Moving and my clothes

When we sold our house in 2015, we moved to my mom and dads house. It was supposed to be VERY short term. Maybe 6 weeks or so. I’m laughing so hard as I write because we were there 16 months. Thank you Mom and Dad for allowing our crew to invade your home. We had stuff absolutely everywhere.

Steve and I lived in a bedroom. It wasn’t large and it wasn’t small. When you live in one bedroom you must only have the bare easentials. So most of our stuff went into storage. The biggest storage unit available was rented. Because you know I have a chair sickness and all my lovelies needed to be stored.

Laat Saturday we were able to close out the storage unit. What a sweet monthly raise we received. Storage units are a blessing and a curse all at the same time!  It was like Christmas. I squealed as boxes were removed from the unit. They had my handwriting all over them. Charma’s shoes!!! Charma’s dresses! Charma’s hoodies! Yes I have a whole box of hoodies and bathing suits. I’m not ashamed.

“Steve where are your clothes boxes?”

“I only had a couple of boxes that went storage,  most of my clothes fit in the closet at mom and dads.”


Thank  you to our sweet friends and family who show up on a Saturday in sweltering July to help us move. For some it was the third time. You all deserve so much more than what I can physically give you. I’ll speak to Jesus when I get the heaven.


As the week has progressed it has been so exciting to open boxes and see our belongings. It’s going  to be so fun decorating this big house.

It seems as there there might be a problem. My clothes…..Steve might have had all of his at the house but mine have been showing up everywhere. Not only from our closet at mom and dads. But boxes and boxes and boxes. There are suitcases full. Every time we clean out another area “hey here’s another box/bag/suitcase/purse/backpack full of your clothes. I try not to smile because I know someone might be annoyed. Bring it on people. I’m wallowing in my new wardrobe.

The only problem would be the new house closet. Designing and putting in a new closet system has not been a priority. Ain’t nobody from the wedding going in my closet!!! So…….here is the current closet. You should see me trying to find clothes for work. Cause you know I am not wearing old stuff!!!
