Past, Present, and Future

This non-blogging thing is becoming quite the bad habit, but after you read this post, I am pretty sure you will forgive me!


I’ll start by filling you in on the PAST week (or so)…


After maintaining some nice balance of work and play, water and wine, sleep and fun, our house went up on the market for rent last Friday.  The BOY and I got some instant attention and spent all of last Saturday out and about while people came by to check out the place.


By Saturday night, we were happy to just be home enjoying a cheese plate and wine out back.  Even this guy liked chilling in the back yard…


And by Sunday, I realized that wine and warrior III don’t mix so well after a 75 minute hot class and a few hours of pose clinics during yoga teacher training : )  Sunday night, we had rental applications and a lot of good feedback on our house!  And by Monday night, we had renters…who needed to move in July 1st!



This week was a mix of work, yoga, and apartment searching in hopes of finding a quick place to move in to!


We spent Wednesday night and Thursday in the city, desperately searching for apartments and drinking and dining with my brother and sister in law (who were kind enough to house us!).  By this morning, it was pretty obvious that we did not have a place to live, despite one last attempt of walking through the 606 pleading my eyes to find a ‘For Rent’ sign.

All while enjoying the most amazing Bucktown coffee…


Which brings us to the PRESENT


This picture is the EXACT present…

My Friday off was not nearly as bad as the one in which I scrubbed my grout, but was pretty busy.


With 1 week until our move, it was time to start packing!  I called in reinforcements to help make the most of the day…


My parents arrived with lunch around noon and because they were dog sitting, they brought Dancer along as well.  We packed what seemed like a million boxes and I was feeing accomplished until I realized all that was left to pack. 


Around 4pm (with physical and mental exhaustion), we went in different directions as I headed off to yoga training and my parents took a bunch of boxes home.  Which brings us to your next question, I am sure…


What’s Next?  For now, the FUTURE looks like this…


Meet our new roommates!!!  We are moving in with my parents…Cooper and all for a month while we continue our apartment search in Chicago.  The pros…we have a place to live and the location allows me easy access to work and yoga training.  The BOY and I may be commuting together on the train into the city.  The crazy…we are moving in with my  parents…Cooper and all!  In 1 week!!!


Which means tomorrow is day 2 of packing and because of yoga training Sunday, it needs to be SUPER productive.  After that, I fear you may not hear from me for a bit.  It will just be short break, I promise, but with all of these changes and responsibilities, I may not be able to prioritize the blog until things have settled.  Like I said, I knew you would understand : )


Tell me about your past, present, and future!

Anyone have a 2 bedroom apartment they want to rent me in Chicago?!

  1. So excited for you!! Can’t wait to read all about it!! We are also moving. Selling everything we own and moving to Florida (from Indiana-the only place we have ever lived)! Quitting the only job I have known for 19 years and taking a chance. Only taking what we can fit in our 2 cars. Extremely nerve wracking but fun at the same time. Good luck!!

    • OMG! You are inspirational! We are attempting to pack up everything we own and we are in desperate need of a purge! Keep me posted on your progress and best of luck with all of your adventures ahead!!!

  2. Wow!! hope living with your parents is going good!! since this was a couple of weeks ago maybe you have found a place by now!! #fingerscrossed
