
Mid unpacking, Kylie and I went to orientation at her summer camp at the YMCA. She is completely stoked. Within five minutes of our getting there, she had made a new best friend, Kayla. Kayla's mom came over to talk to me, and it turns out that she is from my hometown, (which is nowhere close to here). I hope that this lucky streak continues. My girl and I are both in need of new faces and new places.
It's going to be a wonderful summer.
