Today is the last Monday that The Martin’s will spend in my parents’ house. I am so beyond excited about this and what’s in store. The problem is, I feel like I have purchased so much, and it seems like I have so much more to go! I have been on the website for our new place every day at least four times a day, just looking at the layout and how and where I would be able to fit things.
I don’t know where I am going to be able to store my out of season wardrobe and I have no idea what I am going to do with Spud’s room. Of course, John being a man, has little to no concern and is only focused on moving and sitting on the couch. But, me, I am worried about getting groceries, getting setup, dishes, old and do I need new ones, wall art, rugs, and decor. Not to mention I need an office chair. Although I have all of these thoughts and light anxiety, I am still so elated to be in this place at this time. I can’t wait to see how Spud will adjust to us now being in our own place. He is so attached to my parents and he keeps asking, “Are they going to come with us”. He doesn’t understand yet, but I’m hoping he will love it just as much as we do.
So, I lucked up and found a living room rug at “At Home”. I am always so worried about going in there, simply because at one point, I felt that all of their decor was kind of old school. But I actually found a lot of pieces that I really like in there. I purchased some wall art for my bedroom as well. I am going with cream, black, and tan in my room. So, go checkout my Pinterest (Jauntily Jaided) to get a glance at my home inspo, but also if you have any ideas, feel free to send them my way. This was just an update guys, but I am so excited and anxious at the same time. The best way for me to gain a small amount of comfort is to share and get it out. Also, the pic in this post is to show you guys how much of a mess I’ve made and a bit of what I’ve purchased. Today I have to run a few errands, we are going to go to John’s mom’s house to pack up a few of the things we have at her place. I guess we will see how the rest of this week goes. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. (lol)
Life never has a set and steady beat, so somehow you have to find your way. But something that I’ve found out is that in all of my chaotic thoughts and maneuvers God always brings in the calm and has a place for everything in my life.
