As of last Friday night at 9:30 pm, our house has been empty. Well, almost empty. We still have some clothes to wear in the meantime and a few pieces of furniture and other random items we need to sell.
It’s kind of strange walking throughout the house and seeing bare walls and clear floors. Our kids have spent the last 10 days with their grandparents so it has been eerily quiet, too. This is the longest we’ve been apart and we can’t wait to see them on Thursday.
We saved an air mattress and have been camping out in our master bedroom the last few nights. To be honest, it’s actually been kind of fun. A situation like this makes you realize how little you need to live comfortably.
The moving service estimates that we’ll receive our household goods in the UK on September 8. I wonder what, if anything, we’ll miss over the next 7+ weeks.
We begin our 21-hour drive to south Florida later tonight. We’ll be dropping our dog off with family, picking up our kids, and boarding a flight to Chile in the coming days.
After the stress of the last couple months, everything feels like it is coming together. As one season of our life comes to a close, another is set to begin. Our trip to Chile is the perfect segue.
While we’re on vacation, we’ll have our first-ever guest post as my brother shares his personal journey out of debt and towards financial independence.
