I knew this day would come

Earlier this week I announced that a couple was coming to look at our house. They seemed really interested but apparently didn’t make their decision in time because we had another couple look at it yesterday and they just signed a lease agreement. I know I should be super happy that they signed a 2-year lease agreement with the option to buy at the end but I am so sad! I cried for 30 minutes and all C could say was “you knew this day was coming.” Yes I knew it was coming but I didn’t expect it to hurt. This is the most perfect house! It has everything I could have asked for and then some. We have so many memories here that I cannot bare the thought of leaving. This was our first house as a couple. The first house we brought Princess P home to. Her first Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Easter was here.

It just hurts!

I know I will be a mess Wednesday when the movers are packing the boxes. And it will be even worse when they load the boxes onto the truck Thursday. To make matters worse we still haven’t found a house where we are moving to! So all of our stuff is going into storage and we are staying in a tiny 1-bedroom apartment until we find something.

That could be days or months.

But C, showing affection in the best way he knows how, has agreed to take us to the beach today. It only takes us an hour to get there and I wanted to take Princess P for the first time. We are going to spend the first part of the morning hopefully shopping followed by lunch and some actual beach time. Then I promised C we could get some crab legs.

I hope that brings me out of my depression!



  1. That would be hard. We are in a townhouse so all of our first have happened here but I am ready for a house. Good luck with the move on Thursday.

  2. I am so sorry you are having to move… but starting over can be fun… making a new home for your family will be awesome! You can decorate and change things up… you can make new friends (your blog will still be in the same place)… it should be great!!

    I hope you enjoy the beach… I’m jealous!!

  3. I know exactly how you feel. I have picture of my baby L looking out the window with a sold sign in the background of the house we brought her home to. At first I couldn’t even look at the picture without breaking down. My hubby was actually upset at me for taking it. Now, I look back fondly, as we have an even better house, filled with new memories and a new baby. Hang in there something better is always around the corner. :)) Your Princess is lucky to have such a sweet, thoughtful, sensitive mommy!!! You guys will be o.k. wherever you are.

  4. I completely sympathize with finding a new home. MY hub and i have been looking for almost 9 months and have made offers on 6 home and havent gotten a home yet. Its a good market, but things are going fast. I’m sure you’ll find something thought :)

  5. You’ll make new memories. Hope you find the perfect house. Good luck.

  6. I’ve been living in the same house for 18 years and I absolutely hate it. So does my husband. You’re lucky to have at least had a comfy home for a while. Hopefully, the next one will also be great.

  7. i know how hard it is to leave behind a “house friend.” but, in looking back, things go on and tey do get better, even the inbetween times you will find moment to cherish. keep your chin up and thinks will be ok.

  8. Bless your heart! Moving is always so hard, especially once you’ve established a family. The house becomes a home. I am sure you will find a wonderful home in your new city!
