Whoop, whoop! After 7+ hours of packing and cleaning, weâ€™re finally resting happily at my in-lawsâ€™ (1.5 hours north of Orlando).
It was truly a long, long day! Letâ€™s get this recap startedâ€¦
Woke up early with a bit of a hangover from our going away party. When will I ever learn that 1 Glasses of Wine = Happy Caitlin and 2 = Slightly Hungover Caitlin?! Nothing that a bowl of oatmeal canâ€™t cure (with a banana + coconut). Eaten on my mattress in the middle of my living room!
After breakfast, we headed out to pick up my car (it needed repairs before traveling 500+ miles) and then we picked up the trailer. Can you believe we packed our entire two-bedroom house in an SUV, a Civic, and a 5 by 8 trailer? Well, we did sell ALL of our furniture except two chairs!
And then we went to Dandelion CommuniTea, a vegetarian cafe. This is the Husbandâ€™s #1 favorite restaurant in all of Orlando, and he insisted we stop by â€œone last time.â€
He was very sad face while we waited for our order.
We both got the Bean There, Done That wrap (but he got vegan cheese and I ordered feta). It came with a side of hummus + chips.
With that full in our bellies, we started to load up the cars and the trailer. It was BLAZING hot outside and definitely counted as a workout!
In fact, I went up and down our stairs FIFTY SIX times (yes, I counted). That means I walked down (with heavy boxes) and walked back up 1,568 stairs.
All I can say isâ€¦ Thank goodness we are moving to a first-floor duplex!
At some point during the move, I drank a beer and it was everything I hoped it would be!
After cleaning the apartment from top to bottom (itâ€™s amazing how dirty stuff gets even when youâ€™re a very clean person!), I snacked on a banana.
Once everything was loaded and cleaned, we took showers and got behind the wheels drive to my in-lawsâ€™. My driving buddy was James (by the way, the dogs were totally freaking out about the move!). We snacked on Goldfish and a lollipop as we drove.
Annnnnd once we arrived, I made Split Pea Soup (Amyâ€™s brand) and an English muffin.
WHEW! What a day, huh? Iâ€™m exhausted, but the hard part is over â€“ weâ€™re driving to North Carolina and unloading on Monday. Unloading is a LOT easier than loading + cleaning! We were pretty determined to get back out $965 security deposit so it was all worth it!
If you could move anywhere, where would you go? I want to move to Hawaii!
