|House on Moving Day|
We also celebrated Amy G's big 3 with a party at the park in Riverside. Always a great to be with the Gibsons.
The Wednesday before closing we decided that I would leave and head to my parents and then we would stay till our house was ready. I was up at 4 to make sure that I had every thing put together and packed. I packed as much as I could the night before but I was packing us for 6 months in the event that our closing went through I had a back up rental at the beach. Talk about strategy. Packing for kids is tough but packing for a baby is real science. Once the car was packed we had literally no room, not even for a Ritz cracker. Robert slept in the pack n play, Emma in the swing and we were on a bedding pallet so to speak. We woke Robert around 6 and put him in the car. It was bitter sweet leaving. More sweet (we were ready to be gone) than bitter given our relations with Pitt bull family next door. We were blessed with so many great memories at that house though. Baby showers, wedding showers, birthday parties, holidays. Robert and Emma both came "home" there. It really sunk in then that even good things are hard and cause some pain. I didn't cry. I also don't think Robert really knew what was going on. He knew his stuff was packed and we were getting a new house but I think he still thought we would live in that house again. It took 3 hours to Orlando. We had major traffic once we hit the Old St Aug on ramp and we had to stop at Starbucks at the new 210 home exit as well as feed Emma.
