So I went and cleaned our house today and as of tomorrow morning, it is listed For Sale. It really helped me to work in there, I was able to find some closure with a lot of things and go through a list of memories...that now make me smile, laugh, cry, and feel and incredible sense of accomplishment.
Moving into the house knowing that we would be starting a family soon.
I remembered the day that I frantically began tearing wall paper down in the bathroom as I was getting ready for the upcoming laparoscopy/hysteroscopy.
The day I replaced the floor in the kitchen. The therapy I used to help heal from the miscarriage.
The day, on the couch, that we decided to adopt and I felt such relief and joy.
The day we brought the kids home and they explored the house...finding their bedrooms, the kitchen...the love.
Painting the kids rooms as we waited to hear the placement date.
Waking up on Saturday mornings to the sound of laughter and bubbling over with joy.
Sitting on the toilet at 1:30 am waiting on a pregnancy test.
Screaming at 1:30 am in the bathroom as the word "Pregnant" shows up.
Making the toilet my best friend as I go through the worlds worst morning sickness.
4 months of bedrest. That couch was my best friend.
Leaving the house at 5:30 am knowing that we would be bringing our newborn son home soon.
And finally, driving up to the house today and hearing Staci say, "Home sweet home!"
I will miss that house and all the memories held there dearly. Luckily, I also hold them in my heart.
