Moving on

Boy, things are getting (even more) stressful around here! We're at the final stages of our (extremely long and frustrating) renovation, and are packing to move new week.

Moving itself is stressful, but in this situation--where construction has been going on for years and we've been all but overwhelmed with dealing with our end of it during this time--I find it's really getting to me. Add in the fact that we just have SO MUCH stuff that needs to be packed and moved, not enough boxes, the contractors are still on-site at the new house, will they be done in time, how will the cats deal with the move, I hope the cats don't try to run away, will we have room to fit all our crap, did we make the right decisions, how are we going to pack all this crap, then we have to clean and sell the old house, don't forget I have my Physics final on Tuesday, etc. Oh yeah, and the holidays are upon us.

At least I can mostly ignore the holidays. Ours are low-key as we don't travel and don't exchange presents within my family, and with all this moving we're not doing any decorating or entertaining, so that much is good.

Once this is all over my stress levels should plummet and I can take my life back into control. In the meantime I'll just do what I can do.

I'm in the exact same position. So stressful! I just keep reminding myself that this too shall pass and new adventures are waiting on the other side. In the meantime, the purging has been cathartic.

Are you building a house from scratch or renovating an old one?

(Oops, just saw your message. It's just a bit busy here!)

We're kinda doing both, actually. We bought a house that needed so much work we basically had to rebuild it from the ground up (while staying in the original footprint, without changing its appearance). We designed the floorplans and everything inside, so part of what's been so stressful is the culmination of all this stuff.
