moving along

So I packed some stuff this week. Good thing too, since we’re moving to the apartment in 2 weeks. Well, technically it’s 3 weeks, but one of those weeks we’ll be in Denver all week, so I won’t be able to get anything done here.

Today I’ve been trying to process the fact that I’m going to be leaving my family here in Georgia. What a challenge that’s going to be! I told Lindsey I was going to pack my sisters in with our stuff. I just can’t imagine not being able to hang out with them, not being able to have them all come over here, not being able to go over there for dinner or a game night. They are so much a part of my life and enjoy spending time with immensely. It’s going to be a difficult adjustment that’s for sure. I tried my best to convince mom and dad to move to CO with us, but I don’t think it’s the path for them. At least not right now. *sigh*

Speaking of sisters….Kayleen is spending the night tonight. She is so much fun! We sat in the kitchen and talked for about an hour this afternoon, and it was such a precious time! It’s still weird for me to sit across the table from this growing young lady, who has so many thoughts and ideas about the world. She looks like me sometimes too, which doesn’t help the weird factor. I still have the memories in my head of her littleness, and it’s hard to shake those memories. They still feel like realities, until I sit and have long conversations with her. Then I become so entirely aware of how she’s changing and growing and learning. She’s an awesome person, and I’m so glad she’s my sis.

I’m hoping that the more I try to process this move ahead of time, the more the actual move will be easier to adjust to. Hopefully my reasoning is sound….
