The Move: Part II

Well, The Move Part II (out of III) is well underway. I helped Z move a bunch of his stuff last night, as he needs to be out of his current house today to let the new tenants move in. Since our house is still at least two weeks away from being done – much later than we initially thought – we’ll be moving into his parents’ home in Cambridge, as they have been gracious enough to take us in temporarily. 

Despite the high stress level of being “homeless” and having to move several times in a few months, Z and I have been making the most of the situation – and even took some time these last few days to reminisce about all of the good times we had in his current house. That’s really where Z and I’s relationship blossomed and where new (and life-long) friendships were made. Although we’ll only live a street away from this house, it is kind of bittersweet to be moving out of it.

I am confident that the next chapter of our lives will produce more good memories and new friends – but, as cheesy as it sounds, it’s so fulfilling to know that the memories and friends from the old house will still be there as we move forward.

  1. I had the same bittersweet feelings when we moved. Good luck with the final move!

  2. how much longer is the voting going on? I have voted everyday. No lie. :)

  3. I feel like I'm going to be so nostalgic whenever we finally move. This is where we met and where our relationship started... I completely understand!

  4. Theresa, you have through September 9th to vote - thank you so much for voting everyday!
