This morning I went through my normal morning routine for the last time. Despite the sale of our house falling through, we are going ahead with the purchase of our new home and the closing is bright and early tomorrow. We’ll take possession at that time and immediately begin cleaning and painting and doing what needs to be done to make it “our” home.
We’re happy and excited to finally begin our new life in our new community even though it’s bittersweet to leave the home we’ve shared and loved and in which we’ve brought up our children from toddler and primary student to teenager and young adult.
So today we’ll pack up all of the little things that have remained unpacked to keep life normal, because we’ll want to take them to our new home right away to help find our new normal as quickly as possible. That means that tomorrow everything will be packed and rushed and different, making today the last time I went through what has been my normal morning routine for these past 13 years.
It’s a weird feeling.
What keeps life “normal” for you?
