Life is feeling very surreal right now. Last night was our last time driving down from our "weekend house" to our "main house" which is mostly empty and has very few places to sit.
Matt drove the Uhaul up with Remi late Friday night. I was too tired after a day of loading, so I left early with Kit and Ella and got up just before 10 am on Saturday. (Totally picked the right size truck; all those games of tetris finally paid off). Oscar stayed down to go to the Governor's Ball music festival on Randall's Island (his birthday present). By the time I got up there, Matt was well into emptying the Uhaul, and though it took most of the day to pack, it was pretty quick to pull everything out again.
Unfortunately, our shed isn't finished (getting on to him today), so we have loads of stuff piled up in the house. But it made me so happy to see my furniture in my house. Can't wait to get up there on Friday. When people ask me "are you excited about moving to Singapore?" (which they do, constantly), I say, "Not yet. But I am excited about moving up to Vermont for the summer."
So here are some photos of the chaos up there:
And while it's a mess, and there is still a lot that needs to be done, I can see the potential of it all. Kit and Ella didn't want to come back down yesterday. And when we go up next week, we won't have to come back down for nearly 6 weeks! YAY! Then I may start getting excited about moving to Singapore.
