Blog post 2 - free write (module 5)

I will admit to being a tad bit behind but there's some big news...

I'm moving!!!!

So, as the move is getting closer and I'm slowly getting more and more excited, I figured I would choose this to write about for my free write blog post. 


Since I was two years old I've lived in the same house. Never moved, never really even thought of moving. Then a couple months ago I was home for the weekend and my mom told me that we're thinking of moving because we owe more on our house than it's worth... Usually people get upset or angry that they're moving, but I was estatic! (Mostly because 1) It's only like 7 minutes from my house now and 2) because it's actually closer to my very best friend in the entire world) 

Since then I've been so excited to start all over again in a new place and make new memories and traditions. We will be all moved in before Christmas Eve, and we plan to be fully unpacked and set up by Christmas Eve because we will be hosting Christmas Eve at the new house with a bunch of our closest family and friends! I'm also excited because last Christmas and winter season was incredibly rough for my family and I. We lost my mom's mom (my Grandma), my mom's sister (my Aunt) and my mom's brother in law (my Uncle), all within two months from each other. I truly feel like if we were to not have moved and had to have Christmas in the same house this year, it just would have been sad for all of us. We all want a fresh start, even if it is less than 10 minutes away. 

We have already moved some things into the new place and I finally get my own bathroom attached to my room!!! I've always had to share a bathroom with my two sisters or use my parent's, and it'll be SO convenient to have my own! I won't have to wait for one of my sisters to shower or get ready (which they take forever to do) and I can decorate it however I want! I know, it's such a silly thing to be so excited over but I cannot wait! (I am also right next to the kitchen, so if I ever want a midnight snack, I can just walk a few steps into the kitchen and eat whatever I want, whereas in my old house I had to creep past my parent's room and try to go downstairs as quietly as I could.) 

All in all, I couldn't be more excited to start new in a new place (with a pool and hot tub and steam showers and a private beach all overlooking Candlewood Lake!!!!!!!!!!)! This will (knock on wood) be the best Christmas ever!
