I'm back and we're moving!

Holiday Hurrah is over. I can now return to my life. Actually, I’m starting a new life. Starting last November and continuing into December we were in negotiations to SELLL OUR HOUSE! We all finally agreed on a price, we passed the home inspection, waiting on the termite inspection but a closing date is set—for now—and we’re proceeding as if it will happen.
Since our new house is about 2 months away from finished, we’ll be living in a motor home on site. And this is where life gets interesting. We’ll have to pack for what we’ll need while living there. We’ll have to pack and items will go to storage, and then we’ll have to move from storage to the house. I have the LISTS! And definitely checking it twice—should I take “this” or send to storage? So reading over lists a couple of times a day and adding/marking off daily.
Literally at the top of my NOW list is my exercise materials. I’m looking forward to NOT having as much cleaning to do as I do with the house. I’m looking forward to daily walks and some strength training—should be very little in my schedule now. And why not? I’ll probably not be asked to help the workers with their projects, so my time is (mostly) mine.
I’m planning what books to take and where to pack others and have easy access to them. I’ll need to remember my Lenten reading materials.
I will miss easy laundry access. Well, a bit of harder work in the short term and then laundry access at home.
Thanks to my SparkFriends who have been checking on me and encouraging me. I’ve missed SparkPeople and my friends, and I now know even more certainly that this is a great site, these are great people, and I can’t think of anyone I’d rather be on this journey with. Nothing like time away to show what/who is important.
Let’s GO on the winter challenge!
