After four days of traveling, 2,650 miles of driving, spending wayyyyy too much money on gas, hotels and food, I am finally in Virginia Beach!!!!! We made it here yesterday around 3 pm and went over to the district office to pick up our keys to my new home!!! Yesterday was an emotional roller coaster ride for me, simply because all the months of planning and waiting for this move to happen had passed, and the day was finally here! I was going to see my new home, the place where my husband and I will share our life together for the next three years. I couldn't sleep all night the day before so I was very exhausted and cranky yesterday. I was also terrified by the lady who works for Lincoln and issued me my keys. She so politely informed me that I will get lost ALL THE TIME. She let me know that traffic is crazy, which we witnessed first hand while driving in from Richmond, but its nothing I'm not used to since I'm from California. She definitely stressed me out and almost made me have an anxiety attack once we left there.
I'll admit I was a little worried that my house wouldn't be as nice as I'd hoped since I knew we weren't gonna be living in one of the brand new, bright and shiny neighborhoods. But I was very pleasantly surprised!! I absolutely love our house!! Its so cute and the neighborhood is just adorable! We actually have three bedrooms: a master bedroom and two smaller rooms, but I guess they don't count the third room in the sq footage for some reason. All three rooms have closets but my room has a WALK IN CLOSET!!! I was so freaking excited when I opened it and saw how big it was!! I literally threw my arms out and twirled around I was so happy!! :) I also met my next door neighbor and she was very sweet and helpful and talked to us for about half an hour outside and told us all about the neighborhood.
So far it has been very quiet here, and the only bad thing is that my furniture arrived here before we did (that driver was just way too efficient I guess) so he had our stuff placed in a temporary storage unit at another companies wharehouse. He didn't even call me until yesterday to give me the number and name of the 3rd moving company I have to deal with. At this point I am so over it!!! They were supposed to deliver my furniture today but when I called yesterday the lady said they can't deliver until the 3rd or 4th of August since its a very busy time for them. Needless to say I was a little pissed, but theres nothing really I can do about it. I just feel bad for my inlaws and Grandpa because they are here with me and have nothing to sit on and no tv or anything to do, lol. We dont even have any pots or pans to cook with so that has been interesting.
Hopefully my stuff will be delivered next week when they said, if not I am going to be really stressed out!! Then it will be crazy and hectic trying to get it all set up before my hubby comes home soon. I really want to have as much as possible set up and make our home nice and cozy for him. I just want to make him happy when he gets off that darn ship!! :) I am so thankful and happy that the Lord got us here safely and that I have a wonderful family and in-laws to help me get through this move. I am going to be so sad when they leave and I am here all alone until my hubby comes home. I'm definitely a little worried about being here by myself and I know I'm gonna be so lonely!
I am excited though because there are so many wonderful bloggy friends that I will be able to meet now that I am on the East Coast!! I'm so excited to meet Mrs. Gambizzle and Samantha sometime soon!! Plus I will defintely need to meet up somewhere with Miss Jordan, Reina and Nicole!! Its gonna be fabulous.... :) Now that I have practically written a novel here, I'm off to enjoy a dinner on the floor with my family. We're having stouffers lasagna, garlic bread, and caesar salad!!! Mmmmmmmm I can almost taste it.... :)
