MicroBlog Monday: Wanderer

Right now we are in the middle of our move. Last Monday the moving company came and packed our whole apartment and carted it away. Since it takes 10-14 to get our stuff to our new destination we decided that we would fly to my parents home for a week so we wouldn’t have to try to entertain Muppet in an empty apartment. It has been great spending time with them and watching Muppet bond with her family. But there is a sense of displacement about it all. We are living out of suitcases and that is always tricky with an 18 month old.

But then to make matters even more fun, the house we were planning on renting fell through 2 days ago. Luckily J will be working for a large company that can put us in temporary (furnished) housing once we get to Seattle so that we have time to find a place to live, but since we are doing that all our stuff is going into storage. Had I known this would be the case I would have kept a few things with us such as our stroller. But nope, all of it is gone and I won’t see it until we find a permanent place to live. This is definitely not ideal. Not to mention we will continue living out of our suitcases for around another 4 weeks. While I’m grateful for the options we have as far as housing I do hate feeling like I don’t belong anywhere. I will be so grateful to be done with all of this.

  1. As a former “military brat” I understand the living-out-of-suitcases exercise. It’s really a pain in the arse.

    Wishing you the best as you move to my old home town. After you’ve settled in, wander over to West Seattle and take a drive along Alki Avenue SW. Very pretty. We used to take the ferry to Vashon Island from the Fauntleroy dock and spend the weekend at my grandparents’ house on the Puget Sound side beach. Many fond memories.

    Best of luck to you!

  2. Well that just sucks about the house! Let me know if we can help in any way. There’s a lot of options in North and West Seattle

  3. Yikes, that is not ideal even if it’s not the end of the world. We had a living-out-of-suitcases few weeks when we moved across the country too — kids are troopers! Good luck with the housing.

  4. Of course things can never go smoothly. Hang in there and eventually you will get settled in your place and look back on this time as a “what in the heck were we thinking? How did we survive that?” moment. Big moves just don’t ever go as planned. Hopefully your little one is a trooper and just rolls with the challenges makes it so much easier. Good luck!!!!

    That is so stressful. It’s one thing if you knew you weren’t seeing your stuff for a while. It’s another to have that sprung on you. I hope it all settles down soon.
