Tonight is our last night in our ‘new’ place. Our old place will have new paint, carpet, shower and no more water damage in the walls of the kitchen and master shower. Despite all the buildup and chaos leading up to the move back, I’m feeling kind of sad to have to leave our current home.
What will I miss about our current place?
I’ll miss living in the village where we can walk to restaurants, cafes, the gelato store, my favorite boba café, an awesome breakfast café and bakery… Ill also miss the new appliances- the quiet dishwasher, fast washer and dryer (that’s also on the same level as our living area), and all the space (we’re moving from a 4-bedroom to a 2-bedroom).
You may be wondering why don’t you just stay there then? Well, to start, our old place is right by the ocean! The view just cannot be beat. Secondly, the rent for this place is almost twice of what we currently pay.
We’ll finally be able to settle into what was supposed to be our ‘new’ life of four. But I can’t help but feel somewhat attached to this home that we made for ourselves these last three months. The people who helped us find this place and make this our home will always have a special place in our heart. This was the home we brought our brand new, 1-day-old son. This was where our parents met this cutie pie for the first time. And I’ll always remember how Jacob pranced and skipped around this place these last several months.
Thanksgiving is next week, I can’t believe how quickly time has passed. Then our new nanny starts the following week and then I’m back to work the week after that. I am not looking forward to being away from these kiddos. I jokingly say I’ll be okay leaving Jacob since he is a whole lot of toddler these days. I look at him and am nostalgic for his baby days. I can see why people have babies after their little ones grow up.
It’ll be another adjustment. We’ll take it day by day and see how things go. Stay tuned…
