Its’s finally almost here! This Friday our utilities will by turned on and we get to start moving in! I’m so ready for this move to be over! This has been one stressful month.
In typical Riley fashion, I’ve already started planning Shanna’s birthday this year (her birthday is in November). I know what Matt and I are getting her, and my mom and grandma have offered to help with that as well. We want to completely redo her room. She’ll be 10, and we both feel like it’ll be nice for her to have a big girl room with matching decorations, and for it to just not feel like a prison. My mom is going to get her like a chair or beanbag for a reading corner, my grandma is going to get her a couple of bedsheet sets and my aunt is gonna look at getting some decor type things. Matt and I will get a couple of things as well, a new comforter or 2, some new pillows and a couple decorations as well. My family and I will put it all together while Matt and Shanna are out of the house.
So, yeah, my 10-year old step-daughter will have a better room than the rest of my house. So jelly.
Speaking of my step-kid, we were just told when she’ll be back in school. The district is starting on August 18, so now I get to back to school shop for her and get her cute school supplies. That’s my favorite part of back to school time, all the cute stuffs.
I have so much I can’t wait to do this year in our new home, and it’ll be the first time we have an actual house we can do it in. We can do Christmas at home, and birthdays and New Years, Easter and Halloween parties. We can start hosting Bible studies at home and we can finally do a couples Valentines day party.
I don’t really have much else going on right now, it’s all just planning for the future. Most of the packing and moving prep is done, it’s just moving now. I really, truly am excited for this next chapter of our lives though, however stressful it might be leading up to it.
Well, I’m gonna leave it here for now. I’ve got some work to do around the office this morning. Remember to be kind to everyone you meet, and that you are loved more than you know!!
