I realize this post brings bigs news! I am currently finishing the last month at my job and going on the road with my husband this year. We are moving out of our Atlanta apartment and putting all of our stuff in storage for the season. Can you imagine life without ALL of your clothes/shoes/candles...ya know that stuff that you just need in your life on a day to day basis.
A few old kitchen items we don't mind leaving behind if we have to and a small bin of linens and towels...
A box of books...bc I'm still trying to read 30 of them this year...3 down 27 to go ;-)
My new computer
and, of course, the things I haven't packed yet - 1 large suitcase for clothes and 1 suitcase for toiletries.
I'm not so sure how I am going to do with this HUGE transition in my life. I mean it's hard enough to become a professional stay at home wife, but not having all my things seems a little crazy.
Fortunately, I have a lot of great friends who have done the same thing and they all say that I will get used to it and find my way. I am looking forward to the time off don't get me wrong, but I'm not a person who can just sit at home all day everyday. That's another story...
The reason we can only bring minimal stuff? Because in the "baseball world" you aren't necessarily guaranteed the luxury of staying in one city for the whole season. At any moment we could be moving and/or moving back so you have to be prepared to get up and go in a couple hours notice. I don't have to get up and go with him, but I also don't want to be stuck moving an apartment full of stuff by myself. It's not the glamorous life you'd think it would be, but it's our life. (Kate Gosselin anyone?) What would you bring for 7 months on the road?
