When life seems hopeless, rearrange things for a dose of dopeness. – Kid Cudi
I don’t remember if I mentioned it in my last post, but we are moving! Yes, we are! This mama is going from the busy city life to a toned-down suburban lifestyle. I’m honestly not sure how Ryu and I are going to take into that transition, but we are willing to try. There are so many reasons why Lovey and I decided to move, but in all honesty I’m very excited. I’m used to moving. It’s what I have done my entire life. However, Ryu isn’t used to it and I hope that we don’t move so much after this. Lovey is moving our family into a house. We, or I should say I, have lived in an apartment my entire life. Well most of my life. Ryu’s only lived in an apartment his entire life and he’s a bit nervous about moving into a much bigger space. I’m excited because our growing family needs that extra space. It’s been a bit hectic with everyone living on top of each other. With an infant that needs lots of rest and downtime and a very active 8-year old it just seems too much in one small space.
Goodbye condo living! You were good to me the last 5 years. I have/had the best landlord living in this condo! He made my renting life so much easier. Lovey would want me to be packing right now, but I’m just trying to take some time off and have some “me” time before I continue. After Lovey and I got married we had made the decision that we would eventually move. We were looking for places to rent or buy, but his timeline fell about 6 months from now. We both were okay with that idea. However, under some circumstances that happened we decided that we needed to move a lot sooner. Even with that time frame moving up several months we didn’t expect that we would be moving less than a month after we got married. We actually received word that the place we were looking at was available a week after. Our blessings continued to pour in and I am extremely thankful for this move.http://hoothootadventures.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/IMG_0483.mp4
I’m slowly realizing that even through a lot of stress and pressure of getting things done at the end of the day we are blessed to be receiving all of this. We are still renting, but we only plan on doing so for a year and we hope that we are able to purchase a house of our own next year. As mentioned above, I’m going from living in a major city, to living in the suburbs. It’ll be much more laid back, slow, and quiet. In reality, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it yet or how I’m going to take it. It’s a little frightening to think that I’m transitioning from being a full-time working mom to a full-time stay-at-home mom. I want to take that time to work on my ideas and make them into a reality. I don’t want to fully stop working. I’ve figured out ways to make money before by staying at home during my maternity leave the first time. However, I went back to work not long after and sort of dropped that vision of becoming my own business owner. We’ll see where this takes me. I don’t really want to mention too much of it just yet since I’m nowhere near starting any of it. I’m just excited to be starting off fresh with my life, married life at that.
