Current Struggles – Blogger, May I

Blogging, Life

I don’t always participate in these, but I saw this Blogger, May I daily prompts for the month of May! Gardening in High Heels did one and it caught my attention and I wanted to participate in one! I looked through the list of prompts and thought this one fit perfectly with what’s going on in my life right now. There are a lot of current struggles, that’s for sure!

Anyways, my biggest struggle right now is figuring out how to move our entire lives half way across the country in less than a month. LESS THAN A MONTH!! I’ve never moved on such a large scale before. Of course, I moved for college, but that was only two hours away and I got all my furniture in Pittsburgh, so I didn’t have to move any furniture when I moved to Pittsburgh. Now though, I have to move EVERYTHING and then some. There are so many logistics to take into account that it’s making my head spin!

Moving is so much more stressful than I first imagined. There is so much to box up, sort through, and of course I have to label everything to a tee with my own little star system. I also have to decide what I want to just leave with my parents that I won’t need any more once I move. Our weekends are also jammed with plans, so it makes packing all the more complicated!

We want to have everything mostly moved out by the first week of June and into a storage unit that I JUST reserved less than an hour ago! I’ve never had a storage unit before, so I know nothing about any of this stuff. I’ve also never used a U Haul before! We have a lot of things we need to map out, like where to stay while on the road, how far we need to make it each day, and even more things to sort out once we actually make it down to Houston! Moving might seem like fun and games, but it’s actually way more complex than I first figured it to be!

I feel like loading things into the storage unit is going to be like a real-life version of Tetris with boxes, unassembled IKEA pieces, and strange shaped furniture. Not to mention all the breakable things, mirrors, and canvas prints! Ack! It’s enough to make you want to curl up in a corner.

Although, I’m confident that this struggle will sort itself out as we go along! We have a lot of friends and family to help us out, which is amazing! I’m actually pretty happy about this struggle, I”m glad it’s happening! I’ve been waiting to move since high school and now that it’s finally happening I’m a tornado of emotions! Excited, anxious, nervous, overjoyed, and a little bit sad to be leaving the east coast after all this time!

Struggles make us stronger and lead us to new and exciting territory!
