Time is inevitably going to speed up in the next few weeks as our plans bring us closer to 'the next stage in our lives'- moving our family back home.
We sat down to look at houses on mls again, and I have to admit there are some beautiful homes out there- and in our price range, too! Its quite surprising, actually. I am really hoping for a home with an open floor plan, so I can keep busy in the kitchen while still keeping an eye on the twinlets if they're playing in the living room. Some of the other wants/needs for me in our new home include a pantry, hall linen closet, and a window facing the yard so as the babies grow and get bigger (and able to play in the yard by themselves), I can keep an eye on them while I'm in the house completing my chores. That's not a comprehensive list, but a list nonetheless.
In the meantime, packing will begin. I want to declutter and thin out what we've accumulated since living in the trailer, moving into a home of our own, and having children. There are a lot of things that husband and I haven't worn, looked at or used since knowing eachother, and its those things that I want to either donate, sell or just plain get rid of. Its going to be a huge job, and he isn't going to be around to help me with it, so when his parents come out here to help us with our move, I will enlist their help instead of his.
I am so excited to finally be going back home- my dream come true.
I can hardly wait!
