We have to move so out with the old and in with the new

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

When we returned home from the cruise, there was a letter waiting for us in our mailbox saying that we have 60 days to vacate the property as the owner is returning. Now I call that a welcome back message emoticon.

So now I sit here blogging instead of trying to start packing some things up. We opted to try to purchase a place that we will live in for a while and then rent out when we move back into our house.

I was debating on whether my clothes should make the move to the new place or be put into the donation bins. I've already given away most of my clothes when I was pregnant but I saved some thinking that I will be able to fit back into them. That might still be the case after I reach my second goal. I'm about 4lbs away from my prepregnancy weight but I feel like I'm 20lbs away. I think I need to lose a good 10lbs to even think about fitting into some of my old clothes again. I think after 2 kids my body is just NOT the same as it was before even when I get back to the weight.

The like shopping for new clothes but I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford to shop for new clothes after we purchase this house. I think that my mind will be save mode to recover the money we put out for house and the things we need to purchase. One good thing is that I work from home so I don't need work clothes. I usually just hang around the house in my gym clothes (so I'm always ready to work out).
I do need some church clothes though. I hate going there wearing the same thing and not getting dressed up. It's the only time during the week that I have to be around people so I guess I should look presentable emoticon.

Well enough procrastinating. I'm off to go through my clothes and once again pare them down. I think that I will end up donating just about all of the summer stuff and keeping a lot of the winter things since for some magical reason they seem to fit.

I'll leave you with a photo from the cruise

I'll blog about my Gluten, Dairy, Egg Free diet after I meet with the dietitian this Friday.

    Wow, Leah you look so good! I can't believe that you got THAT kind of letter awaiting from you -- talk about a welcome home, indeed!

I went into big time save mode when we moved bought the house we're living in now, its kind of scary going to a mortgage! It is nice, though to be a home owner! I wouldn't trade it for anything! Good luck with the move -- are you moving within your town?

Keep up the great work 4#'s from your pre pregnancy is emoticon
