Today we got our shelving and dressers and I could finally get rid of the last of the boxes. I thought that I would be thrilled and for a few minutes as I looked around I was.
I then realized I had nothing to do. I can’t do laundry until our washer and dryer come Tuesday and I can’t really make much food wise until the fridge gets here.
Plus it doesn’t feel like home. I know it will eventually but right now it feels like a house with our stuff and some new stuff put into it. I am sure some of you understand that.
I should be used to this feeling. I’ve moved a lot in my life. Used to amount to about 1 new place every year and a half but now it feels wrong.
I know part of it is the depression and part of it is the adjustment. I’ll deal with it I always do.
I hope you feel less depressed as the week goes on as you arrange the house the way you like it. I think having the washer & dryer will help, believe it or not! You have gotten through much worse, and remember, moving is stressful no matter what the circumstances are, even if it’s into a new home. It’ll get better for you!!! XO
It takes time to make a house feel like a home. Just be patient and try not to beat yourself up. Take care!
