Whew. It has been a long week. And this is a long post. Trying to get everything all packed up was a less than joyous occasion. By the time Wednesday rolled around, I realized how much still was not in a box. How does it do that? The day went by too fast, and before I knew it the movers were there ready to start moving things, and I just wasn't quite ready. I was frantic. I kept laying things down and forgetting where they were. I ran out of tape. I was running out of boxes. And I hadn't eaten anything all day. I was ready to burst into tears at any given moment.
More than ever did I realize how wonderful and amazing our friends and neighbors really are. Dear dear friends who bring me food and make me sit down and eat it, plastic wrap my Christmas tree, make lids for boxes that have none, and just tell me over and over again that everything will be fine.
We were moving everything over to Taylor's adviser's garage, and I was so stressed about it not fitting. When we showed up with a nearly full 16' truck, he seemed a little stressed as well. At that point, I had lost my mind, I had just recovered from a crying fit, my hair was a mess, and I was covered in hamburger drippings...so I really didn't care. Once again the amazing friends played a little tetris and got everything to fit beautifully. Success. Except for having to leave all of our food storage behind because, according to the man, "even though cans would probably be fine, they're hardly worth shipping across the country"
I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful it was to have so much help. I just couldn't have done it on my own, especially after a month of packing by myself. They just took care of everything and got my apartment all cleaned. I was such an emotional mess. And it was our 3rd anniversary, but I did it all because I love Taylor more than enough to follow him all over the country to pursue his dreams.
Everything has just worked out beautifully, and now I'm here in Utah unwinding. I will go to Boston next week to find a place to live, and I have no doubt that things will continue to work out as well as they have. I already miss SB so much. I get sad when I think too much about it. It was two of the very best years I've ever had.
