Being a Coastie Wife- The move

The bags are packed, the house is empty (dirty but empty... I will clean after this post) and I am all by my lonesome. Mike took the kids and is heading up to my parent's house already and I have stayed behind to close up the house. I can't believe how sad I feel right now, not that I am leaving this place and all of the wonderful people I have met but that I am alone. I dream about moments like this, beg for moments like this and now all I want is to see my family....

Separation can be the hardest part of being a Coastie Wife especially if you have a lot of reflection that is needing to be done and then you are forced to do it all at once. It can be depressing, it can make you cry, but most of all it can make you stronger. I look around the house right now and I don't see the mountain of work ahead of me I just see what's keeping me from my family and so the thought of snuggling up with my kiddos and my man will push me on to wrap this up and run to them (well...I will drive most of the way but I am sure I will run to them when I pull up in the driveway). Being a Coastie Wife sometimes is all about using what you have to get to where you want and with that I'm gonna clean!!

So true!!! I'll be making the drive up by myself as well and am sure it'll be super weird as well! Safe travels to all of you and best of luck with the in-limbo vacation time and getting settled in! I look forward to meeting up with you in New England :D
