It's been a minute....


A lot has happened within a short amount of time.

The big move has happened and it was quite the ordeal.

Want to learn a little about yourself?? Pack up your life and move it from town to town...

You won't be disappointed!

I enrolled the Spawn in her new school today.

Talk about an ordeal...

Not only did I have to show two proofs of residency but I also had to consent to a home visit.

Really?!?

No joke, folks! Apparently the school in Bellaire is not a 'school of choice' school, which means you have to prove you live in the school district to attend.

I'm currently waiting for the bus driver to stop by and introduce himself on his way home...

Even with all the oddities involving the school, I have to say, I'm really loving this cute little town. The school tour went well and I'm excited for the Spawn to start her first day. The house is perfect and in a perfect location, sandwiched between three lakes and a short drive to Lake Michigan. The drive to and from work isn't even all that bad.... I get to listen to music and collect my thoughts every morning and every evening.

In all, it was a much needed change at a very crucial time for me.

Here's to new beginnings!

I say, "Here, here!" and quaff a brew in toast of "new beginnings"!

The new place sounds promising. Good luck!

I have to agree, change is good. I've been needing some good change for a while now.

    It's amazing how friends will disappear when it's time to move. I try to do everything myself.
I do most things by myself, but thankfully I had a helper for my big stuff. There is no way I could have done that by myself.

    Moving home is stressful.
    I'm moving in a couple of months time. Packing up is okay - shove everything in a box - it's the unpacking that gets me down!
Living in a second story apartment has made this move excruciating. I see stairs and just cringe.... I've trekked up and down them so much.

    it IS a sweet little town! I looked at buying a house there back in the day, but decided I didn't want to commute that far to TC. I ended up in Elk Rapids, which is also pretty cool. I love hearing about northern MI thru your blog!
So far I'm feeling pretty good about this move. It's such a welcoming little town, I'm feeling so many positives.

It's been pretty chaotic.... I am glad that things are finally starting to settle into a routine. I think we all know how much I like my routines.

    Congrats on your move to your new place ! Always sucks to move and start over but exciting to no doubt ! Cheers to a new beginning for you and your young one I would say good luck ... But I don't think you need any ! You seem so very capable Enjoy your new beginning xoxo
I'm excited for this new beginning, it's been needed for a while. It's been SO nice to not hear people constantly walking down the hall or slamming things in the apartment below me. The hardest thing for me to get used to so far is not going out of my way to be quiet. I didn't realize how much I had tip toed or walked softly or how often I would turn the tv down until I could barely hear it so I wouldn't be too noisy.

    Yay! Glad to hear the move went well. Never a fun thing but it can be exciting. Hope the Spawn likes her new school and you both settle in nicely.
We did the school tour yesterday, everyone is so friendly. She met most of her teachers, we found her locker, got the scoop on what her first day will be like. I can see why they are so picky about the new students, it's a really caring staff and friendly school. When I was there they told me they don't get government funding, they aren't a school of choice school.

    It really did seem like it was time a big change for you (did you feel like you might’ve been going a little crazy, at times?). Sounds like it has been a good change, so far, and may get even better, as you find out more about your new digs. Hopefully the Spawn will be happy with her new school and circle of friends. Are you close enough that you can still see some (and definitely not all) of the folks around where you used to live? A different commute experience might be nice. At least ‘til winter …? You certainly have “earned” something good. Congrats, sweetie.
Thank you, and yes, I'm still working at the same job so I'll be seeing everything I used to see all the time. I've been ready for a move and a change for about 2 years now, I just had to wait for the right opportunity to come along. It finally came along.... A few of my work peeps are wanting to come over for a housewarming get together, I think I might just do one.
