Two weeks from now I'm moving 300 miles away from here and I am remarkably relaxed. It has been crazy summer days, and yet I feel good. When we finally made the decision to move, we made a long list of everything we needed to do to make it happen. From finding a new house and selling our old to little things like all the places that need a change of address and beyond. We included work relayed, house related and friends and family. We took the list and divided it up to sections for each week until the move and now each week we are simply checking off tasks just as we do on our normal to do list. Frustration has cdrveloped as things we had hopes to wrap up quickly didn't such as finding a new house (finally got one today, hooray!). And of course some open items we can't control and that adds stress (read that as buy my beautiful home today, please.). But all in all I feel netter than I have any otherove despite this time moving with two kids and having many more items on the list.
What I have learned is that dividing any big project into smallanageable weekly chinks makes it relatively stress free.
Being relatively stress free alloww me to enjoy the process.
While I will miss the Bay area, I am excited about our new adventure and relaxed enough to enjoy it.
