Well it's official, we are going to be moving to Hawaii in three months. Eric got a six month job contract in Hawaii. So we are all going to go.
Over Christmas break, Eric and I almost at the exact same moment said, "we need to sell our house." We didn't know really why but felt it was the right thing to do. Maybe it has to do with the fact that we spend around $500 in commuting costs each month, him going back and forth to work and me just running to the store eats a lot of gas money. We just felt that the time was right to put our house on the market (scheduled to be listed the first week of March).
Funny thing about the whole thing is that we really didn't have a feeling of where we were suppose to go other than the fact that maybe we will live in an apartment a few blocks away from Eric's work until we figured out where we wanted to live.
Well Friday the company asked him to go to Hawaii. We assume that is why we didn't feel like moving anywhere.
Its hard to get ready to sell a house, my goodness, I didn't realize how much stuff we have, how many dings and crayon marks are on the walls. Every time I work in a room I throw away three or four trash bags, mind you the small kitchen kind but still, full bags. And it seems I can go back in the room and do it some more. Where does all the stuff come from, and how does it seem to find a hiding place? Probably little kids have something to do with it :) But now that we know we are going to Hawaii, and are going to have to store stuff, I feel like much more needs to go.
Anyway, I feel I have been alone in my moving agony the last few months because I haven't told anyone, and now it is out in the open and I feel great. So if anyone wants to come help :)
We have visitors booked for Thanksgiving and the last week of September but you are more than welcome to come and stay with us in our little tiny apartment in Oahu!
Looking forward to luaus and learning the Hula...well thats what Bethany wants to do!
