Moving Day – The Closing of a Chapter

I know I have been terrible with posting this week but life has just been so darn hectic.  Tomorrow we are officially making the move to Buffalo, NY!  These past 2 weeks have been a complete whirlwind and working out and planning meals has been nearly impossible.  I’m hoping to regain some sense of routine and normalcy next week.

But in the meantime, here is an update of the past week (or two)…

Lots of lunches, wine, and emotional goodbyes

My last day of work was Wednesday and it was very difficult for me to say goodbye to my coworkers who have become my good friends and pack up my desk.  I am a person of routine and any big life changes are usually very difficult for me.  The good thing is I have been so busy that I haven’t had too much time to panic about it.  The bad thing is I am really going to miss my job and my friends and I’m afraid I will be having some serious homesickness.  My coworkers sent me off the right way though with lunches just about every day, an awesome happy hour, a myriad of thoughtful gifts, and even a homemade cake!

It’s always so sad to start a new life chapter, but so wonderful to know that you have cultivated friendships that won’t end when a new chapter begins.

A few attempts at training for the half marathon

I hit the road one measly time so far this week for around 3 miles.  Yikes.

But it was a beautiful day to get out with the B-ster.  Too bad I woke up this morning to more snow (I guess I should get used to it, huh?).

More phone calls than I’ve made in my entire life

Moving your entire life, leaving a job, preparing for a new job, finding a place to live, and selling your house are no simple tasks.  I think I have made more phone calls and done more paperwork this week than I have in my whole life.  Thank goodness for Kris; I don’t know how people do all of this by themselves.

Packing, cleaning, planning, panicking

Tomorrow Kris and I are moving our necessities to the new apartment and the moving company will bring the rest next week.  Even though I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, there is still so much to do!  Every once in a while I find myself getting to the point of overwhelmed-ness that I just feel paralyzed.  But luckily I’ve been able to snap out of it and keep moving.  I’m looking forward to being settled and getting back to my routine.  The half marathon is only 6 weeks away!!

Have a great weekend everyone!
